Your Friday Five: Oldies But Goodies

Katie's Picks

When I was a kid, reading was all about secret spaces and hiding spots. I would read in cupboards with a flashlight, climb trees and nestle in a crook with a book, crawl under beds, hide behind sofas, and squeeze into closets in order to be by myself and become enveloped in whatever world my current book would take me.These five recommendations from the past are not just great books for the 8-12 set; they're also perfect reads for the reader with a secret spot because they're filled with mystery and magic and secrets and spaces. Enjoy.
