Books: Mary Downing Hahn

A has a great author to recommend to you: Mary Downing Hahn. A has read 8 of her books and has loved them all. One of the things A likes about this author is the special twists, like what happens in Closed for the Season. If A shares them with you then that will ruin it :) Another thing is that they are exciting and keep you reading. Hahn puts cliffhangers at the ends of chapters. Finally, A says the author writes using first person narrative which helps understand how the characters feel and then you can connect with him or her.

The other books of Hahn's that A has read:

Deep and Dark and Dangerous
The Ghost of Crutchfield Hall
The Doll in the Garden
The Old Willis Place
All the Lovely Bad Ones
The Dead Man in Indian Creek
Wait Till Helen Comes

These books are aimed at readers aged 10 - 14.
