I am slightly sad to say goodbye to the 2013 Nutmeg titles - even the ones I haven't gotten around to reading feel like friends! The winning titles will be announced in a few weeks.
But we now have these great new titles to fall in love with! (and multiple copies at RML so come check them out!)
My fifth grade daughter and friend are providing me with their recommendations on which ones look the most interesting, so here's a preview:
The Candymakers by Wendy Mass
An obnoxious rich kid, a spy, a child who witnessed a tragic event, and the son of a candy factory owner come together to compete in a national candy competition for best new candy. Mysteries abound. Candy lovers will find this book a sweet read!

Arthur and Logan tackle the derelict amusement park, The Magic Forest, hoping to solve a murder. The victim was the previous owner of Logan's new home! The park is supposedly closed for the season, so who is in there with them, and are they in danger?
