No one takes Spencer Zumbro seriously when he tries to warn his classmates about the mysterious things prowling the halls and classrooms of Welcher Elementary School. But when he sees Marv, the janitor, going after one of the creatures with a vacuum, he knows he's not the only one who can see them. With the help of his new friend, Daisy, Spencer has to find out what the janitors know. The children's search uncovers the magic taking place behind the scenes of their seemingly ordinary school, where a battle is being waged for the minds of the students. Who can be trusted – and can Spencer and Daisy protect their school and possibly the world?
Tyler Whitesides worked as a janitor at an Elementary school to put himself through college. He graduated from Utah State University with a degree in music. In addition to writing YA novels, Tyler is an avid composer and arranger of instrumental music. He and his wife, Connie (who teaches third grade) live in Logan, Utah.
This sequel in the Janitor series (Part 2) had so many twists. It developed more characters that I did not think would be in this book. Many of the characters from book 1 came back. The author Mr. Whitesides developed characters so well, they felt real to me. The more the author described the characters the more I felt I was apart of the story. In this story there were more janitor tools to be used as magic, that was very good! It also made me think I could go on a broom and fly. Although I will say, I am always looking around to see if there are toxins in my school. This book was so fun to read, again I could not put the book down, to the point that my parents were always asking me to turn off my light or put the book down for dinner.
I loved this adventure. I recommend it to all teens and older children who love children's fantasy.
Thank you Shadow Mountain Publishing for the being able to read this fun book.
