Synopsis

The Secret of the world won’t be secret much longer as long as Cass, Max-Ernest, and Yo-Yoji are on the case. The motley group of kids travels around the world in search for the unknown Secret that is destined to be revealed by someone in Cass’ family line. Just like any good search for a powerful and hidden object, they encounter villains, accomplices, and tricksters along the way. At home and school they are slightly odd kids, but when searching for the Secret they are brilliant and determined. They don’t know what the Secret will hold, but they are willing to put their lives on the line to find out. In this final book of the series, they find that a famous traveling mummy exhibit is the next clue to the case.

Pros

Unique writing style, author interjects and comments at times as if he is watching the story unfold from an unseen vantage point

Cons

Some dabbling with spirituality and magic

***

I love to read but don’t love reading books that have questionable themes. I want to make sure that I’m a discerning reader and choose books that will benefit me because, as James Bryce said, “The worth of a book is measured by what you can take away from it.”

Since I have found some books that I enjoyed reading, I would like to pass them on to you. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did. I include some non-Christian books not because I agree with them, but rather I know that many Christian teenage girls read these books and need to think biblically as they do.

Lastly, if you click on my link to purchase any book I review, the proceeds go to VisionNationals.org to help fund an orphanage and church planting in India. It’s run by Pastor Arjuna, whom I have known since childhood and has my favorite Coloradoite on staff, my friend Lauren. For more information, please visit VisionNationals.org.
