Review: One False Note by Gordon Korman

One False Note (The 39 Clues, #2) One False Note by Gordon Korman

My rating 4.0/5.0

Another fun romp following Amy and Dan Cahill as they go on the search created by their grandmother to find the family's fortune. This time they are travelling through Germany, Austria and eventually Venice. These books are full of action and suspense. They are easy, quick reads geared toward kids/young adults, but enjoyable for adults too.

It continues after the children find the first clue in the first book and now they are on the lookout for the next one. Amy and Dan always manage to get by even when you think they won't, but the way is never easy for them.

I love them as characters and enjoyed getting to know them more in this one. The rest of the family is really over the top, but interesting. Gordon Korman does a great job of continuing the series without losing any of the feel of it that was set up in the first book.

I look forward to reading the next installment of this series and my oldest son is begging me to get the first one back from the library so he can read it.

About the Book:

THIS JUST IN! Amy and Dan Cahill were spotted on a train, hot on the trail of one of 39 Clues hidden around the world. BUT WAIT! Police report a break-in at an elite hotel, and the suspects ALSO sound suspiciously like Amy and Dan. UPDATE! Amy and Dan have been seen in a car . . . no, in a speedboat chase . . . and HOLD EVERYTHING! They're being chased by an angry mob?!?

When there's a Clue on the line, anything can happen.

I've been wondering about this series - I haven't tried it yet. Sounds good - I love books where the characters travel to different locations. My sons and I will have to give this one a try! Thanks for the review -
