Kathryn Reiss’ Sweet Miss Honeywell’s Revenge is the story of Zibby Thorne, a twelve-year-old girl who feels supernaturally compelled to buy an antique dollhouse for her birthday, even though she doesn’t event like dolls. The dollhouse just seems unusual at first, but then Zibby hears strange noises coming from inside and thinks the dolls are moving around by themselves. Zibby tries to forget about the dollhouse and tries several times to get rid of it, but it always returns to her room. Even more frightening, the games played in the dollhouse start to come true in real life, only in bizarre kinds of ways. Zibby is sure that one particularly creepy doll in a gray dress is somehow responsible for the trouble. She discovers the doll is controlled by the spirit of "sweet" Miss Honeywell, a vengeful governess who seeks to control Zibby and her friends from beyond the grave. Can Zibby and her friends figure out why Miss Honeywell is haunting the dollhouse? Will they be able to find a way to stop Miss Honeywell before her wrath becomes deadly? Read Sweet Miss Honeywell’s Revenge to solve the mystery. (Prepared by: Brandy Caroway, SCASL Junior Book Awards)
