As a kid, I looked forward to summer break primarily because it meant plenty of time to sit in my hammock reading The Boxcar Children, The Hardy Boys, The Face on the Milk Carton, and The Westing Game. I must admit that hasn't changed much over the years, and now I'm itching to give a few of these a try during (what I hope will be) our beautiful Seattle summer. Now all I need is a hammock.

Are the Favia de Luce novels considered youth fiction? They would be at the top of my list.
