When I am reading, there are generally two ways to describe me... I either don't put a book down or can't put a book down. Mostly, I don't put it down, whether it is truly holding my attention or not, but every now and then I find that rare book that is excellent and is impossible to stop reading.
When I started The Maze of Bones, the first book in the 39 Clues series, I wasn't sure what to expect. A friend of mine from school had suggested it, so I picked it up while I was at the library. It was fabulous. It is a story of an orphaned brother and sister who's grandmother died. In her will, she left a challenge to the remaining members of her family. The challenge was to search the world in for the result of 39 clues. Once they found the solution to the clues, they would become the most powerful person (or people) in the world. Throughout the rest of the story, the brother and sister are in search of the result of the first clue. I was at the edge of my seat throughout the entire book and checked out the next 5 in the series the next day. :) I would definitely recommend it for elementary students and have already suggested it to a couple of children in my class!
Happy hump day everyone!
