My daughter is devouring these books. We could only get books 1-8 through our local library so I purchased the next set of 4 (books 9-12). These are such good books I will be purchasing the entire set for my younger children to read when they are older. Highly recommended.
I just finished reading Instance Menace by Jerry B Jenkins and Chris Fabry. This is a mystery geared towards pre-teens and teenagers.
Bryce and Ashley are twins, and they are Christian sleuths. If there's a mystery, they are going to get to the bottom of it! This is the first book of the series I have read, so it makes a great stand-alone book as well, although I'm sure the other books would be good as well.
In Instant Menace, Bryce and Ashley are separated at school by the new principal. The last principal thought they would do well together after their dad died in a plane crash, but the new principal thinks it's best they are separated. And why did the last principal, Mr. Forster, leave?
First day of school brings enough changes, but then a teacher's prized coins go missing from a locked cabinet. Who took those? And does it have anything to do with Mr. Forster?
The 8th grade class is split into "teams" to come up with a community project. The Red Team decides to create a secret chat room. Bryce is turned into the principal because of threats he made to another student in the chat room. Only Bryce says he didn't make them.
Being the mystery-solvers they are, Bryce and Ashley find a clue which solves the entire mystery.
I really enjoyed this book. I'm not the targeted age but it was a great read and I think anyone in the targeted age range, boy or girl, would enjoy this!
Eighth grade brings new challenges and surprises for twins Ashley and Bryce. Mr. Foster is no longer the principal and has been accused of various crimes. Bryce and Ashley don't believe the accusations, but when the new principal separates them their investigation is stymied.
With chat-room threats and lessons in Separation of Church and State eighth grade becomes a lesson in real life. Will Ashley and Bryce make the grade?
My grandson loves this series. Everytime I see him I give him the next in the series....he can read one in 2 sittings!!! Thanks to the authors for a book series that is written well and has the values as a believer, I want my grandchildren to have too.
