Michael Cart calls “Encore, encore” for today’s MM BTT, an adult mystery with YA-crossover appeal. In Kate Racculia’s Bellweather Rhapsody (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt), twelve-year-old Minnie Graves witnesses a murder-suicide and, fifteen years later, returns to the scene of the crime–the Bellweather Hotel–for a music conference. From there, I’m told that “the book is in the spirit of Agatha Christie, The Shining, and… Glee.” See for yourself in the Tarot cards!
If you need another reason to visit the Booklist booth at ALA Annual Conference in Las Vegas, please allow me: Kaite Mediatore Stover, celebrated readers’ advisor and author of Booklist’s popular She Reads column, has another trick up her sleeve—reading Tarot! Stop by the booth to see if the cards hold 50% off a new Booklist subscription for you! See you there on Saturday, June 28, from 1:00-3:00 p.m. at the Booklist booth (#617).
