I looked over the edge of the ravine to see somebody there, helpless, barely moving. She lifted her head to look at me and I fled, stumbling, back to my room in Mr. Thiel's house. Something had followed me there. Something, somebody, tall and dark, wrapped in a cloak, able to move soundlessly through the house. - from The Callender Papers

Jean Wainwright, ward of Wainwright Academy's strict but affectionate headmistress, Miss Constance, was quite unprepared for the strange happenings of that memorable summer, 1894. The school's most generous patron, Mr. Daniel Thiel, had written requesting that a young girl be sent from the school to his home in Marlborough. The lucky girl was to spend the summer sorting through the memorabilia associated with Thiel's late wife Irene, and her wealthy family, the Callenders. Jean, fascinated by the stories her aunt has told her about the flamboyant Callender family, accepts the challenge. But she takes an immediate dislike to her sullen new employer and is certain he is hiding something. Think carefully! has been the guiding principle of Jean's upbringing. But is careful thought enough to protect her from the hidden secrets in the Callender Papers?

    " One of the best books I've ever read. I'm amazed at how Ms. Voigt can change her writing style so completely from book to book. This novel has all the beautiful, lilting characteristics of the classics, without the excess description or terribly antiquated terms. A modern "classic" "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ellie | 2/1/2014

    " A fun story with some interesting twists. An easy read that was just a good story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leah | 1/25/2014

    " I read this in my teen years as well and really liked it, although not as much as Jackaroo. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeanette | 1/23/2014

    " Good book. I really like this author but it was really predictable. The plot is very interesting, just don't expect anything novel. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Becky | 1/17/2014

    " Again, read as an 8th grade student for the YSU English festival. I enjoyed the mystery. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lil | 1/11/2014

    " This is an awesome mystery! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ron Christiansen | 1/4/2014

    " Voigt rarely disappoints. Good little historical mystery of sorts with a fairly complex plot for a children's book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessica | 12/26/2013

    " Clean and easy. Too young and predictable. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Catherine | 12/19/2013

    " I enjoyed this book, but I found it a bit predictable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joanne Chan | 11/18/2013

    " Such junior high school nostalgia. I hope I'll remember to read this when I'm 50 or 60 and just sit there and smile and remember how we were in B10 and I was in the inner U of the classroom in the third seat from the row facing the windows. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Deb | 8/29/2013

    " A little bit of mystery in a historical setting written for youth "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily | 7/28/2013

    " I read this book when I was younger, and I re-read it over the last couple weeks while my students were reading. It's a wonderfully-written mystery, even if the main character sounds a little stuffy. I think it's a good read for young adults (and anyone) who like historical fiction. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chelsea | 4/13/2013

    " My mom found this on her shelves and recommended it. Cute and fun story. Perfect to read while nursing with constant interruptions at home. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Liz Gibbs | 3/22/2013

    " I read this years ago and it sounded so good that I thought I'd read it again. I was disappointed that the girl didn't actually go back into the past. She just discovers some family secrets- and secrets about herself- while sorting papers for a "family friend". "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ariana | 8/21/2012

    " this book was kind of freaky but i enjoyed it a lot! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Diana | 2/12/2012

    " intresting book a little wiord but still captures ones mind. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kari | 1/15/2012

    " Oh I like this book! Really surprising if you just read without trying to figure it out before the end. Happy ending. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brett | 12/31/2011

    " I teach school and this is a great period piece. It is a great mystery and every student I have suggested it for loves it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chazzi | 12/8/2011

    " Very enjoyable read with good plot twists. Lead character has a head on her shoulders and takes time to think. A true puzzle solving mystery using thought and research. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stephanie A. | 9/1/2011

    " Not the most exciting story ever, but a mystery that intrigues enough for one read-through. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Etta Mcquade | 5/14/2011

    " Interesting book, but I liked some of her other books better. Still worth reading. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nancy | 4/27/2009

    " More of a children's/young teen's book but I enjoyed it nonetheless. Not much of a mystery (if you're an adult reading the book). I knew the answer the whole time but it was "interesting" how they played it out.

    Not too bad. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Becky | 2/11/2009

    " This was another one of the books I'm reading in my rediscovery of Voigt.

    This was a pretty stable mystery, but I'm thinking I would have enjoyed more as a tween - especially since I had it figured out before half way through ;) "
