The Nest, by Kenneth Oppel, is an original and suspenseful psychological thriller written for middle-grade students. Put this on the "must read" list for fans of Neil Gaiman's Coraline.
Steve has always struggled with anxiety. However, since his baby brother was born with a congenital defect he’s become even more anxious. Then Steve starts having strange dreams about the wasps who are building a nest outside his house. Are they real or imagined? Can they actually fix the baby like they promise? This quiet yet emotionally haunting, beautifully written book has won numerous awards, including the Caldecott Award for Jon Klassen's sparse, moving illustrations.
