Description
(Publisher Website)
From best-selling author G.P. Taylor comes the highly anticipated second installment of The Dopple Ganger Chronicles, a series that combines art and traditional text to help “reluctant readers” discover the wonder of books.
Erik Morissey Ganger, famed explorer and detective (well, in his dreams), and his mischief-making sidekicks, twins Sadie and Saskia Dopple, didn’t go looking for a secret tunnel beneath the school. They never intended to make the acquaintance of a shifty private eye with a nose for trouble. It wasn’t part of the plan to come face to face with an old enemy, one with an agenda of his own that could destroy them all. And unraveling the “secret of indigo moon” was the farthest thing from their minds.
At Isambard Dunstan’s School for Wayward Children, these things just seem to happen.
In The Secret of Indigo Moon, confirmed troublemakers Erik, Sadie, and Saskia plunge headlong into a new and perilous mystery, one that challenges everything they thought they knew about their lives, themselves, and whom it’s safe to trust.

Review
I had never read any books by this author before and didn't know what to expect. Having raised a child who had trouble with reading, I was interested to see what they did to engage this type of reader. I was not disappointed. If you have a difficult reader, this might be something that would engage them.

Inside the covers of this book you find yourself in an amazing world of comic book pages, amazing fonts, typeset pages and line art. The illustrations and other art give life to characters and makes them seem to jump off the pages. There are huge drawings that make the book interactive, requiring the reader to read the clues. In today's multimedia world this book seems to embrace the best of both worlds.

There are innumerable teen fantasy books flooding the market, but this book is completely different from anything that I had seen before. This alone could be what it takes to get a reluctant teen reading.

This book was provided free of charge by the publisher as a review copy. The publisher had no editorial rights or claims over the content or the conclusions made in this review.

Every year we lose more people to AIDS. It hasn't disappeared and it's not going away anytime soon. I urge you to seek out and support your local AIDS Organizations. Encourage everyone you know to practice safe sex and to get tested once a year. Even if you don't think you are at risk, get tested. I didn't think I was at risk either, and I almost died before I was diagnosed.
