6. Nixie’s Song by Tony DiTerlizzi and Holly Black Beyond the Spiderwick Chronicles

            In the first book of this new J-Level series, Tony DiTerlizzi and Holly Black go beyond the Spiderwick Chronicles to tell the tale of Laurie and Nick Vargas.  Laurie Vargas is Nick’s new stepsister.  When she takes over his room she brings along her copy of Arthur Spiderwick’s field guide to the fantastical world around you.  Nick thinks she’s lame until he finds a body he recognizes from the guide and the two team up.  He and Laurie help save a nixie who was separated from her sisters when a troll got angry and attacked the nixies.  The mystery continues as Nick and Laurie are tasked with finding the nixie’s sisters and trying to stay alive. Along the way they meet Jared Grace (from the original Spiderwick Chronicles) who decides to help them defeat their troll.
