A girl unravels a centuries-old mystery after moving into a haunted house in this deliciously suspenseful mystery.

Tessa Woodward isn’t exactly thrilled to move to rainy, cold Chicago from her home in sunny Florida. But homesickness turns to icy fear when unexplainable things start happening in her new house. Things like flickering lights, mysterious drawings appearing out of nowhere, and a crackling noise she can feel in her bones.

When her little brother’s doll starts crying real tears, Tessa realizes that someone—or something—is trying to communicate with her. And it involves a secret that’s been shrouded in mystery for more than one hundred years.

With the help of three new friends, Tessa begins unraveling the mystery of what happened in the house on Shady Street—and more importantly, what it has to do with her!

    Great book! Note: Spoilers!It's about a girl named Tessa Woodward. She is moving from her old home in sunny Florida all the way to Chicago. She's a little nerveous. But it becomes more then nervous when on the first night in her new house there are flickering lights and a random drawing and very creepy noises out of randomnes! A few days into all this she and her new friends try to unravel the mystery of shady street.

      This interesting book is called The Peculiar Incident on Shady Street . It was written by Lindsay Currie. It was written in 2017. I thought it was the best book ever because of the interesting ,scary,and amazing settings. Tessa moved to Chicago and she hated it. The streets smelled like sewer.That night there was crying and footsteps.At School, she met Andrew,Richie, and Nina who said’’ it might be Inez Clark’’. So then they investigated.They figured out something in the end that you have to read it to find out . I believe that the that the best part was when they were in the graveyard. And they when to Inez’s grave.Then it got dark. Then there was crying and fog. They were running for the gate and Nini went missing into the fog. I thought the setting was amazing. I think this because a house on Shady Street that used to be a graveyard in Chicago.The windy city.There is so much to explore there. In that wonderful place where all the amazing things are. I strongly believe that the amazing setting and awesome city was a good choice .I recommend the people that like ghosts and mystery.
