Magic Tree House
Junie B. Jones
Guy obsesses about death. He talks to his dead dad in the cemetery and resolves to write down everything his recently deceased father said to him. When his friend, Anoop, convinces him to join an after school forensics club, life gets interesting. He discovers a shocking secret that his father kept from him concerning the strangers he saw at his dad’s funeral. A robbery, stolen treasure, a dead body, and a healthy dose of humor and teenage angst make this a fast read.
