Zebra Forest

Annie lives on the edge of the forest with her little brother Rew and her Gran. They live a pretty quiet life, but it is not easy because Rew and Annie’s grandma is not really able to take care of them. They don’t complain, though, because they want to stay together and while the house might not be super tidy and their meals might sometimes be thrown together, they are managing. One thing that brings them joy is the beautiful forest next to their house; it was always a peaceful place until the scary man tumbled out of it and ran into their house. The man had escaped from prison and run through the woods; he decided to hold them hostage and wait out the police search of the area. Something is fishy about the way Gran reacted to this man in their house bossing them around; is she just older and more confused than they realize or is this man someone she knows?

If you enjoy reading books that include family mysteries you might also like: All Rise for the Honorable Perry T. Cook, by Leslie Connor, Trell, by Dick Lehr, or Mockingbird, by Kathryn Erskine.
