I found the story enjoyable, even though it appears to be for the YA audience. Light and in the style of what I expect from James Patterson. Worth the read.

My 12 year old son was so excited for the sequel to come out. We preordered the book. He couldn’t even finish the book. He was so disappointed because their was so much political stuff in it. I encouraged him to keep reading to see if it got better. He said he wished he’d never read it. He was so disappointed because the first book was amazing! Would not recommend this book unless you are into today’s political world.

I didn't realize when I bought it was a young person's book but as I read on I couldn't help but be caught up in it. I love the story line and the part about the kids wanting to jump in and try to make real life situations better. I highly recommend this book
Fast moving, interesting characters good story, enjoyed it very much good for All.ages like all.young teenagers he doesn't listen to his parents, has to make choices between them and working a case on someone he cares about, enjoy
Didn't know this was a teenage book when I bought it but at 84 it actually was great not to have so ma y characters to keep straight and a real pleasure not to have specific sex on every other pae. It made reading fun again ! Sometimes looking back is a real relief. An excellent read.
