A racy detective-style mystery, The Lighthouse Kids is the latest offering from successful children's author Diana Chase. Ellie and Davey are recent orphans who have been sent to live with their grandfather in Larsen's Point by the sea. They have long heard about Lighthouse Cottage from their mother, but they had no idea what mysteries it would, in fact, hold for them. In the trunks at the attic of Lighthouse Cottage they stumble upon a tangled web of sea-hunters, caves and the secret of "OSL 1756," which turns out to be more than extraordinary.

Grade 4-6–Ellie and Davey arrive at Larsen's Point to live with their grandfather, whom they don't know. Their recently deceased mother had a falling out with him, and the children know next to nothing about her life growing up by the sea with her lighthouse keeper father. Grandpa is a grumpy, stubborn, and shy old man. Ellie has her work cut out for her to try and uncover the stories of her mother's life and relationships, and find, in turn, her own sense of family in this strange place. An exciting subplot of pirates, lost treasure, and mystery unfolds, ultimately bringing Ellie, Davey, and Grandpa together and helping to forge new family ties. A heartwarming story of loss, healing, and the bravery of two siblings searching for family, this story would be a welcome addition in any library.–Elizabeth Fernandez, Brunswick Middle School, Greenwich, CT
