The Doldrums and the Helmsley Curse by Nicholas Gannon - ADVISABLE

Gannon, Nicholas The Doldrums and the Helmsley Curse, 344 pages.  HarperCollins, 2017 $18.00.  Language: G(0 swears); Mature Content: G; Violence: G.

Archer Helmsley wants to be a great adventurer, but his parents do everything they can to keep him away from adventure and thrills. To most he is know as a troublemaker. The people he idolizes are his grandparents, who are worldwide known adventurers. But when his grandparents show up on the front door, he knows that he doesn’t have to worry about what his mother and father think anymore.

This book has a very exciting plot that gets more and more complicated with every event. It has very good morals in it. The characters grow and develop throughout the entire book. It is probably the most detailed and expressive book I have ever read. There is no violence, though there are very suspenseful parts. It is very clean and easy to tell what is going on. I would definitely recommend this book to others, though I suggest you read the first book before you read this one.
