Book Review: The Name of this Book is Secret

 Summary: Warning: this description has not been authorized by Pseudonymous Bosch.
As much as he'd love to sing the praises of his book (he is very vain), he wouldn't want you to hear about his brave 11-year old heroes, Cass and Max-Ernest. Or about how a mysterious box of vials, the Symphony of Smells, sends them on the trail of a magician who has vanished under strange (and stinky) circumstances. And he certainly wouldn't want you to know about the hair-raising adventures that follow and the nefarious villains they face. You see, not only is the name of this book secret, the story inside is, too. For it concerns a secret. A Big Secret.

 Thoughts: This was a really cute story  reminiscent of A Series of Unfortunate Events. The cast was interesting and the plot always kept me guessing to the very end. It was full of quirky humor and underplayed terror that really made the story for me. It was a little slow on occasion and I wasn't completely impressed with all the characters, it does have some intriguing potential that makes me curious to see where it goes.

 Content: The climax of the story and big are a little disturbing if you really think about them but are underplayed to the point of not being scary. Mildly scary or violent situations. 
 All in all a fairly clean book for just about any age.
