A spooky tale set in a mysterious bookshop perfect for 8+

Young readers will be gripped by the mystery of Delores Mackenzie

A middle grade mystery set in a bookshop was an easy pick for us! Plus it has an inspiring relatable heroine and it's just a little bit spooky - what's not to love?


When Delores Mackenzie is chased home by a restless spirit, she is sent to the mysterious Uncles in Edinburgh Old Town to learn how to control her unusual ‘gifts’. Scared and alone, she finds her new home at the Tolbooth Book Store is full of curious surprises: some welcome, others less so. But when a sinister apparition threatens the lives of her strange new housemates, Delores must gather all her strength to save them.

Yvonne Banham grew up on an island off the coast of Cumbria and now lives in Edinburgh with her husband. The Dark and Dangerous Gifts of Delores Mackenzie is her debut novel.
