  1. Suspenseful story with strong characters and a vivid setting in Louisiana bayou country. Shelby is a strong character as is her mysterious and fascinating mother Mirage, and there was some strong and beautiful imagery. But the plot played out somewhat predictably. I don't see it winning the Newbery, but I would definitely recommend it to kids looking for a tale of suspense. I think readers who enjoy Mary Downing Hahn would enjoy Circle of Secrets.
