EJ12 was a pleasant surprise.
I was expected to be bored or underwhelmed.
Starting with the third book in a series isn’t always the best way to get into it. But the easy style and quick re-caps of the important information made this very accessible.
The codes, pictures and diagrams were carefully placed in the chapter so you could decipher them yourself before EJ – lots of fun!
It was well paced and developed age appropriate fears and issues. EJ was given satisfying, modern crimes to solve with modern gadgets and up-to-date technology (think Get Smart and Inspector Gadget). And we could all use an Eco-deco button in our lives – to clean up our messes with an environmentally friendly push of a button!
These books are perfect for 6+ girls (and boys who love gadgets) who are good readers and would be great for the 8+ readers who are struggling a bit with their reading.
SHINE’s solar energy station is under threat from the evil agency SHADOW.
Special Agent EJ12 needs to lighten up. She must crack SHADOW’s codes and overcome her fears to stop them before they turn the lights out on the SHINE network. That’s the easy part.
As EJ12, Emma Jacks can do anything. So why is she worried about going to her best friend’s slumber party? Perhaps she isn’t after all.
