A group of children get more danger than they bargained for in the spooky Scottish castle to which they've been sent to escape the London Blitz--I got goosebumps down my spine reading the first page of THE CHARMING CHILDREN OF ROOKSKILL CASTLE, and they didn't go away for a second reading all the rest of it. This captivating mystery mixes magic and spies with just the right amount of chills to make one heck of a page-turner. With its great cast of characters and utterly original premise, it's a fantastic book for middle-grade adventurers!

Brazos loves books in translation, and this March we're bringing that love to the Brazos Treehouse! Our featured YA book this month comes from one of Brazil's best-loved authors of children's literature, coming to the United States for the first time! When newly-orphaned Samuel takes shelter from a storm inside the hollow head of a sculpture of St. Anthony, he's not expecting the music that echoes through it--or the prayers of the townsfolk that he hears echoing through like whispers. THE HEAD OF THE SAINT is a gorgeous story of magical realism, faith, and humor, unlike anything you've read before.
