Marianna Mestre: Nothing’s As It Seems (Volume 1)


This middle-grade, young adult novel is narrated by Marianna, a precocious and inquisitive 12-year-old, whose love for solving mysteries is challenged by the distraction of middle-school drama. Raised by a single attorney father since she was six, Marianna prides herself on being a loner, relying only on the characters of books for friendships. That is until she meets Colin and Michael, two brothers who join Marianna on her detective escapades. Marianna also befriends Mrs. Henderson, a client of her father’s, who is suspected of murder and plagued with Alzheimer’€s. This unexpected and unconventional friendship with Mrs. Henderson opens Marianna’€s eyes to the realization that things are not always as they seem: Perceptions are subjective. Stereotypes can be misleading. And the ones who are hardest to love are often the ones who need love the most.
