About The Mapmaker and the Ghost
So, remember when not all kids books were about teenage wizards and sexy vampires? Well, it turns out that, if you know where to look, you can still find books like that. They got to know each other through the fact that both are in the New York area, and both had their debut middle-grade novels come out this year.

Basil E. The setting is very much our world, and the adventure is on a human scale. In the Mixed-Up Files, a girl and her younger brother run off to the museum, and get caught up in a quest to discover the provenance of a statue.
In Mapmaker, a girl Goldenrod and her younger brother Birch find adventure in the woods at the edge of town, and get caught up in a quest to find a legendary blue rose. For kids, I think, the human scale makes the story directly relatable to their own lives. At least, that seems to be one of the things that our kid loved about the book.
He was nine at the time he first read it, and has reread it multiple times. The concerns that the characters have, about curfews and money and permission to go past a certain point in the street, etc. Of course, as in any good adventure, there are exciting things that happen that go well beyond what most children actually experience. But those events have an emotional impact that derives from the realism of the novel.
I mean, saving the world from the most evil villain of all time is, of course, exciting, but evading the gaze of a security guard can actually be even more emotionally tense and exhilarating, because it is a situation that a young reader can really embody.

The book is appropriate for ages 7 through probably about The main character is a girl, but the novel is strongly gendered, and will be engaging for boys and girls. If you have a son who thinks that they should not read a book like this because it is about a girl, you should definitely buy it, thump him over the head with it, and then watch him enjoy it anyway. As I mentioned, the central quest in the novel is the search for a blue rose that blooms in the woods at the edge of town once every fifty years.
They managed this through genetic engineering, taking a gene from a pansy and inserting it into a rose.
