Book Trends: Reviews of Young Adult and Children Books

Book Trends, a review site for young adult and children books, published several new book reviews this past week. We're presenting here a summary of those in the mystery / suspense category.

Storm Warning by Linda Sue Park. The 9th and penultimate book in The 39 Clues series, recommended for readers aged 10 to 12. Lexile measure: 630L. Reviewed by a 6th grade teacher, who writes, "The storyline is suspenseful, and clues are embedded in the series through a cryptogram of sorts. Readers of all ages will find enjoyment in The 39 Clues series, and Storm Warning is no exception."

Conspiracy 365: August by Gabrielle Lord. The eighth thriller in the Conspiracy 365 series, recommended for readers aged 10 to 12. Lexile measure: 730L. Reviewed by a 6th grade teacher, who writes, "August is one of the most exciting books in the Conspiracy 365 series. Readers know something is up, but we’re only getting ever to slightly closer to an explanation. There are only four more months left for Cal to figure out the conspiracy that surrounds him. Undoubtedly September will be no less exciting."
