Waiting on Wednesday #8

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

And gosh, I have a fantastic offering this week especially to those who just absolutely adore middle-grade novels. Well, everyone knows Kim Harrington and must have read Clarity by now and for sure, are eagerly awaiting for Perception. That Ms. Harrington is one very busy lady as she just ventured into middle-grade ground with the first 2 books in her Sleuth or Dare mystery series. Squeeeeeee!!! I’m in MG heaven. Hope you like these, too:

Partners in Crime (Sleuth or Dare #1) by Kim Harrington

SUMMARY: Whodunit?

When best friends Darcy and Norah have to create a fake business for a school assignment, they come up with a great idea: a detective agency! Darcy loves mysteries, and Norah likes helping people, so it’s a perfect fit.

But then their pretend agency gets a real case. Someone is missing, and it’s up to Darcy and Norah to take on the search. Unfortunately, there’s someone else out there who doesn’t want the two detectives stirring up any trouble . . .

With the help of hidden clues, spy gadgets, and trusted friends, can Darcy and Norah crack the case in time?

Sleepover Stakeout (Sleuth or Dare #2)
By Kim Harrington
Release Date: June 1st 2012
Format: Paperback
Publisher: Scholastic, Inc.

Sleepover Stakeout (Sleuth or Dare #2) by Kim Harrington


Norah and Darcy’s detective agency, Partners in Crime, is taking on a new and chilling case. The girls’ classmate, Maya, is hearing strange, crackling voices coming over the baby monitor while she’s babysitting late at night. Maya is worried someone might be in danger.

To help investigate, Norah and Darcy join her for a sleepover stakeout. In between eating snacks and watching TV, the girls are on high alert for anything suspicious. Soon, they stumble upon a mysterious secret they never could have imagined — but Norah and Darcy clash over how to interpret the new clues.

Can the girls get past their differences to see their way to the truth?

It’s pretty clear that I’m very excited about these babies. I mean who wouldn’t? Great new stories, awesome covers, and all that MG goodness in cute delicious packages. Really, 2012 should be here upon us already. πŸ˜€

    • I am, too. I’m glad I stumbled upon that information and I thought of sharing it on my WoW post. Thanks for dropping by, Wendy! πŸ˜‰

    • I think I will forever be a kid at heart so MGs are a special favorite. Hehe
      Thanks for reading my WoW post, Cheyenne! ^_^

  1. How fun! I don’t read MG but I’m always on the lookout for books for my nieces and these look absolutely perfect for them. I had no idea Kim Harrington was going to do them – extra special! I definitely am adding them to my wishlist so I don’t forget about them before I can pick them up. Thanks. πŸ™‚

  2. Ooh I didn’t realise Kim was the author of these! I had seen the covers once or twice, but the author name never clicked. I haven’t actually read Clarity yet (shame on me!), but I have heard fantastic things about it so she’s definitely an author I’m interested in reading. Especially with all these awesome books she’s written!!

  3. I don’t read a lot of middle grade, but I love Clarity so much that I may just have to pick these up. I’m interested to see what Kim does with this new series. Excellent pick. Thanks for stopping on by!

Would love to hear from you. Please leave a reply. ;)
