The Name of This Book Is Secret (Secret #1)
This is the story of a secret. A secret so big and dangerous that even the story itself is a secret. To find out what it is, you have to risk everything. Self-described survivalist Cass sees potential disaster everywhere, so no one believes her when a classmate is kidnapped by the dazzling but dangerous Dr L and Ms Mauvais. No one except super-talkative misfit Max-Ernest. Cass and Max team up to solve the mystery of the magician's notebook and the Symphony of Smells, discover a secret lost to the ages, and rescue Ben before his brain is sucked out through a straw.
'It's very exciting and funny, but beware - once you start reading, you can't stop.' Louis (age 9)'I loved the original characters, and the very alternative, out-there plot of the story ... a great book with a twisting, turning plot ... Rivals the formidable Harry Potter and better than Lemony Snicket ... exciting and immersive.' Cam (age 12)'A mysterious, funny book ... has great descriptions, you feel like you're at the Midnight Sun.' Alexandra, 11'Once I picked it up, I couldn't stop!' Sharon, 11'BRILLIANT! I did everything reading it.' Thursday, 10
