The Winterborne Home for Vengeance and Valor will make you gasp, laugh and keep guessing until the very end.
Carter is an absolute master at what she does. The characters are wonderful, and April makes so spectacular protagonist. I was absolutely cheering for her and her new found family by the end.
This is a must-read middle grade, fully of mystery and suspense, that is going to see lots of children reading past their bedtimes! - Rebecca

“A fast-paced thrill ride of a book . . . it’s Batman meets Annie.” —Stuart Gibbs, New York Times best-selling author of the Spy School series
“An adventure-filled read with a twisty mystery and spunky friendships. I loved it!” –Melissa de la Cruz, New York times best-selling author of The Descendants series
April didn't mean to start the fire. She wasn’t the one who broke the vase. April didn’t ask to go live in a big, creepy mansion with a bunch of orphans who just don't understand that April isn’t like them. After all, April’s mother is coming back for her someday very soon.
All April has to do is find the clues her mother left inside the massive mansion. But Winterborne House is hiding more than one secret, so April and her friends are going to have to work together to unravel the riddle of a missing heir, a creepy legend, and a mysterious key before the only home they’ve ever known is lost to them forever.
