The Last Crystal
(The Last Crystal Trilogy, Book 3)

by Frances Schoonmaker

Dear Reader,

Winner of the 2019 Agatha Award, Best Middle Grade/Young Adult Mystery, The Last Crystal is a great story nested within an on-going story. Important lessons about inclusion and diversity are seamlessly woven into mystery, intrigue, and the fantasy that kids love.

When they board the L.A. bound Santa Fe Chief, the Harrison children have never heard of The Last Crystal or the magic surrounding it. They’re worried about their father, injured in World War II. Before they’re halfway to L.A., they cross paths with a Nazi spy. One of them is kidnapped. Then, without warning, J.D., Mary Carol, Robert, and Grace are magically drawn off the train into a quest for the Crystal. To get home again, they must cross two tousand miles of wilderness and find the Crystal, with nothing to guide them but their wits, each other, and an old map that only the youngest can read.
