The 39 Clues: One False Note Booktalk

  • Grades: 3–5

Amy and Dan are after the second clue, and they’re sure it’s in Mozart’s music somewhere—but where?

Life has turned into a whirlwind for Amy and Dan Cahill. One moment they’re orphans fighting over the TV remote, the next they find out that they’re members of the most powerful family in the world, and in a race to change it in ways they can’t even imagine. But it’s a race with many risks. High stakes always mean equally high risks.

They found the first clue after exploring Benjamin Franklin’s life. Now they have to find the second clue in Mozart’s music. And they have to find it before any of the other Cahill relatives do. They might be in the lead, but none of the other teams want them to stay there, and will be willing to do anything to get ahead of them.

But only Amy and Dan have a secret diary that belonged to half of another brother-sister pair. Will it give them enough information to find the Mozart clue?

The booktalk was written by Joni Richards Bodart, university professor, librarian, consultant, and internationally known booktalking expert.
