QuaranTEEN Book Review by Thomas

Crime Travelers Book 1: Brainwashed by Paul Aertker is rated five out of five stars.

Lucas Benes, 13 years is a crime fighting super spy! Living in a hotel and being hotel-schooled is very boring. That all changes the day he is on a roof and sees a abandoned baby in a shopping cart.

He is kidnapped but then strangely is set free. Lucas, his sister Astride and three of there friends travel to Paris in France, to try and stop the villainous Siba Gunnero, and her horrible Good Company. Will they be able to stop the kidnapping and brainwashing or will they fall victims themselves?!?!?!

I thought this was a outstanding book! I love books with super spy action and adventure. This book had both. This book is great for ALL ages. Also all ages will love it. ( ALL AGES). It has a perfect combination of spy, action, adventure, mystery, comedy, teenager(ish) power with a healthy dose of French. I recommend this book for anuone and everyone. #GreatBook!

Teen Book Review: Shadowlands

Shadowlands Series by Kate Brian:

After a teacher she admired turns a serial killer and comes after her, Rory Miller and her family move to an FBI secured home in a place called Juniper Landing. However, this new place has its own mysteries:┬áthe fog-soaked island town lacks phone and Internet service, and a group of powerful young locals is overly focused on Rory, and when people from the town go missing, others don’t seem to care.

Her sister Darcy and her become friends with a group of exotic teenagers, and spend their time partying and having fun, until one of their new friends goes missing. This series is about love and loss, and the importance of family and relationships, a definite must read for lovers of mystery and romance!
