Hazel Kaplansky is a firm believer in the pursuit of knowledge and truth-and she also happens to love a good mystery. When suspicions swirl that a Russian spy has infiltrated her small town of Maple Hill, Vermont, amidst the fervor of Cold War era McCarthyism, Hazel knows it's up to her to find a suspect... starting with Mr. Jones, the quietly suspicious grave digger. Plus she's found a perfect sleuthing partner in Samuel Butler, the new boy in school with a few secrets of his own. But as Hazel and Samuel piece together clues from the past and present, the truth is suddenly not what they expected, and what they find reveals more about themselves and the people of their cozy little town than they could ever have imagined.

Review:

“Hazel's inquisitiveness, independence and imperfections are a winning combination.” ―Kirkus Reviews

“There's lots to talk about here . . . making this a great choice for book clubs or class discussion.” ―Booklist

“The sense of the time period is seamlessly portrayed . . . The real strength of Blakemore's novel is the underlying juxtaposition of a seemingly pleasant small town and that community's harsh reaction to those who are different.” ―The Horn Book Magazine

“A strong work of historical fiction for mystery fans.” ―School Library Journal

“Hazel is an engaging, if not always likable, girl, and her kid's-eye-view of life offers an accessible entryway to the McCarthy/Cold War era. Blakemore's characters are refreshingly three-dimensional . . . Will also appeal to the mystery lovers of the middle grade crowd.” ―BCCB

“Science, history and literature references glow . . . With keen intelligence and bits of humor, the prose slips calmly between narrative perspectives, trusting readers to pick up a revelation that Ephraim and Mallory don't see--and it's a doozy. This one is special.” ―Kirkus Reviews, starred review, on The Water Castle

“What shines through . . . is Blakemore's tender understanding of how these children--and all children--feel about their lives and the adults who control them.” ―The New York Times on The Water Castle

“A book that deserves love.” ―Elizabeth Bird from Fuse8 on The Water Castle

The Water Castle is full of adventure and mystery, but mostly it's about the importance of family, friendship and home.” ―The Washington Post on The Water Castle

“Blakemore skillfully explores the intersection of science and magic in this multifaceted story . . . a sense of skeptical wonder pervades the book and lingers.” ―Publishers Weekly on The Water Castle

“Hazel's inquisitiveness, independence and imperfections are a winning combination.” ―Kirkus Reviews
