Grim Hill, The Secret Deepens is the second book by Linda DeMeulemeesteer in what is emerging as a winning, fun, and spooky series. Thirteen-year-old Cat lives with her mom and younger sister Sookie in a small town where subtly strange things happen. Life appears normal on the surface, with Cat playing soccer, attending school, and battling the boys. But mystery and magic infuse the lives of the town’s children, and fairies are afoot. In this adventure, Sookie seems a bit too into performing magic tricks, and her performances have strange effects on the children and the weather. What is with this town? (Ages 9-12) mRb
