The Humming Room

A Novel Inspired by The Secret Garden

Written by Ellen Potter

Even if you have never read The Secret Garden you will love this book. The Humming Room is based on The Secret Garden, but is updated and lots of fun to read. Roo, our main character, is a troubled 12 year old whose parents have just been killed. She is shipped off to live with her rich uncle who she has never heard of. What she finds there on Cough Island would scare almost anyone, but not Roo. This is a great story with all of the needed ingredients to make it come out wonderful. It has adventure, mystery, ghosts, friendship, love and a great ending. What more could you ask for?
