Best described as "creepy", Oppel's new novel reads like a fever dream (for kids). In The Nest, a young boy strikes a bargain with a swarm of wasps who promise to make the health problems of his baby brother go away. Yet what seems to be a good idea at first turns out to be quite the opposite. Eerie appearances by a "working" toy telephone, a bizarre neighborhood knife salesman, and many dream-dialogues with a queen bee anchor this very gripping novel. Ideal for kids (8-13) looking for a thriller! ~Reviewed by Aubrey Restifo
