Ten top thrilling locations in children’s books

Dark Parties, Sara Grant's first young adult novel, won the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators Crystal Kite Award for Europe. Her new series is Chasing Danger – an action-adventure series for tweens.

One of Grant's top ten thrilling locations in children’s books, as shared at the Guardian:
Revolver by Marcus Sedgwick

The Arctic Circle in 1910 offers the perfect eerie setting for Sedgwick’s psychological thriller. Young Sig Andersson is alone with his father’s frozen corpse and a Colt revolver hidden in the storeroom. What a premise!
