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. : )
