Lionus Hunt is an elderly stroke victim that is confined to his bed. He can’t talk, but he can blink – once for yes, twice for no. He can also listen, so Herculeah Jones has been visiting Mr. Hunt to read outloud. Mr. Hunt wants Herculeah to read the book “The Terror in Black Tower.” Oddly, Mr. Hunt’s creepy old mansion has a spooky tower too. In fact, neighbor kids call “Hunt House,” “Haunt House” because it looks so scary. Creepy doesn’t bother Herculeah a bit, especially when she finds out that the house not only looks creepy, but has a mysterious, murderous past too.
The questions start to pile up when Mr. Hunt appears to be trying to tell Herculeah something important, but his gruff nurse won’t let her ask him any questions. What is it that Mr. Hunt is trying to tell Hurculeah? Does it have to do with the tower and the murder that happened there many years ago? Author: Betsy Byars

Hero is starting sixth grade in a new school. She’s used to it, the starting over, but being used to it doesn’t make it any easier. Having a weird first name doesn’t help either. On the first day of school when the teacher calls Hero’s name, somebody shouts out, “that’s my dog’s name,” which begins Hero’s downward slide into misery at school.
Things take a turn for the better when Hero meets her elderly neighbor, Mrs. Roth, who just happens to be friends with the cutest boy in the eighth grade, Danny Cordova. What Hero doesn’t know is that Mrs. Roth has a secret, a big secret. The secret is sparkly, large, can be made into jewelry…and is worth a fortune. The thing is, Mrs. Roth doesn’t know exactly where it is, all she has is a clue. Mrs. Roth decides that Hero and Danny are just the people to take the clue and launch an investigation of their own. But finding the diamond is only part of the mystery, because Mrs. Roth isn’t the only one with a secret, the diamond has one too. Author: Elise Broach
