The Forgotten Secret, the latest installment in Linda DeMeulemeester’s popular Grim Hill series, sees Cat Peters still adjusting to her new life in a small town. Besides struggling to keep the peace in her soccer team, Cat desperately wants to earn enough money to buy an outfit for an upcoming dance at her school – not to mention that the malicious denizens of Fairy are readying to break into this world again, using Cat’s town as a portal. Cat thinks she’s found a sympathetic ear in another new arrival, the beautiful Lea, but Lea’s aunt has a dark mission that will threaten their budding friendship. DeMeulemeester offers a realistic heroine in the form of the conflicted Cat, and a storyline that fantasy addicts will devour. (Ages 9 – 12) mRb

Andrea Belcham lives in Saint-Lazare, where many of her best neighbours are trees.
