I have kids, a husband, a dog, two cars, a garden, we own a house and so have NOT read this book yet. Just as soon as I have FREE time and no laundry, dishes, carpool, routines, traditions, cuddle time, quality time, family dinners, etc. to take care of, I will certainly be sure to read all these books deserving of my attention.
I have read these kinds of books in the past and find them easy to digest. Encapsulated in digital form to allow your brains quick digestion and absorption. I have experienced no negative side effects but for the ones mentioned above and highly recommend you read this book if YOU have the time. Let me know what YOU think and I can post it HERE!
Manufactured in, approved and registered in a facility in USA. This is book is shelf stable at full potency for forever from the manufacture date.
Please know I did the best I could at the time I wrote this and always welcome questions. my time isn't always my own. Thanks for understanding. [...]
I might have given this book three stars if the author had not included this next part of the book. Not only did the six kids survive their island adventure, but they now want to save the US from a nuclear threat (?!) First of all, this seems completrly detached and unrelated to the island part of the book. From what I can tell from the synopsis' of the two other books in this series, the main conflict is about world peace, so I don't really know the point of the whole island adventure...? Second (SPOILER ALERT) the kids actually manage to stop the missle threat from happening by hacking (I repeat, HACKING) into a secure government website and changing the computer codes so the missle is lowered. Then, they BLACKMAIL the enemy government leaders into negotiatig with the US. Not only is this the most unrealistic thing in this book but the authow shows little to no acknowledgement that hacking into government websites is illegal! There is so much more that I could say about this book, but I think you get the picture.
Overall, the first conflict was an interesting idea and I love the idea of kids striving for world peace, but the two topcs didn't merge well, and truthfully, world peace is not something that the kids in this book could fully understand and definitely not something the author could convey in such a short book.
But the story does not end there. These six friends gather together to figure out a solution to a nuclear missile crisis. When an Asian dictatorship threatens to fire a nuclear missile, the teens figure out a way to break into that country's computer system and bribe them into entering peace negotiations to save face. I am sure the world is in for lots more from these indomitable teens in the next two books of the trilogy. This series is targeted for ages nine and older. While the inevitability of the solutions seems too simplistic in some instances, the characters are well-developed, each having strengths and flaws. Middle grade and young adult readers will find much in common with them. Plot is fast paced and I felt compelled to keep reading. Recommended for readers who enjoy adventure stories with clever protagonists and plots containing thought provoking issues.
