Congratulations to Fleur Bradley on the release of her new mystery for kids, MIDNIGHT AT THE BARCLAY HOTEL. Called “a quirky, kid-friendly introduction to the murder mystery” by Kirkus, it released August 25th from Viking Books for Young Readers (imprint of Penguin Random House). Pick up a copy at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Indiebound, and independent booksellers worldwide.
ABOUT THE BOOK: When JJ Jacobson convinced his mom to accept a surprise invitation to an all-expenses-paid weekend getaway at the illustrious Barclay Hotel, he never imagined that he’d find himself in the midst of a murder mystery. He thought he was in for a run-of-the-mill weekend ghost hunting at the most haunted spot in town, but when he arrives at the Barclay Hotel and his mother is blamed for the hotel owner’s death, he realizes his weekend is going to be anything but ordinary.
Now, with the help of his new friends, Penny and Emma, JJ has to track down a killer, clear his mother’s name, and maybe even meet a ghost or two along the way.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Fleur Bradley is passionate about two things: mysteries and getting kids to read, and she regularly speaks at librarian and educator conferences on reaching reluctant readers. Originally from the Netherlands, Fleur now lives in Colorado Springs with her husband and two daughters, and entirely too many cats.
