If You're Reading This, It's Too Late

If You’re Reading This, It’s Too Late
by Pseudonymous Bosch
4.5 of 5 stars

A month after being inducted into a secret society, twelve-year-olds Cassandra and Max-Ernest (which are their cover identities, of course, because the author is not allowed to give us their real names) are eagerly awaiting instructions to start a mission. Maybe to fight off the evil Dr. L and Ms. Mauvais once again? Maybe to find a man made in a bottle five hundred years ago? After they are given a message to decode, their first mission as secret agents begin. Having several odd adventures, Cassandra discovers that maybe she wasn’t who she thought she was. Or maybe, she was exactly who she thought she was.

Though just as fast-paced as the first book, The Name of This Book is Secret, Cass and Max-Ernest’s stories are more mysterious and entertaining than ever. Clue by clue, Author Pseudonymous Bosch keeps his distinctive voice and creativity. Surprising events occur with every chapter which will bring in a large audience of younger readers (mostly boys). The format of this book is appealing so when there was a slow-moving part (which there were few of), that’s the main thing that kept me reading on.

If You’re Reading This, It’s Too Late had the perfect ending but if there is going to be another book in this series, I’ll be the first lined up to buy a copy. : )

Contains: *some mild crude humor


  1. Huh, it looks really cute!! You know "mauvais" means bad in French? Il fait mauvais means the weather is bad. Another word for bad in French is "mal", but you probably already knew that ;D

  2. This comment has been removed by the author.

  3. Cool! That sounds like a great book for my 9 year old cousin. He probably won't read it though, if I suggest ut. He's such a mean little snot! Haha. Nice thought, though.

  4. But it's the thought that counts. Right, Arya? :)

    And ... Ooh! A fun fact! I love those. No, I didn't know that what the word meant, iDogRocker. I knew it must of some special meaning because it's ... a weird name but that makes total sense! Thanks for sharing it.

  5. Sounds like a cute book. :)

  6. I REALLY WANT A COPY! I am trying to find one at the library but there isn't any books that is this.

  7. I'm glad you're interested in it. Keep looking and I hope you find a copy to read! :)


I always like reading comments! So go ahead. It's easy as one, two, three.
