Grade 4-6–This anthology features a range of stories from mysteries and time travel to ghosts and the paranormal. Peter Lerangis's Loser is a funny story about a kid who finds everything he's ever lost. Heidi E. Y. Stemple and Jane Yolen's Max, the Hand, and Me is a traditional, hair-raising mystery. Will Weaver's Marked for Death is a deeply affecting story. While some selections are more artfully crafted than others, each has its own strength, and the collection as a whole is engaging and readable.–Adrienne Furness, Webster Public Library, NY
