    Exciting!  Adventurous!  Funny!  All words to describe the new book by Brian Wells.  What makes it more amazing is that it's also Christian.  And it's backed by the several Christian Homeschool associations, and other Christian education associations.  So when I received this book, for pre-teen to teens, I was excited because it meant my kids would have a good quality adventure to read. 
   I allowed my 12 year old daughter to read it.  So for this review, I'm going to interview her.
What did you think about the front cover of this book?
   -I liked it. It made me want to read it.
Overall, how did you like the story?
   -I liked it very much because it was exciting, funny, and awesome.
Was it easy or hard to read?
   -Easy.
What was the basic storyline?
   -Bad agency broke into a museum where some kids were having a school sleepover. They were there to steal Abraham Lincoln's hat and gloves.  So Jake and his friends had to protect the museum.
Were there any twist in the storyline?
   -Yes, lots of them
Would read another one by this author?
   -Yes
   There you have it.  From the mouth of the ones it was written for.  A great book with actual historical facts.  Not only that, but it was actually written using the most common vocabulary words from these particular grades.  So this is more than just a story and an adventure, it's a history and English lesson, too. 
   Hope you enjoyed this review and that it was helpful! 

God Bless,

Marcus
