Closed for the Season

A book review by Catty C.

Closed for the Season by Mary Downing Hahn is a chilling tale following 2 boys as they unravel the secrets to a unsolved murder in one of their homes. Over all, it is a great novel with a shocking plot twist that leaves readers on the edge and begging for more. If you want more of her, I recommend All the Lovely Bad Ones, another fantastic novel.
