My rating: <a href=”http://www.goodreads.com/review/show/236055504″>5 of 5 stars</a><br /><br />
A page turner from the first page! I could not put it down & am (very) impatiently awaiting the next installment!
<br/>
<br/>As the parent of a teen & 2 tweens, I am always on the lookout for good reads for them. I am <strong>very</strong> picky about the literature I will allow them to read (some may disagree with that, but that’s how *this* Mama works it ;) ) and so, during a friend’s thread on Facebook, wherein parents were debating allowing their kids to read “The Hunger Games” series or not, someone suggested Michael Vey: Prisoner of Cell 25. I am *so* glad they did. The book has <strong>no</strong> cursing, no OMGs or anything like it, very light romance appropriate to middlers & “crushes.” And, though, yes, there is espionage, intrique, etc. the violence isn’t graphic at all. It was adventerous and “spinetingling” without being too dark, scary, or exploring themes too mature or emotionally inaccessible to this age group. The dialogue rang true, and the book was humorous in that snarky kind of way that many teens/tweens can relate to. It reminded me of a mix of Percy Jackson & the Mysterious Benedict Society, with a dash of the 39 Clues.
