I've continued reading mysteries since, but I really don't like anything that is gory or violent. That's not enjoyable reading for me. Lots of grown-up mysteries involve murder, so I tend to be very careful about what I choose to read. So, I am in the midst of evaluating the mystery collection at Two Springs. I am currently reading The Calder Game by Blue Balliett. So far, it involves the artwork of Alexander Calder and the disappearance of a boy named Calder Pillay. I'm still waiting to see how it all comes together, but so far -- so good. It is making me want to look up and learn a little about Alexander Calder, who really did live and create art!
I would love to know people's favorite mysteries. What mysteries would be good to recommend for students at Two Springs?
