The Screaming Staircase
by Jonathan Stroud
A sinister problem has occurred in London: all nature of ghosts, haunts, spirits, and specters are appearing throughout the city, and they aren't exactly friendly. Only young people have the psychic abilities required to see—and eradicate—these supernatural foes. Many different psychic detection agencies have cropped up to handle the dangerous work, and they are in fierce competition for business. In The Screaming Staircase, the first volume of Jonathan Stroud’s series Lockwood and Company, the plucky and talented Lucy Carlyle teams up with Anthony Lockwood, the charismatic leader of Lockwood & Co, a small psychic detective agency.
Book pick up at Youth Services desk begins Monday, September 26.
Meeting on Monday, October 24 at 4:30-5:30 PM.
