-

Effie knew she wasn’t the same after her accident but didn’t realize how different she had become until her family vacation. When Effie begins to hear whispers and have visions things get really strange! Effie finds a love letter to her mother that isn’t from her father! A strange mystery girl seems to follow her wherever she goes but vanishes before Effie can confront her. Even the rides in the amusement park begin to speak to her! Effie wonders; is she going crazy? Are all the things that are happening trying to tell her something?

Effie enlists the aide of her detective brother, Jimmy, along with her long time Crystal Beach buddies Lydia and her mischievous little brother Sniff. The friends race through the old amusement park to try and find answers while trying to avoid a local bully. As their investigation deepens Effie begins to be haunted by dreams that seem to hold the key to everything that is happening. When the investigation falters Effie struggles to overcome self-doubt and the realization that her idyllic vacation spot isn’t what it seems to be. Trying not to lose faith, Effie embraces her new abilities hoping the whispers and signs will lead her and her friends to the answers they need to save her family and discover the identity of the mystery girl.

REVIEWS
-

The plot of Mystic of the Midway sounds like a lot fun for a reader of that age. […] It’s going to be a wonderful conversation piece for any family that is familiar with the amusement park.

- Project Best Life, Project Best Life

“It’s great to see a book based on a regional (albeit long gone) destination, which is directed towards a younger reading audience (without being a children’s book). The plot of Mystic of the Midway sounds like a lot fun for a reader of that age. After all, a fictional book, based on a very real place and time along this region’s own storyline, adds to the atmospheric allure. It’s going to be a wonderful conversation piece for any family that is familiar with the amusement park.” 

- Buffalo Rising

“Blair wanted to write a book that his children could enjoy. He watched how they reacted to the stories he would read them and used their feedback for the research of his own book.” 

- The Post

“The third-person narration tends toward the awkward and didactic; readers who stay the course will enjoy the suspense and closure.” 

- Kirkus
