This is the best book in the series yet!!!!!!

With mysteries unfolding, plot lines twisting, and secrets unveiling, Shatterproof will keep you in suspense until the very end. Dan and Amy are thrown into the middle of it all again, and this time they're traveling to Timbuktu. With the help from some Timbuktian friends, they must execute bizarre ransoms, thefts, and heists. But with the Vespers' spies everywhere, how can they get all of this done?

I absotively-posolutly can not WAIT for the next book in the series! This may be the biggest cliff-hanger so far! Roland Smith has outdone himself! Shatterproof is such a thriller, that it gave me goosebumps! LITERALLY!

There are a few ups and lots of downs in this book. Betrayal, murder, and sacrifice doesn't even begin to cover it all. :( WHY!?!?!?!?! I am sorry to say that one of the hostages does not make it.(?) Or does he/she? I will give you one clue with the flip of a coin....

Heads.

Scholastic Books sent me the above book for review purposes. It will allow me to keep the book. I have no other connection to and have received no other compensation from Scholastic.

First of all, i would like to say that this review does not contain spoilers.

Personally, I think that Roland Smith should never write another 39 clues book again. I HATE his writing style. I didn't even think that I was reading a 39 clues book at first! The plot was very cliche and required little creative effort (Im hoping that there was an authors meeting with all the authors in the series to plan out the books and he got stuck with the worst plot). He made all of the scenes that should have been packed with action dull and predictable. It also seemed like he changed some of characters! He made Amy seem clueless, and emotional; but luckily stayed true to Dan's character. He then went and I personally think, COMPLETELY changed Jake. I also HATED HATED HATED HATED how he explained and foreshadowed Amy and Jake's complecated relationship status: friend or boyfriend? He made it so awkward and I found it insulting how dumbed down he made Amy appear. Im so mad that I spent $10 on this book! Get Rick Riordan or Margaret Haddix, but NOT Roland Smith!!!

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful A Kid's Review on June 7, 2013
Format: Hardcover
WARNING: THIS REVEIW CONTAINS MANY SPOILERS

This book is garbage. I have three reasons on why I HATE it.

1. Two words: Roland Smith
Roland ruined the book. If it were done by Rick Riordan, Gordan Korman, or at least a better author, I would have enjoyed it. He just made events so dark and gloomy.

2. Death
The death of some characters makes this book feel like a soap opra. First of all, Pheonix supposedly dies. Then, when you think no one will die any more, Erasmus dies. Finally, the ray of sunshine and street slang, Jonah, kills Luna one paragraph after! Why the bloodfest?

3. Why the title and events?
The books title is "Shatterproof". It was named after the fact that in the beginning, Dan, Amy, Atticus, and Jake try to snatch the Golden Jubilee, a priceless gem. The majority of the book was about the gang trying to find the 'Apology'. NOTHING ABOUT THE 'APOLOGY' HAS TO DO WITH BEING A JEWEL! IT'S SALT! Why did Roland even mention the Jubilee anyways? Why did he name the book Shatterproof? Beats me.

I didn't even like the idea of a Cahills vs. Vespers spinoff, but the first three were good. This book is not for beginners of the series. Save your money.

As an educator, I want to know what my students were reading at home. I often purchase a teen book, and after reading it, pass it on to my own kids and grandkids. I like this author and have read most of his books and series. Thisbook will keep the young minds trying to figure what comes next.

I love the 39 clues! It's one of my fav series.. but this one.. I honestly didn't like! It seemed different, and the language. Two cuss words.. where is the need in that?! I still love this series and am eagerly awaiting the next one, but this is not one of my favorites.

By Haxxan Dreams on December 6, 2014
Format: Hardcover
My son picked out this book for AR, and we slogged through it page by page. This book was a chore to read. The author's writing is fine (sound sentences, etc.), but the story construction is jarring and poorly paced. The story plods along, barely scraping the surface of anyone's personality while continually heaping in more and more characters until it's impossible to care about any of them. Add to that, the settings leap about from country to country with very little transition to orient the reader. The plot is written similarly. The story starts off revolving around a jewel, and then it takes a sharp left turn into a confusing quest for an "apology" manuscript. We read Shatterproof together -- the only way I could get my kid to finish it -- but sadly, we didn't enjoy this book at all.
