Wisconsin Books for Older Children:

The Westing Game, by Ellen Raskin

This book is set in Milwaukee, in Sunset Towers, on the side of Lake Michigan. Great for reading around the 4th of July, or whenever you need a murder mystery and competition all at the same time (and, truly, did anyone even die?). This book would make a great 5th or 6th grade read, or a 4th grade read aloud. But definitely keep a pen and paper handy so you can draw the entire layout of the Westing Game’s apartment layout.
