Memo to guys: Smart is cool. Also, be nice to your sister. Those are two important lessons, refreshingly not delivered with a cafeteria lady’s heavy hand, in N.L. Eskeland’s “Erin Brockovich meets Michael Crichton” thriller for the preteen set, Menace in the Walls, a fictional account of a true and controversial medical horror story from the 1990s.

Menace in the Walls is based on a true story about a mysterious mold that hit the Cleveland area in the 1990’s. The author is able to include science along with medical information in her stories that is also educational to the reader. This book gets 4 hearts.

'Menace in the Walls' by Dr. N.L.Eskeland is a short novel dealing with the adventures of a 13-year old boy Joshua Keegan and his young sister Kelley. Based on a real-life incident but not sacrificing the thrills of a mystery novel, the book manages the double duty of entertaining and educating the young reader in Science and Scientific Investigation.

Joshua Keegan and his sister Kelley are typical kids who bicker among themselves, but come together when need be. This is a book sure to tickle the fancy of both boys and girls in the classroom. A must have for the middle grade student. Happy to recommend.

N.L. Eskeland masterfully weaves the high tension energy of a mystery into the marvelous world of molds and molecules. This engaging tale creates a thirst for further scientific study in all who read it!
