The Inventor's Secret by Chad Morris
Title: The Inventor's Secret (Cragbridge Hall #1)
Author: Chad Morris
Genre: Mid-Grade Fiction/Sci Fi/Fantasy
Premise: "When twins Abby and Derick start junior high at the prestigious academy their grandfather founded, Cragbridge Hall, they discover firsthand the dangers of time travel and must find a way to save their parents, who have been sent to the Titanic the night it sank" (King County Library System).
Opinions: This was an absolutely fun book to read. I loved Abby and her journey to believe in herself. Her roommate Carol was a hoot and interesting to read. There were times I felt like smacking Derick, but I'm pretty sure that was intentional. The inventions used through out this story are creative and come with believable consequences. Overall it was an intriguing way to make history come alive for kids. I look forward to reading the sequel that just came out in March, The Avatar Battle.
