Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Lena Shaban
Book eight in the twelve book "Conspiracy 365" series; it is no sweet sixteen for Callum Ormond—his life is a far cry from that of many ordinary readers, making for a well-rounded character. Cal is attempting to unravel the Ormond Singularity papers his late father left behind, which sets off this wild year, which leads to his own unraveling. Cal does not know that he has an unmarked grave ready for him in the Infinity Gardens. Readers become aware of the time ticking off of Cal's life when the hour is given throughout the each chapter. Here is a teen fiction narrative designed to enthrall. Separated from the coveted Jewel and Riddle, Cal hears nothing and sees nothing. Minute after minute, hour after hour, Cal lingers somewhere between life and death. In a days' time, Cal is transported to a different place, but feels no different. He does not know whether to laugh or cry. The mix-up continues when Gabbi, Cal's younger sister, disappears. Cal makes no progress with Senior Sergeant Dorian McGrath, a detective, on her whereabouts. Cal's alarm for his sick sister translates into a muddle of confusion where it is hard to know who is fooling who. It seems Cal is set up. Will anyone believe him? The suspenseful, short sentences may attract younger readers, who will enjoy reading about a slightly older character. Reviewer: Lena Shaban
