EJ 12 In the Dark

EJ12 was a pleasant surprise. I was expected to be bored or underwhelmed.
Starting with the third book in a series isn't always the best way to get into it. But the easy style and quick re-caps of the important information made this very accessible.

The codes, pictures and diagrams were carefully placed in the chapter so you could decipher them yourself before EJ – lots of fun!


It was well paced and developed age appropriate fears and issues. EJ was given satisfying, modern crimes to solve with modern gadgets and up-to-date technology (think Get Smart and Inspector Gadget). And we could all use an Eco-deco button in our lives - to clean up our messes with an environmentally friendly push of a button!

These books are perfect for 6+ girls (and boys who love gadgets) who are good readers and would be great for the 8+ readers who are struggling a bit with their reading.

I love hearing from you but I understand that blogger can be a frustrating experience for many.
Make sure you're logged into your blogger account or google+ account before writing your comment, otherwise blogger will eat it. I have occasionally found lost comments by hitting the back arrow button.
