Description
"Some people won't believe any of this story. You might be one of them. But every single word is true. Tony DiMarco does catch a murderer, solve a mystery, and find a treasure--all in the first few days after he moves, unexpectedly, to 13 Hangmen's Court in Boston. The fact that he also turns thirteen at the same time is not a coincidence." So begins the story of Tony and his friends--five 13-year-old boys, all of whom are living in the same house in the same attic bedroom but at different times in history! None are ghosts, all are flesh and blood, and somehow all have come together in the attic room, visible only to one another. And all are somehow linked to a murder, a mystery, and a treasure. Praise for 13 Hangmen "Fascinating tale. Ghostly fun in old Boston." -- Kirkus Reviews "The book's design nicely differentiates Tony's story, set in 2009, from the past narratives. Recommend this engaging historical mystery to readers who devoured Dan Gutman's Baseball Card Adventures series and are ready for a longer, more complex adventure. " -- Booklist "Corriveau merrily ransacks historical episodes and figures (e.g., the Great Molasses Flood, the Underground Railroad, Boston mayor John F. "Honey Fitz" Fitzgerald) and spins, twists, and manipulates their stories to advance the DiMarco family mystery. The result is a novel that agilely balances humor and tension." -- The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books "This is an exceptionally good story, with a wry, humorous tone that has particular boy appeal. It covers baseball, history, sibling rivalry, girls, and mystery, and folds in the space-time continuum." -- School Library Journal
