Tween Tuesday - The Summer of Moonlight Secrets

Tween Tuesday was started over at Green Bean Teen Queen as away to hightlight awesome books for the 9-12 year old set. AKA Tweens. Any book highlighted on Tween Tuesday does count for the In the Middle Reading Challenge. This week's book is:

The Summer of Moonlight Secrets
by Danette Haworth
From Amazon
At The Meriwether, Florida’s famous antebellum hotel off of Hope Springs, nothing is quite as it seems. Secret staircases give way to servants’ quarters and Prohibition-era speakeasies make for the perfect hide-and-seek spot. Allie Jo Jackson knows every nook and cranny of The Meriwether—she’s lived there her whole life—and nothing surprises her, until the first time she spots the enigmatic and beautiful Tara emerging from the springs. Tara’s shimmery skin, long flowing hair, and strange penchant for late moonlight swims disguise a mysterious secret—and once Allie Jo and her friend Chase discover Tara’s secret, nothing will ever be the same.
Why I Think Tweens Will Like It
I have a couple of reasons why tweens might like it.  I think the idea of the hotel full of secret staircases and hiding places would make them interested - I mean who doesn't like the thought of staying in a place where you could disappear behind the woodwork so to speak! I also think they'll like it because it's a mystery waiting to be solved.  And they'll be intrigued by the idea that the answer to this mystery could change everything.
Release date: May 25th
