The Lost Library, by Rebecca Stead and Wendy Mass is one of my favorites of the year and the best middle grade novel I've read in quite some time. It is a highly entertaining mystery with many charming elements, not the least of which is a newly erected free library guarded by a large orange cat. A wonderful cast of characters propel the story along quickly but there is much to linger over. At its core it is very much a love letter to books, libraries and librarians. ~ Reviewed by Jessica Wood
