The Grave Robbers Secret by Anna Myers

Robby Hare despises grave robbing more than anything. All he can think of is the day when he can finally escape, but sadly, he isn't brave enough to actually run away. His only enjoyment is spending time with their other boarder, a kindly Miss Stone. However, Robby knows Miss Stone won't live forever, and that makes Robby all the more depressed. Luckily for him, a wealthy man rents out two rooms in his family's boarding house, and that is seemingly the end of Robby's troubles. Unfortunately, Burke and his daughter are just the beginning of all his troubles.

This book is geared more towards younger children, this book is spell-binding, and older children will also enjoy this suspenseful story. The plot is a bit slow at times, but all in all, the story flows well. This book, however, is not for the faint of heart, as some scenes during the grave robbing can get a bit gruesome. While it is a bit gruesome, this book is still acceptable for younger kids. I couldn't put this book down, and I highly recommended it to anyone who enjoys a fast paced novel.
