Beware Dangerous secrets lie between the pages of this book. OK, I warned you. But if you think I'll give anything away, or tell you that this is the sequel to my first literary endeavor, The Name of This Book is Secret, you're wrong.

I certainly won't be telling you about how the kids stumble upon the Museum of Magic, where they finally meet the amazing Pietro Oh, blast I'v... View more info
