The Cahill siblings Amy and Dan are on their own trying to find the 39 clues that their grandmother described in her will. The scavenger hunt is dangerous enough, but fighting with their extended family as well as the international flavor, makes these fun. ( )

My one issue with this book is that it sells the myth that Marie Antoinette said "Let them eat cake". There is no record of her ever saying that. I love that the series gets kids into history, I just don't want them learning the false history. ( )

Amy and Dan continue on their journey to find clues. In this book they are off to Japan. The two continue on the journey to find clues and battle their family to find out the families secret. ( )

I actually liked this book better than the first in the series. Gordon Korman is a good juvenile author and I've read a few of his other books. Amy and Dan are now off to Japan. It's still a mystery who the man in black is...and it is unclear as to whether he is friend or foe. The next book in the series comes out in March. I'm looking forward to reading it. ( )

This is not actually a review of the book's, just a short commentary on it: for everyone out there who is happy that they/their children are learning a bit of history along the way, a) Marie Antoinette never said "Let them eat cake", it's a misattribution that was corrected years ago, and b)the French word used is actually brioche, not gateau, as the book incorrectly states.

Rant over.

This is a really good book about two kids that are on a dangerous race to find the thirty-nine clues - against their own relatives. No one is about to help Dan and Amy any time soon though, in fact, there are traps around every corner.
This is the second book in the series and is very good!
