Length: 206 Pages

The race heats up and is more dangerous than ever as the hunt for clues continues. Book Six of The 39 Clues series, In Too Deep by Jude Watson, is now in libraries and book stores. This historic and exciting adventure series is entering its second half and heading for a final solution in Book 10, expected to be released in September 2010.

The story has now moved to Australia where the search for clues becomes more than a game—it's a matter of life and death. Siblings Amy and Dan Cahill experience more life-threatening situations than ever before and this time, someone important dies.

As the search for clues continues, Amy and Dan arrive in Sydney, Australia. The danger begins the minute they run into Isabel Kabra, the mother of the two rich kids, Natalie and Ian. Isabel doesn't become their only enemy; the Holts, Alistair Oh, Irina Spasky, and Ian and Natalie are all waiting for the perfect chance to outwit the Cahill kids.

Amy and Dan reunite with their cousin, Uncle Shep. They convince him to help them follow in their parent's footsteps in the Land Down Under. When Shep takes them to the beach to surf, they run into a surprising enemy, the Holt family. Eisenhower tries to drown Dan, who has to struggle for breath and his life.

The more places they visit in Australia, the more danger Dan and Amy face. They encounter deadly spiders and the most poisonous snake in the world, the Taipan. They are almost sent back to Boston and to Social Services by Irina Spasky, who pretends to be a friend, but really just wants Amy and Dan out of the hunt for clues.

In Too Deep is hard to put down once you get started. It has all the traits a good book should have: humor, mystery, and adventure. This one could be the best of all of the The 39 Clues books so far!

    Bobby the Brave (Sometimes)

    by Lisa Yee

    In his last adventure, Bobby Ellis-Chan got stuck to a stinky tree, had underwear attached to his back, and faced down a whole wolfpack of girls. What could be scarier or more humiliating than that?

    Oh, how about playing sports with his football-hero dad ...

    a cat with 27 toes ...

    an asthma attack in public ...

    dancing on stage in the school musical ...

    And the list goes on! Bobby will have to overcome his fears if he's going to come out on top.

    Echo ­ TR

    by Pam Muņoz Ryan

    Music, magic, and a real­life miracle meld in this virtuosic, genre­defying tour de force from storytelling maestro Pam Muņoz Ryan.

    Lost and alone in the forbidden Black Forest, Otto meets three mysterious sisters and suddenly finds himself entwined in a puzzling quest involving a prophecy, a promise, and a harmonica.

    Decades later, Friedrich in Germany, Mike in Pennsylvania, and Ivy in California each become interwoven when the very same harmonica lands in their lives, binding them by an invisible thread of destiny. All the children face daunting challenges: rescuing a father, protecting a brother, holding a family together. How their suspenseful solo stories converge in an orchestral crescendo will resound in your heart long after the last note has been struck.

    Richly imagined and structurally innovative, ECHO pushes the boundaries of form and shows us what is possible in how we tell stories.
