The Medusa Plot
By Gordon Korman
Ages 8-12 – 224 pages
Published by Scholastic Inc. Release date August 30, 2011
Dan and Amy Cahill are trying to adjust to a “normal” life after finding out they belong to the world’s most powerful family and taking part in a dangerous clue hunt that they had to travel all around the world to complete. They won the race to find the 39 Clues and thought they could return to their lives, but they were wrong!
Seven members of their family disappeared, no they were KIDNAPPED! Kidnapped by an evil group called the Vespers who will stop at nothing to get their hands on the 39 Clue formula. The Vespers are now using Dan and Amy as pawns in their sinister plot. If the Cahill kids don’t do what the Vespers want, the hostages will die! So Dan and Amy are off on another adventure but this time they have help from some other young Cahill family members!
THIS BOOK ROCKS! I am a huge fan of the 39 Clues books and the new series will not disappoint 39 Clues fans! I like how Dan and Amy are working together with some of the other Cahill kids. I think it is cool how Dan and Amy are on another hunt but they have no idea what they are looking for because it is controlled by the Vespers. Gordon Korman wrote one of my favorite books from the original series (“The Emperor’s Code” see my review of the series HERE) and he did an awesome job with this book too! The 39 Clues book are a great series for boys and girls. The Dan and Amy characters are really good. THey act a lot like a regular brother and sister, but they have this cool other life. I have pre-ordered my official copy of the book for when it is released because I want to get the clue cards and continue to play the online game (go to the official website HERE for more information). The online game or online clue hunt is fun and challenging. I like to try to find all of the book clues too.
