Courtesy of Teens Read Too,
This review is from: If You're Reading This, It's Too Late (The Secret Series) (Hardcover)
This is a fun book with an interesting narrative. Cass and Max-Ernest are young adults who have recently been involved with a secret society, the details of which are located in the previous book in the series. Although you do miss out on some details of the protagonists, you could read this book without having read the previous installment, THE NAME OF THIS BOOK IS SECRET.
When you read IF YOU'RE READING THIS, IT'S TOO LATE, it is as though you are being told a story by the campfire.
The characters are well-developed, easy to relate to, and have a good sense of humor. Because of the short chapters and common footnotes, I see this as a great book for a reluctant reader. It is easy to pick up where you left off and it takes you down many paths at once, keeping you interested. The footnotes typically add a humorous aspect to an interesting mystery, allowing the reader to venture in a new direction before continuing on with the story.
Overall, I really enjoyed this book. It had a strong storyline with characters that took risks and maintained and created friendships.
