Three years ago, Myrtle Donaldson, a bookkeeper, was accused of embezzlement. She was later found murdered in her own home. The crime was never solved. Thirteen-year-old Logan Forbes is convinced that Myrtle was innocent of the crime and is bound and determined to prove her innocence. Awarded the 2010 Edgar Award for Best Juvenile Fiction, Closed for the Season is a fast-paced and fairly suspenseful read, and is especially recommended for readers in grades five through eight.
