    Fans of Mary Downing Hahn are going to eat this up! This book had just the right amount of spookiness to it for middle grade readers. I was on the edge of my seat without being too scared and I think my 9 year old readers (and up) will feel the same way. This would make an amazing read...

    Good story, but there were many spelling and punctuation errors. Richie's name was sometimes spelled with a 't' and the time line was mixed up at the beginning regarding what day it was. Tessa was alright, but she was obsessed with having a cell phone and regularly whined about it, alt...

    I was lucky enough to read this through an ARC on Net Galley. The Peculiar Incident on Shady Street presents like a creepy MG thriller and it delivers on this promise with a moderately scary plot that will be suitable for almost all middle grade readers. It?s certainly creepy but ...

    Ahhhhh! This book is PHENOMENAL. It?s a middle grade ghost story so you should read it just for that! Currie will creep you out in the best way. But even though there?s a two-hundred-year-old mystery and dusty, hidden secrets and LOTS of scary stuff (the kind of scary stuff that ga...

    Before getting to the review of this book, I have to mention how much I enjoyed the geographically correct Chicago setting. So many books get it wrong, and when I realized that this one was not going to do that to me, I settled into the couch ready for this adventure. Is the parano...

    As soon as I started reading The Peculiar Incident on Shady Street, it took me back to my younger self, the one who ingested books more than food on many occasions. I felt like twelve year old Kendra again, attempting to solve the mystery that was laid out before me. I got chills, I fe...

    A scary ghost story that will be a favorite of Mary Downing Hahn fans. Gave me nightmares, but also had wonderful themes of friendship and showed how hard it can be for kids to move from their home and start life with people at a new school, especially middle grade kids. Luckily for Te...

    This was a solid kids supernatural horror mystery. There were several times reading it when I was surprised at how menacing the tone of the ghost seemed to be. For a kids? book, it actually did get fairly creepy a few times. (Though that could be because there is a ventriloquist doll...

    This book was great! I think Tessa is such a great character, and she showed so much bravery in the story, and in the end, she wasn't scared of the ghost anymore. She had overcome her fear and solved the mystery of Inez Briggs. I loved when Andrew, Nina, and Tessa came together and sol...
