This is the first book in a fun new series by Peter Lerangis, author of the Watchers series, which I enjoyed reading when it first came out.

I read this book to my son who is 8-1/2. He likes spy stories, movies and the like. This was a great book, easy enough for him to follow, funny, and very engaging. He always asked to read one more chapter.

We read it fairly slowly because I work full time and also have a bouncy two-year old. He could have read it himself but I was enjoying it so much that I wanted to read it with him.

We are definately looking forward to book #2 and eagerly awaiting the publish dates of #3 and #4. Go Evie & Andrew!

This book made us think and gave us things to wonder about after we had stopped reading for the evening. "What do you think will happen next?" Definately read this book.

I ordered this book because it looked interesting to me and seemed to be a good book for my 9 year old son who hates to read. He picked it to read for a book report, so we read it together. What an awesome book! For the first time I saw his interest in reading kindled and he was beginning to understand my facination with reading! I just ordered the other book and pre-ordered the two that are not out yet! I can't wait to get the books to finish reading about Andrew and Evie with my son.

Twins Andrew and Evie Wall haven't seen their mom in almost a year -- they woke up on last November 11th, their eleventh birthday, to find a note from her saying that she had to go into hiding. They expected her to return -- after all, she's a spy, and spies have to disappear sometimes -- but she never did. Now Andrew, Evie, and their dad have started a new life in a small town in Connecticut. But just as they are getting settled in, their life is disrupted again by the arrival of a mysterious package sent to them by their mom. Now the twins must decode the contents of the package and find out what their mom is trying to tell them before it's too late.

This is the first book in a fun new series by Peter Lerangis, author of the Watchers series, which I enjoyed reading when it first came out. Kids who enjoy adventure, mystery, and spy stories are sure to like this book, and will enjoy trying to solve the puzzles Andrew and Evie encounter. The next two books in this series are good as well, and readers will want to read them right away due to the cliffhanger ending of this book.

Format: Paperback
For 12-year-old kids Andrew and Evie moving is a way of life. Their dad in the military and their mom is always gone for her work at a business. They don't know where their mom works and she will never tell them. Most of the time she is never home, but at work. Then one day they move to a new house again and meet their knew neighbor. Mrs. Digitalis. They find out that Mrs. Digitalis knows more about there mom then them, and works for the same company as their mom. They learn more about their mom from her and a few days later they receive a package from an address and find a few normal objects in the box. Then they realize that the stuff in the box were not ordinary but spy tools. They learn things from Mrs. Digitalis and crack some codes to find out where their mom is. In the end they end up moving once again.

I liked this book because it had real codes in it and they weren't easy codes to figure out. Clues lead to more clues that led to more clues that led to the answers in witch you have to use your brain to crack. It also has many cliffhangers so if you read 1 chapter you always want to read another chapter. I also liked this book because it is a mystery book and I usually like mystery books.

My favorite part in the book is when they get the key that opens anything. They get a box full of regular things. Or though they thought but, they realize that everything in the box isn't what it seams and that a key in the box can open any door! Imagine if you had that key you could open anything in the world that had a lock. All the locks would be useless if a bully stole anything you could get it back if it had a key hole!

My 10 year old son picked this book out at the Scholastic book fair at school. We read the book together and could not put it down. Every night he would say, just one more chapter! I don't get into mysteries but this was really well written and even got me into it. My son loved it and immediately started asking for the next book in the series.

I bought this book for my 8-year-old daughter. I started reading it aloud to her and got into it myself. It may be a bit too advanced for her, but I really enjoyed it and finished it on my own. There is fun code breaking, chase scenes and spying by two witty kids. It's a believable plot. I'd guess that an 11-year-old would love it - boy or girl!

Best book I've ever read. I couldn't stop reading. Very easy to follow. Very intense. I liked decoding the messages myself. I can't wait to read the rest of the series.
