One False Note (The 39 Clues, Book 2)
One False Note - Gordon Korman

This is not actually a review of the book, just a short commentary on it: for everyone out there who is happy that they/their children are learning a bit of history along the way,

a) Marie Antoinette never said "Let them eat cake", it's a misattribution that was corrected years ago, and

b) the French word used is actually brioche, not gateau, as the book incorrectly states.

 

Rant over.

Shatterproof - Roland Smith 2.5 stars

It was fine. I do hope they wrap this up soon as the back and forth with the Vespers trying to kill the hostages is wearing thin. Dan continues to believe that he has no choice but to take the formula in order to win. Amy likes Jack and Ethan! Oh, dear. Whatever will she do? Sinead is the spy! I was actually thinking Ethan, to be honest. And is Vesper One their dad or not????
