Skylar Robbins: The Mystery of Shadow Hills

Skylar Robbins: The Mystery of Shadow Hills


I have loved to read ever since I can remember. When I was young I discovered mysteries and couldn’t get enough – Encyclopedia Brown, Harriet the Spy, Nancy Drew and The Hardy Boys were some of my early favorites. I still have my Hardy Boys collection and pull a book out every now and then to read it again.

The Skylar Robbins mystery series by Carrie Cross has the same kind of appeal with a character and situations that modern and a little bit edgy in a kid-appropriate way. Skylar is a13 year old California girl and the book will be fun for kids in that age range and a few years younger.

The Mystery of Shadow Hills is spooky, mysterious and adventurous. It’s a fun and imaginative escape that will get kids excited about reading.
