Book Review - Grave Images
About the Book
A stylish debut mystery with the perfect balance of sweetness and scares!
Thirteen-year-old Bernie's summer is looking pretty grim. It's hard to make friends when your family runs a monument company, and your backyard is littered with tombstones. It's even harder when your mother suddenly refuses to leave her room...
To make matters worse, her father has just hired a new artist to engrave the headstones--the creepy Mr. Stein. Bernie has a bad feeling about him right from the start, and after snooping around his cottage, she discovers an engraved portrait of their neighbor . . . a woman who promptly dies the next day. And it's not just a weird coincidence. The pattern continues, and Bernie realizes that Mr. Stein has begun engraving headstones before people die, which forces Bernie to ask a horrifying question: Is Mr. Stein predicting the deaths . . . or causing them?

My Take on the Book
We loved this book and it was perfect as we get ready for Halloween.Not to say that it is overly scary or anything, but it was a great mystery with some scares mixed in. The book is a fun read that my daughter jumped right into and kept asking me to stay up reading throughout the week that she plowed through it. Overall, she said that it was awesome and asked if there were others in a series. Unfortunately not yet, but hopefully there will be more to come!
