This is the new book for august. I heard someone already finished it. I hope you liked it or if you haven't started it (like me.) I hope you enjoy it!I read this last year and it was one of my all time favorites this is why...

The metropolitan museum of art in New York City. They sleep in the antique old fashioned beds, bathe in the fountain, and go fishing for coins in the same fountain they bathe in(they meaning here brother and her). But what makes it one of the best books I have ever read is that, She solves one of the world most unknown treasures. Who made the angel statue. The day she got there there was a big line and she wanted to know what is for so she cuts a couple of people in line and sees something amazing. Angel. To learn more read for yourself!

Review: The London Eye Mystery

The London Eye Mystery
By: Siobhan Dowd
Pages: 323
Genre: Mystery
Rating: 4.5/5

The London Eye Mystery starts with 3 kids, Ted, Kate (brother and sister) and their cousin Salim who is moving to New York. When Ted, Kate and Salim go to the fair Salim wants to go on the London Eye. When the capsule he went up in comes down and everyone walks out, something incredible happens - Salim is not there. Ted and Kate come together to help find Salim. In the end they find out where Salim was and whether he was alive.

One good thing I found out of the many in the London Eye Mystery was that the author Siobhan Dowd always kept her reader in suspense until at the very end they find that Salim was alive or dead. I think that Ms. Siobhan has done an excellent job with ‘The London Eye Mystery’. It is a book complete with all the twists and turns that makes this story a wonderful book.
