"Greystone Secrets: The Strangers" by Margaret Peterson Haddix


greystoneysbookcoverChess, Emma, and Finn Greystone are not original. One day on the news they learn about three children that have been kidnapped who have their exact names, birthdays, faces, and even the same mom. It could have just been a weird coincidence, but their mom freaks out and leaves them with a woman they’ve never met. What is going on? Things get even stranger when the Greystone kids discover their mom’s discarded cell phone with a coded letter on it, telling them that she’s probably not coming back. Knowing that their mom wouldn’t willingly abandon them, Chess, Emma, and Finn set out to decode the letter and get their mom back. But can they understand it all when alternate universes are involved?


"Greystone Secrets: The Strangers" by Margaret Peterson Haddix is the first in a new series from kid favorite Haddix.
