Hard to Put Down!
Reviewed in the United States on July 23, 2016
I write middle-grade novels, so I like to read other books in that genre to see what other authors are up to. Masterminds is the best I've read in a long time. The author masterfully builds up suspense as you come to realize along with the characters that nothing in the sleepy little town of Serenity is what it seems. The characters experience some hair-raising moments as they scale walls and creep through duct work at the plastics factory - trying to evade the "Purple People Eaters" and discover the truth. What they find out changes everything and leaves them with just one course of action. Escape. Masterminds is skillfully written - alternating viewpoints between characters with clarity and ease. My only complaint is that it ends in a cliffhanger. Now I have to buy book 2!
