My son is seven. He devoured the Harry Potter books, but I had him stop after book five. At that point, I was in a real quandry. I needed a book series that would have an age appropriate story line yet challenge him with vocabulary and reading comprehension without being too taxing. The Secret Series was the perfect solution for my young voracious reader.

This book will appeal to both boys and girls as there are two main characters of each gender. Plus, the girl isn't overly "girly", so she doesn't turn my son off.

The entire series of books has mystery, intrigue, and loads of humor. However, I do recommend starting with book one and reading the subsequent books sequentially.

I love this series as much as my third grader does. In trying to describe this book to others the only words that seem to fit together are intellectually silly. My daughter and I read this book out loud to each other and were in tears when in the early chapters we were busted by the author for doing just that. Keep them coming Bosch!

This book is a part of the Secret series. The writer is very funny and offers a little lot of comedy along with a serious storyline. I read this book to my 9 year old and he loved it. The story is about two kids that find themselves in the middle of a mysterious situation. They have to find a solution on their own. Very interesting story that kept you on the edge of your seat. Highly recommend this series of books.

We purchased the Kindle version initially, but it was too difficult to manipulate since the footnotes which are integral to the story were at the back of each chapter and not on the bottom of each page like in the book. We returned it and purchased the hard copy. My daughter is ten and reads a great deal. Somehow, this series did not appeal to her initially and sat on her bookshelf for more than a year. Once got past the first few chapters, she read them all quickly. They were great fun and a tremendous success.

My kids loved these books and I always make myself read the books before I let them read them to make sure they are ok for consumption. I can honestly say that I did not hate reading them either. The are definitely kiddie so I would recommend for ages 10 -14ish maybe younger if your child is a good reader or older if your child is immature. These books are light action adventures that at times pull at your heart strings and also can make you laugh.
