    Orphaned April didn't mean to burn down the Winterborne exhibit, so she is shocked when, instead of getting in trouble, she hears from a "Miss Nelson," who invites her to live at Winterborne House, home to the billionaire family beset by tragedy, including the disappearance of their heir, Gabriel. At the house, she meets four other children—Sadie, an inventor; Violet, a quiet girl; Tim, Violet's companion; and Colin, a former thief—but April is determined to learn everything she can about the Winterbornes. When she discovers Gabriel hiding in caverns beneath the mansion, she must convince him to reveal himself before the family declares him dead. New York Times best-selling Carter's middle-grade debut will excite a new generation of fans—even if they do see the bad guy coming from a mile away. The characters are likable and endearing, and the final paragraph, with its subtly shocking revelation, will leave readers demanding to know when the second book is coming. Hand this one to those who enjoy action, mystery, and kick-butt characters. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: The ever-popular Carter's middle-grade debut, supported by a seven-city author tour, is sure to draw interest. Grades 4-7. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
