Book Review: The Boy Who Knew Everything

 Summary: There is a prophecy.
   It speaks of a girl who can fly and a boy who knows everything. The prophecy says that they have the power to bring about great change...
  The boy is Conrad Harrington III. The girl is Piper McCloud. They need their talents now, more than ever, if they are to save the world—and themselves.

Thoughts: This was the sequel to The Girl Who Could Fly and is rapidly becoming one of my most favorite series. The first book was great, the second was amazing. The first book moved me while the moment I finished the second I turned it over and started reading from the beginning again! 
 The story, the plot, it was so incredibly complex I had no idea what was going on right up until the end!  Every new twist, turn or detail threw me and I was riveted to this book for two whole days, unable to put it down!
 The writing is so good! It carries a classic feel that reminds me of Little House on the Prairie or even The Mysterious Benedict Society. It's cozy and comfy but positively chilling when things get dangerous. 
 The characters wrung my heart out like a rag and then gave it back. The relationships and developments in here are beyond believable. And yet, they are completely believable and that's what gets me the most, the very real emotions each person shares with another...needless to say I was moved deeply by the end.

Content: D*** was used max twice. Otherwise the biggest problem was violence. I thought the first book was bad but here we encounter lava, lightening storms and a torrent of other painful punishments all used on children. Two people are shot and there's a scene where an adult almost throws a non-flying child off a roof. None of the violence or wounds are ever graphic or described in much detail.
 This book could get a little tense but never scary and the smooth writing get the violence from getting horrific, mostly it just makes you cry. All in all a mostly clean read for any age and highly recommended in you like special children and really deep, moving, exciting stories!
