The Mostly True Story of Jack A Novel Kelly Barnhill Little, Brown: 323 pp., $16.99, ages 8 and up Fantastical middle-grade mysteries have long been populated with protagonists confronted with evildoing and tasked with righting wrongs. A negligent parent is par for the course, as are the usual archetypal go-tos of modern storytelling — witches and werewolves. But "The Mostly True Story of Jack" offers a unique opponent — a soul-snatching "Lady" who lives in a "world under the world," opening up chasms in Iowa cornfields and gobbling down kids.

He died three days later. At first blush, it seemed like there might be a logical successor to Kelly's seat.
