About the Author

Pseudonymous Bosch is a pseudonym, or as he would prefer to call it (because he is very pretentious), a nom de plume. Unfortunately, for reasons he cannot disclose, but which should be obvious to anyone foolhardy enough to read his book, he cannot tell you his real name. But he admits he has a deep-seated fear of mayonnaise.

Gold Star Award Winner!

Cass is back, and now she might be in grave danger. She's swallowed the dreaded Time Traveling Chocolate and is stuck in the past. To make matters worse, she's disoriented, confused, and not sure who or where she is. With the help of a long-lost relative, she'll try and fight her way back to the present.

Meanwhile, in the present, Cass is in the hospital in a coma. Max-Ernest and Yo-Yogi are worried sick about her and aren't sure what is causing her condition.

Two races against time, life and death on the line, crucial clues that could be vital to the present. Can Max-Ernest and Yo-Yogi put the pieces of the puzzle together in time to save Cass? Can Cass find both herself and her way back to the present?

An action-packed adventure for reluctant readers. The characters are well-developed, and the plot is complex and well-crafted. Those who have read the first three books in the series who enjoy adventure, action, and mystery tales will enjoy this continuation in THIS ISN'T WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE.

I bought this book after reading the ones before it and I couldn't wait for it to come!! The author keeps you hanging on every page and it is full of adventure and mystery. I really like this book and I think others (adult or child) of either male or female will love it. The book came alot faster than I expected it to and didn't cost too much. When I read this isn't what it looks like I really enjoyed it mostly the parts when the author talks directly to you at a break point.

I read this directly after reading the third one, which is not something I usually do. When I read a series I like to read two or more books in between so that I don’t feel the books get too same-y. But this time I really wanted to keep reading this mystery series seeing as the previous book ended on such a cliffhanger.

Our familiar trio of Cassandra, Max-Ernest and Yo-Yoji return in this book with some new characters in tow, like Daniel-Not-Danielle, the Glob, the Jester and Anastasia as well. Cassandra is in grave danger, and Max-Ernest must save her before it’s too late. While Cass is racing through time, Max-Ernest is racing against it. Either way, the past and present (and even future) all play together to unlock bits of the mystery continued from the previous book.

What I liked so much about this book was that it had a lot of focus from Max-Ernest’s perspective, even though we usually get to see more from Cassandra’s. This is why Max-Ernest became my favourite character. We get to see how much he cares for his friends, how much it hurts to be replaced and also how to deal with separated parents who seem to reattach themselves to each other. Aside from all this, Max-Ernest has his own quirks, like his illness and undying love for chocolate.

I’m going to keep this fairly short because I don’t want to give away any major plot points. But go read this!

this book is of outstanding quality, and it is a big must read. If you do want to read this book, I advise you to read the first three books of the series in order first:
'the name of this book is secret'
'if you're reading this it's too late'
and 'this book is not good for you'
all of which are amazing books to read. If you like fantasy books that make you think, but are fun to read, and have a sense of adventure to it as well, than you have to read this book RIGHT NOW!!!!!!!

I love the Secret series, but I really wasn't sure about this one. I got put off by the medieval times, & thought it wasn't as good as normal... the writing wasn't as sharp, & I could only read a couple of chapters at a time because the way PB wrote it, I kept finding it hard to focus on what I was reading. I think the series work best when Max & Cass are together... doesn't quite work so well with them apart.
