After six children receive invitations from an eccentric countess, they encounter mysterious keys, things that go bump in the night and secret passages during the weekend visit of a lifetime. The children unknowingly share a connection, but rather than bringing them together, this bond nearly destroys them.
As in Jessica Lawson’s previous novel, The Actual & Truthful Adventures of Becky Thatcher, Nooks & Crannies features a plucky young girl. Tabitha Crum’s only friend is a special mouse, but she still manages a super-positive outlook on life. Things are looking pretty grim at the mansion, so Tabitha and her trusty mouse use their sleuthing skills—picked up from reading so many mystery novels—to solve the secrets of old Hollingsworth Hall. Readers will delight in the unexpected twists and turns at every junction.
In true Sherlock Holmes style, Tabitha logically and fearlessly pursues the truth. Not only does she solve the mystery, but she makes some new friendships—the real treasure of the weekend.
