Interesting characters and fascinating concept, but the pacing feels off. a fun one to skim through, but the writing makes it hard to fully immerse yourself in the book.

Hardy Boys Tunnel of Secrets
by Franklin W. Dixon

I loved all of the suspense brought up in this book! I loved all of the mini-mysteries along with the main mystery of who kidnapped the girl. I loved the way Franklin Dixon described the caves, and built up suspense from the near death of the Hardy Boys. When the find the Admirals body, the whole book seems to turn around. It's crazy!

I love how it shows the history of early Jamaica through a fictional story. I learned about concerns about slavery, pirates, highwaymen, and early plantation owners in the jungles of Jamaica. And it was a pleasant, clean love story, too.

The Guest Book
by Sarah Blake

It is good, but has adult scenes, which I don't appreciate. It explores the impact of prejudice, and also the dynamics of family relationships.
