The Screaming Staircase by Jonathan Stroud

If you are looking for a scary book to spice up the end of summer, this book would be a great choice.London is being plagued with deadly ghosts, and for some reason, only children have the ability to see and eliminate them. Lockwood & Co, a team of 3 children working without adult supervision, find themselves taking on an impossible quest. They must eradicate the ghosts from an old English manor known for its screaming staircase, the red room, and the deaths of those who have tried before them. This chilling, suspenseful, fun, edge-of-your seat, fast paced story is a winner. Recommended for grades 5 and up.

A Crooked Kind of Perfect
by Linda Urban
Zoe dreams of playing the piano at Carnegie Hall. She knows that this is her destiny. What she gets, however, after finally convincing her parents to let her take lessons, is a Perfectone D-60 electric organ and a chance to play at Perform-O-Rama. Playing TV show tunes was not what she had in mind but she keeps at it and discovers some unexpected benefits. This book is fun, quirky, and inspiring. Recommended for 4-6 grades.
