One thing that's hard to do with a long-running, many-authored series is keep things fresh -- but Eliot Schrefer (National Book Award finalist for Endangered) doesn't phone it in. By the sixth book, usually the big-name authors have all jumped ship, and, especially with a series such as this one and 39 Clues, publishers know they've hooked readers with the characters and the multimedia extras and can rest on their laurels. 

This may actually be the best in the series yet. Rise and Fall is the right balance of high action, character development (Meilin's struggle is particularly poignant), and surprises. The twist at the end will definitely keep Spirit Animal fans reading.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
