Watson, Jude Mission Titanic (The 39 Clues Double Cross #1) 235 pgs. Scholastic, 2015 $16.99 Content: Language: G (0 swears); Mature Content: PG Violence: PG
Even though he is young Ian Kabra is head of the Cahills. He wields a ton of power and he is capable of big mistakes as well. A mystery person is challenging him to stop re-creations of four of history’s greatest disasters, in this book it’s the sinking of the Titanic. Ian decides to seek out Amy and Dan in hopes they can all work together to stop this disaster.
This book felt like stepping into a spy movie for growups, halfway through. I thought it was heavy,un-interesting and had to force myself to read it. Its odd because the kids are really grownup, so why even pretend? I would say that unless you have read other 39 clues, this book should wait. It’s not a read alone.
