(coming from a thirteen year old) "Here Comes Mr. Trouble" was a fun book that I could not put down. I would have given this ten stars but there were only five allowed. I enjoyed the adventures that Eric encountered ... especially the car chases. I like that there was humor and fun in the book too. It made me want to be a Trouble. I would highly recommend this book. I'm excited to read more about the Trouble family in future books.

Excitement. Mystery. Hawaiian Pizza? "HERE COMES MR. TROUBLE" by Brett Battles is a book not to miss. Just by reading the title, your interest is sparked. Mr. Trouble? Who, or what, is that? From page one you dive into a familiar world, one with many unique surprises that never stop coming. Set in Tobin, Colorado, you follow the journey of two young teenagers, Eric and Maggie, and the Trouble family. Eric, a boy almost 14, begins to have some unexplained troubles. Unexplained, that is, until the Trouble family come along, willing to help him sort out his life. With best friend Maggie at Eric's side, the two of them delve into a world that's more than meets the eye. Their everyday lives will never be the same again, once they accept the services the Trouble family are offering and are exposed to what lies ahead.

I'm a fourteen year old girl and I have to say, reading this book is kind of like wearing your favorite pair of shoes-you can read it again and again and the soles will never wear out. It's the kind of book that makes you stay up until 2:00 AM reading because you just can't stop. "Okay, okay, I'll stop after this chapter...well definitely after this chapter...I can't just stop here..." The reasons you make to yourself not to put the book down can go on and on. One thing I love about the book is how you're constantly wondering what's going to happen next, and how you discover things as the main characters do. You're not outright given all the information, but little by little you eventually puzzle out the big picture. You can make your guesses and have your suspicions, but it's not until the very end that you piece it all together.

An above-normal student and an all-around good kid, Eric can't figure out his recent string of bad luck. The missing homework. The sudden problem with bullies. The strange noises only he can hear. Objects appearing out of thin air. This must involve something more than luck. But what?

Here Comes Mr. Trouble starts off suspenseful and never lets up. Every chapter leaves you hanging. Mr. Battles skillfully spins out a tale, tantalizing us with little bits of information at a time. A hint here. A small suggestion there. I was still writing out questions 40% of the way through the book! At one point, "Eric was angry, and he was annoyed, and he was frustrated." And he blurts out, "I'm tired of no one telling me anything!" I admit, I was reaching the same breaking point when, just in time, Mr. Battles suddenly unleashed some significant, page-turning action.

You see, Eric has taken up with the Trouble family, and their name is no coincidence. But this specially-trained team is dedicated to fighting Makers, the particular breed of evil that suddenly has it in for Eric.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Usually, when I am asked to review a new book, it is someone's first attempt at such an endeavor. And it shows. But Brett Battles has written several books for adults. And it shows. Anticipation, danger, pulse guns, talismans, sleep juice, enforced stupors, car chases and hand to hand combat create enough excitement for any middle-reader thrill seekers out there. All beautifully crafted.

This is certainly a plot-driven story. I identified with Eric easily, always being the good kid myself, but I never felt like I got to know any of the Troubles personally, or even Eric's best friend Maggie.

This is one of the best books I have ever read. I liked how the author made up the whole history of the makers and the makers box. The characters were unique and interesting because they were not ordinary. I enjoyed the book from beginning to end, like a piece of art. The story is an edge of your seat read a real thrill. Easy to read like Pseudonymous Bosch But as suspenseful, awesome and thrilling as Cinda Williams Chima. It has almost the same adventure as Rick Riordan. This book I would recommend to people who like mysteries and adventure.

After receiving this book, my two sons both wanted to read it. They started taking turns after each chapter so that they could each read it and we would have little drama in the house. This book had them both talking about sections with anticipation, and they both were very excited about it. I had asked for a review from each of them:
"I love this book. I can't wait to read the next one. I don't want to give anything away, but I think this is my new favorite series to read. I would tell all of my friends to read it. Grown ups would like it too." --obviously he enjoyed it.
"BUY THIS BOOK! YOU AND YOUR KIDS WONT REGRET IT!"--short, sweet and pretty much sums up his feelings.

I took a turn reading this as well, and I found it very enjoyable and I did not feel like I had to 'dumb down' in order to read it. Well written, keeps you wanting to turn the next page, and the characters are enjoyable and engaging. If you are looking for a book to read, or want to start a new series, this is the one to pick up!

Thanks Mr. Battles.....my boys are wanting to read again!!!
