This book was amazing. My dad recommended it to my after I finished all the books in the house!! The mysterious parts were only mysterious for one day though. At 11 reading Books for high school kids this was a well written book. If you enjoy tons of mystery I would recommend "Conspiracy 365. "

We loved the wolverine. We really liked the Stone House and the artifacts Jamie found under it. As a mom I really liked that these teeage boys could admit their mistakes and learn from them.
