I was attracted to this book after seeing it in my local library with the tag line "The Da Vinci Code for kids".
In a nutshell, a secret group of code breakers recruit a group of talented kids to hopefully crack an unbreakable code whilst another group try to stop them.
There's a nice mix of characters, particularly the kids, and the story moves at a fairly speedy pace. The one thing I felt was lacking, however, was any threat to our heroes. The "baddies" aren't particular sinister or menacing (kids book, I know, but you still need danger) and I felt it could have benefitted from a "Silas" type character.
I did enjoy this book and I'll definitely read the next. Just hope there's a little more danger to it.
This has an interesting mix of fact and fiction and has been called the Da Vinci Code for kids, but I think it's much better than that. There were times in reading the Da Vinci Code that my will to continue was tested almost to breaking, whereas here the story runs at a great pace and holds the interest.
It is meant for Young Adult readers but, as an adult, I thoroughly enjoyed it too, so much so I have already put the new one The Orphan of the Flames in my "basket".
I've seen an earlier review that drew a parallel with the hardy boys mysteries which is pretty close - loved those when I was a kid - and this is in the same mould.
My son is a prolific reader and him saying this was good is high praise indeed.
Brody Bray is a girl who lives with her Grandad as her parents aren't there any more. Brody gets told to go to a museum which is in fact a code cracking school which is so secret that even the government doesn't know of its existence. Brody and her friends uncover the case of Professor Vande Seccer. But they don't know someone is out to get them.
I would recommend this book for 10-13 year olds as even though the storyline is fairly simple, it is also very confusing in parts. If you like codes or secret agents in your stories, you will enjoy this.
Review by my 11 year old daughter! (She loved it!)
