Andrew and Evie aren't initially sure what to make of the package
that arrives at their door soon after they move to a new town. It's
filled with random things--a key, something that looks like a kaleidoscope,
a seed packet, and a cryptic note. But over time, each item takes
on unique importance.
The twins decide to fill the dull weeks before the start of school
by spying on their neighbors. Their first target is their next-door-neighbor.
At first she seems like a run-of-the-mill older lady, but she turns
out to be a retired code specialist. She teaches them to create
and break codes, skills that become important as twins' search for
their mother intensifies.
Evie and Andrew have always wondered what happened to their mother
after she disappeared on their birthday. Now they are starting to
find out . . . and the results are very surprising. Their mother was
into something big, and now the twins are being drawn in as well.
Nobody - not their baby-sitter, not their new school friend, not a
pair of menacing bikers - is who he or she appears to be. But
Evie and Andrew will have to uncover the truth if they ever want to
see their mother again.
It's been almost a full year since Andrew and Evie's mom disappeared,
and the twins are determined to find her. They've been following
her trail, decoding the clues she's left them. And that trail is
drawing them closer to their mother than ever before.
But now the Company is on to the fact that Mom is communicating
with the twins - and they'll do anything to get to her first. The
Company's agents are desperate to intercept Mom's messages. It's
up to Andrew and Evie to stop them - and to find Mom before her
enemies do. Read
Andrew and Evie have found Mom at last. But she had to come out
of hiding to get to the twins, and now the Company is on to her
aliases. There's only one solution: Mom has to go underground again,
and this time, she's bringing Andrew and Evie with her.
The twins are used to moving to new places, so at first taking on
new identities doesn't seem like that big a deal. It's kind of fun,
actually. But soon Andrew and Evie realize they're not just leaving
behind another town -- they're leaving behind themselves, their
personalities. And there's one more thing, too... Pop. Read
