"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

The adventure is a good read, the characters interesting and I especially liked that we learned about the limitations placed on women at that time in history and the lack of educational opportunities beyond sixth grade.
Rose is different from other girls in her area. She has bigger dreams for her future.
Life living in a hotel on a main street is much more exciting than living on a farm.
I liked the tension build up to meeting the undertaker and how different it was than Jonathan expected. I like how the "kids" approached solving the mystery as well as, or perhaps more intelligently, than the adults.
I would recommend this book to young readers age ten and above but older readers will also enjoy it.
I accepted a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
I thought the pacing was nice and the writing was great. The town the characters live in is a very old town and a small one at that. It was the type of town where news gets around before you even finish forming a thought about it. It was interesting to get some history on the town even though I felt like there wasn't quite enough for me personally. It isn't a fast-paced mystery novel but I thought it was fast enough to keep the story moving without dragging too much or feeling a bit boring.
Overall, I just enjoyed this book and I liked where it was heading. I think it's a fun story about two kids conducting their own investigation and searching for the real criminal and piecing together why their brother was the target and who would want to hurt the family. The book reminded me a bit of Theodore Boone which is one of my favorite series so I think anyone who loves a mystery would really enjoy this book.
The reason why I didn't give this book a five-star rating is because while I really liked the story, I just felt like there wasn't enough of a surprise element and it wasn't as suspenseful as I personally like. It didn't have me on the edge of my seat and while the story was nicely written, I didn't find myself overly surprised as the ''plot thickened" as they say when new evidence was discovered to strengthen the case against Rose and Jon's brother being the criminal the town believes he is. It's a nice story, has a lot of potential and I think it's a promising start to the series.
