About my blog

When I was a little girl, I struggled to read. Reading did not come naturally to me; however, over the last 30 years I have become an avid reader, I love books. I love LDS (Latter Day Saint) Historical fiction, I love romance, I love biographies, I love stories of hope, and ways to help. I will post books that I have read, ones that have warmed my heart and given me hope!

The Inventor's Secret

 About the book:
Imagine a school in the year 2074 where students don't read history, but watch it happen around them; where running in gym class isn't around a track, but up a virtual mountain; and where learning about animals means becoming one through an avatar. Welcome to Cragbridge Hall, the most advanced and prestigious school in the world.

Twins Abby and Derick Cragbridge are excited as new students to use their famed grandfather's inventions that make Cragbridge Hall so incredible. But when their grandfather and parents go missing, the twins must follow a mysterious trail of clues left by their grandfather. They must find out where their family is, learn who they can trust, and discover what secrets are hidden within Cragbridge Hall.

Abby and Derick soon realize they are caught in a race with a fierce adversary to discover their grandfather's greatest secret — a dangerous discovery that could alter both history and reality.

About the Author:
Chad Morris grew up wanting to become a professional basketball player or a rock star. (Inspired by Animal from the Muppets, he’s been banging on drums since he was eight years old.) After high school, he wrote and performed sketch comedy while going to college, and eventually he became a teacher and a curriculum writer. He lives in Utah with his wife and five kids.

Chad would love to teach at Cragbridge Hall. Unlike Oscar Cragbridge, however, he hasn’t really invented anything, though his son once sketched out blueprints for a machine that would turn celery into cookies.

My Review:
I'm extremely late with this review, and I apologize to Chad Morris and Shadow Mountain.

Oscar Cragbridge grandfather extraordinaire created and invented technology that we in 2013 could only dream of having. This fun read was so exciting, ever changing. Just when I thought I had figured things out, the book had more twists, and keep me reading for more.

I especially felt drawn to the two main characters twins Derick and Abby and their dedication to their parents and grandfather. I saw such love and determination from these two teenagers, it made my heart happy to think how wonderful is it that kids respect their parents and grandfather so much that they would do anything, and risk anything to save them.

I would say that this is one of the most exciting fun books I have read in a long time. I can not wait to pass it off to my 10 and 11 year old to read, they will love it. Which just shows me that this book is meant for all ages, I so enjoyed it, and yet my kids will love it too. I enjoy reading books that my whole family can enjoy.

I give this book four stars on a scale of 1-4. I would recommend this book to anyone of all ages. The read was clean, fun, adventurous and heartwarming.

Thank you to Shadow Mountain for the opportunity to read this book, I was not paid for my review, I was provided a reviewers copy of the book for my honest review.
