If you’re new to this books into fashion series, you can catch up with the others HERE.
It’s been some time since I’ve done one of my books into fashion collages! I’ve been too busy reading! Which is fine with me, because now I have more material to continue these collages
I’ve proclaimed my love for juvenile fiction a million times, and have no problem admitting I love books for tweens. Even though I’m a librarian, for some reason I didn’t read many of the classics kids do in school. I really loved non-fiction books, National Geographic magazines, and watching PBS then (another growing up without cable kid over here, perfectly and sadly explained by Buzzfeed). I was not exposed to many of these classics for kids until I began working in schools and libraries as an adult, and now I feel very connected to them – so much, that I make it an effort to actually read grown-up fiction in between my regular teen fiction (I still love non-fiction books though).
And who doesn’t love a good detective/mystery story?! Nancy Drew is one of those classic series that you’ll always have around. The Secret of the Old Clock by Carolyn Keene is the first in the series, where young protagonist Nancy is a total go-getter out to figure out what happened to the real will after a man mysteriously dies (spoiler alert: the title of the book gives away the story).

I’ll start this one by saying if you haven’t read the Westing Game by Ellen Raskin, step away from your computer and find yourself a copy right now. It was one of the first juvenile fiction books I read when I began working in the library. It’s an extremely intricate murder mystery with lots of characters all fitting into pieces of the story. The people living in an apartment complex are thrown into a game, solving a puzzle of how a millionaire was murdered. The person or team to figure it out would inherit his money – so everyone scrambles to solve the mystery. A vague description that does the story no justice! One of my favorite books ever.

I just finished reading Where’d You Go Bernadette not that long ago, I hope that count’s as a mystery book (a very hilarious one). It’s such a good book I also highly recommend you read if you haven’t already!
