Booklist - 05/01/2022 In this first of the Sinister Summer series, White’s middle-grade debut, twins Theo and Alexander, along with older sister, Wil, are whisked off for the summer to Aunt Saffronia’s house. It shouldn’t be concerning that they have never heard of her before, right? Soon she decides to buy a weeklong pass to the Fathoms of Fun Waterpark and drops them off with only the instructions to “find what was lost.” Not only is the park nearly empty, it is just plain weird. Employees wear black Victorian clothing, cabanas look like mausoleums (“cabasoleum!”), and, worst of all, there are no churros! The siblings discover the owner, Mr. Widow, has disappeared, and soon new friend Edgar and Wil disappear as well. Are they the lost things that must be found? Readers who enjoy quirky mysteries will fall in love with the clever and relatable Sinister-Winterbottom twins, who will solve the mystery before their aunt shuffles them off to their next adventure. - Copyright 2022 Booklist.
