This book is about two kids named Amy and Dan Cahill who are trying to find the 39 clues before any of their other family members do. In the last book; The 39 Clues: The Maze of Bones, Amy and Dan found out they were related to some of the most famous people in history. Grace Cahill, Amy and Danís grandmother, gave them and everybody else a choice: They could take $1 million and just walk away; or they could risk their lives and try and find the 39 clues that are hidden all over the world. Along with some other family members, Amy and Dan decide to find the 39 clues. Along with their Au Pair, Nellie, they travel all around the world.

Now it is 3 weeks later and Amy and Dan are in Paris with Saladin and Nellie. They are trying to get back Mozartís music sheet that the Holtsí stole from them. They need the music sheet to try and find the 2nd clue before any of their relatives do. Amy and Dan will need all the help they can get to survive the traps their relatives have set for them. They remember Mr. McIntyre telling them;Ē Trust no one.Ē Amy and Dan donít know who they can trust; they donít even know if they can trust Mr. McIntyre anymore. Amy and Dan go on a really big adventure where they try to find the 39 clues. Read the 39 Clues: One False Note if you want to find out about Amy and Danís journey to try and find the 39 Clues!

I really like this book because it is very adventurous and the book is just like a puzzle, Amy and Dan are trying to put all of the clues they find into one big puzzle. I think I am really like Amy because she really likes to read, and I do too. I really like the part where Amy and Dan try to solve the clue of Mozartís music sheet. There, Amy and Dan break into the Janus H.Q. to get more info on Mozartís music sheet.

I recommend this book for people who really like action and adventure stories. It would be a good book for people ages 7 & up because it has a lot of parts in the book where it is really funny, and it is a fairly short book, too. I hope you get a chance to read this awesome book!!!
