Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Michele C. Hughes
In this sixth book of "The 39 Clues" series, siblings Amy and Dan Cahill are on the hunt for more of the clues that will ultimately lead to world domination. They travel to Australia seeking their deceased parents' friend and cousin Shep, a surf bum who can help them in their search. Threatened at every turn by the malicious and power-crazed Isabel Kabra, the children brave hungry sharks, poisonous spiders, and a house fire in their quest to become the branch of the family that comes out on top. In a surprising turn of events, Amy and Dan learn the disturbing truth about their parents' death, and a former enemy proves herself to be a friend. Shifting alliances and the sense that the children can trust no one make for an intriguing story, yet the ease with which they seem to figure out the significance of the clues often leaves the reader trailing behind. Despite the fact that they are children, the adult world grants them status as equals, and their enigmatic au pair Nellie facilitates and indulges them in whatever they plan to do to pursue more clues. The main characters grow in their understanding of events but they are not emotionally dynamic. Due to the nature of this series, it is impossible to join the ongoing plot by reading just this one book. Allusions to things that happened in prior books and references to the numerous branches of the family are reasons this book cannot stand alone. Reviewer: Michele C. Hughes

    The Best Book in the Series So Far!

    "The 39 Clues: In Too Deep," by Jude Watson is the sixth installment in the New York Times best-selling "39 Clues" series, which will contain a total of ten books when completed. With surprises around every corner, this book is impossible to put down and will keep the reader constantly wondering what will happen to fourteen and eleven-year-old siblings Amy and Dan next! Written by the same author who wrote book four in the series, "The 39 Clues: In Too Deep" will not disappoint anyone who reads it and is the best book in the series so far! It will surely leave all fans excited for the release of book seven, in which one big question will finally be answered: What branch of the Cahill family are Amy and Dan in? Find out in "The 39 Clues: The Viper's Nest," by Peter Lerangis, to be released February 2, 2010!

    For Ms Delconte

    In Too Deep by Jude Watson was in my opinion the best book in the 39 Clues series to date. In this adventure, Dan and Amy headed to Australia, the land down under to follow in thier parents foot steps and find the next clue. I really enjoyed the way Jude Watson described the characters thoughts. It helped me understand what was happening in the book. I also enjoyed that many of the characters from the previous books played an important role in the plot. However, I would have liked to read about Jonah Wizard and his dad.

    In Too Deep was a very suspenceful book. It seemed like Dan and Amy faced a problem in every single chapter from being kidnapped to being stuck in a pit full of dangerous animals. In In Too Deep you finally find out who set the fire that killed Dan and Amy's parents and who else was there on that fateful night. Also one of the main characters gets permanently "eliminated" from the hunt of the clues. Dan and Amy start to become suspicious of who their Au Pair Nelly Gomez really could be when she piloted a huge jet liner. Could she be a Madrigal? Could she be from another branch of the Cahill famliy? This really makes the me think about Mr. McIntrye's words " trust nobody". If you have been reading the 39 Clues series, or you are somebody who is looking for an adventerous action packed book, I would strongly recommend reading In Too Deep by Jude Watson.

    This is one of the BEST series ever!!!!

    In this series, Dan and Amy Cahill try to find all of the thirty-nine clues that will give them..........Well........the reader doesn't even know exactly what, but that makes the series even more exilirating.

    In this book, Amy and Dan go to Australia to find out why their late parents went there. While there, Dan and Amy meet their long lost uncle. And Amy finds out a little bit of why their parents died. She is so scarred that she doesn't even tell her own brother...................

    Amy and Dan find themselves in Australia, where Dan delights in learning about the deadly animals before they find themselves connecting with a long-lost uncle. The meeting almost makes them want to forget about their quest and live a carefree life with him, but they both know it's not meant to be.

    However, he might have information about their parents. They refuse to tell him anything about their quest because they don't want to put him in more danger.

    Danger occurs all around them. Amy's given a choice to learn about what really happened the night her parents died. Did she block out terrible memories or is someone feeding her lies about that night?

    With all the threats and double-crossings, it's clear that Amy and Dan are the team to beat - and someone's out for blood. Will they uncover any clues about the past or about their parents in the dangers of the Outback?

    Another thrilling chapter in the quest for THE 39 CLUES as Amy and Dan's adventure only becomes more complicated and more dangerous than ever. Now, the targets are closing in on the siblings and hitting close to home. Big questions are about to be answered and I can't wait to uncover them.

    Wonderful Series!

    I have read all 6 books and it is an exciting series. Having purchased these for my niece, I suggested she use the Internet to learn more about the places the children visit in their search for the 39 Clues. This not only has a world geography connection for classrooms, but students can compare the varied writing styles, since each book in the series is compiled by a different author! She is interested in logging on and participating in the on-line process of finding the 39 Clues for herself! I'm eager to get book #7 in February 2010 and book #8 in March 2010! Yes, these will be part of next year's Christmas gift ... as well as any other part of the series or Clue Card Packets (Bks 1-3 & 4-6 are already available) in print by then!

    take a dive

    Jude Watson really captures the essince of Amy Cahill in this book. You learn about their past, and get hints twoards their future. If you haven't read the other books go back and read them, but I really love this book. The only thing is for all you Ian and Amy fans, their wasn't that much. Sure there was a little but I never expect Jude to put a lot of that. Read the book, its really good. :)

    Humanity and Spasky. By Hope Lost

    The first time I read this book I cried. Irina Spaksy is a truly special and unforgettable character. The weakness of humanity are showcased in this enjoyable read- but the bratty Cahill children came along and and ruined it. Irina's last moments were emotional and beautiful, and Alistair's self-sacrifice was noble and heroic, but all the Cahills were concerned about was those stupid clues, and selfishly, their own personal saftey. These people are awful. They have no respect for human life. Read something else. Sincerly, Hope Lost

    This book was good.Dan and Amy go to Australia.It was not a very fun trip for them (Amy almost gets eaten by sharks,Amy and Dan get attacked by the Holts,a house Amy and Dan stay in gets burned down etc.).This book also introduces Isabel Kabra (Ian and Natalie's extremely evil mother).I liked this book and recommend it.Join The 39 Clues Fan Club at Unstoppable:Nowhere to run.Read The 39 Clues Fan Club (instructions).Thanks for reading this review. -K.C

    Another great installment of the 39 Clues series. I love how Ame

    Another great installment of the 39 Clues series. I love how Amelia Earhart was included into the Cahill's treasure hunt. The authors who write this series always do so well in including some great historical facts that really grab young reader's attention.
