"Chicago Bound is a powerful new Jake McGreevy novel. . . . Like a compelling musical piece, Chicago Bound opens with an interesting promise of mystery and moves quickly and solidly to a crescendo of cat-and-mouse moves between Jake and his friends and unknown assailants who are committed to hiding the truth. Readers will be fascinated to the end - and surprised by an ending which blends an art history investigation, a mother and son's lasting connections, and commitments between good friends."
--Diane Donovan, Senior eBook Reviewer, Midwest Book Review
"Having spent many years searching for Mary Cassatt's 1893 mural done for Chicago's World's Fair, I was delighted to encounter Chicago Bound in which the young Jake and his pals discover that Jake's mother was murdered in her own hunt for the mural. Tracking down the killer, and the Cassatt painting, takes the teenagers on a thrill-packed adventure from the Art Institute of Chicago to the grand finale in, of all places, a retirement home. Chicago Bound is loving and eventful, and most of all a great read." --Sally Webster, author of Eve's Daughter: Modern Woman, a Mural by Mary Cassatt
☆☆☆☆☆ "Sean Vogel's preteen adventure mystery is action-packed and highly entertaining. . . . Art, mystery, music, humor, and adventure--Chicago Bound has it all. . . . This is a grand read." --Jack Magnus for Readers' Favorite

The deets: Once again, my Netgalley mania struck! Although this is the 2nd book in the series, I must have liked the title so much I requested it anyway (or I was dumb enough to not notice it was the second book. It wouldn't be the first time). And I am so glad I did! There is just so much to enjoy about this book. While some might find it too cutesy for their taste, I thought it was really heart warming. And any time it skewed towards any suspicious looks from me, the author immediately put in a lot of details that really made a difference. For example there's a scene in the book that plays out very much like Home Alone with all sorts of home made contraptions to stall the villains. Just as I was about to roll my eyes out how naive and unlikely to succeed in the real world this plan was, Jake detailed an actually very plausible plan. And it had all the fun you got from Home Alone!
In general it was just so clear that the author had done his research. And there's just so many interesting things in this book!Read more ›
Chicago Bound is about two mysteries; Jake's mother went missing years before on a trip to Chicago and a masterpiece is missing. Jake and his three friends go on an adventure to solve both mysteries. The novel is fast paced, fun and the kids have a great time on their adventure. The creativity of youth and their excitement for life comes through loud and clear for a great book for young adults.
Overall, I think this book was AMAZING!!! :) I hope there is more in the future.
To people who like mysteries and art, this is the book for you! I highly reccomend it.
