I didn't like this book. True, I only got a little more than halfway before I refused to read anymore, but, from what I read I found this a bore. The main character isn't very smart, and the only smart character is his sister who wants to become a criminal mastermind. I think this is okay for kids age 9+.
I cant say, by reading this book, but I did read an earlier book by this author and it put way, way, way, way to much stress on the reader because the protagonist suddenly had a huge secret (he found a whole bunch of money) and he was frightened with what to do with it. He was presured by his siblings to use it. It was called "millions" YAWN! PLEASE DONT LET KIDS UNDER THE AGE OF 9 READ HIS STUFF, TOO MUCH PRESSURE!
