The Midnight Children by Dan Gemeinhart


In the dead of night, seven children move into the house next door.  They are not related but they are a family.

Henry Holt and Co. (BYR) and Edelweiss allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It will publish August 30th.

Ravani sees them move in and soon makes a friend of a girl his age.  But a hunter is after them.  He'll return them to orphanage, where they will be separated.

Danger, play acting, and more help them hide, but they will soon be caught if they don't make a plan of escape.

It's an exciting book with bullying, close encounters, and hidden talents helping.  It will keep you readng.

The best part is the ending.  I was surprised but I liked it!
