    Full disclosure: I am the author's wife. I am also a middle and upper school librarian. I read this book in all its incarnations--from the first draft to publication. This is one of those stories that stays with you. It's fun and adventurous. It's a great story in the tradition of John Bellairs and also reminds me a little of some of the Choose Your Own Adventure mysteries I read when I was a kid (without the choosing).

I found it to be well researched, rooted in local (Cleveland) history, and mildly scary--not enough to keep one up at night, but enough to keep the pages turning. I would recommend this to middle school readers, but any age above that would enjoy it.
