This week, Christian is reading a very special book, The Secret DMS Files of Fairday Morrow, by J. Haight & S. Robinson. Christian was lucky enough to obtain a copy of this wonderful book, although it is not yet available in stores. If you'd like to find out more about this great book, go to Fairday's Blog to find out all about it and to read the first few chapters.
So, without any more chatter, let's see how Christian liked the book.
Here's what Christian says The Secret DMS Files of Fairday Morrow is about:
"The book is about a girl named Fairday Morrow who goes to live in a house that she doesn't really want to go live in, because she's moving away from her friends in Manhattan. The house is in Connecticut, and is really creepy and old.
"After they get to the house, they find a mirror. When she first sees it, she thinks she sees a pair of ruby red high heeled sneakers disappearing behind a door in the mirror. She invites her friend Lizzy over to spend the weekend. They try to solve a mystery surrounding the Begonia house, by gathering clues, like a hairbrush with a strand of hair, and a picture with writing on the back
"One day, when Fairday is babysitting her little sister Magro, Margo crawls into the mirror. Fairday pulls her out and she's holding a ruby red high heeled sneaker. This adds to the mystery of the Begonia house, and gives them another clue.
"She interviews Larry Lovell, who is an old guy who used to be a reporter and knows a lot about the house. After that, many strange things happen. I won't give it away, but it's an interesting mystery with lots of magic and suspense."
What did you like most about the book?
"It's kind of hard to say because it was all really good. I would say I really liked the part when they thought that they saw a red haired figure standing in the mirror. I also liked the pictures a lot."
Was there anything you didn't like?
"I liked it all. I hope there's a sequel because I really liked the characters, and I wonder what the next mystery will be."
So, how does Christian rate The Secret DMS Files of Fairday Morrow by J. Haight & S. Robinson?
He gives it five out of five flaming monkey heads.
