    Exciting but dialog-heavy; needs better editing

    Synopsis: Tommy Reed has a taste for adventure. When your uncle is one of the world's premiere treasure hunters, and when your home life is less than idyllic, perhaps the allure of mysteries and treasures is inevitable. So Tommy created the Treasure Hunter's Club along with fellow middle school classmates Chris, Jackson and Shannon. However, treasure and mystery are scarce commodities in the club's community. That is, until Tommy's Uncle Jack sends a medallion to his nephew. The medallion, Uncle Jack, and the Treasure Hunter's Club become entangled in a battle between good and evil that dates back centuries. When the epic battle is fought in the Treasure Hunter's Club's backyard, all the mystery and magic of the medallion will test the courage and intelligence of everyone involved. Overall thoughts: The idea of an adventure that combines Hardy Boys Mysteries with Indiana Jones and National Treasure was the author's inspiration to get reluctant readers to enjoy novels. Hooray for targeting this often overlooked audience! McCartney has mixed mystery and magic in a tale that reaches beyond the backyard. He wisely chose to create a slim volume; the 160 page book will be readily picked up by reluctant readers. I am impressed that the author makes a teacher's guide available online, to encourage the readers to delve deeper than the information provided in the book. He incorporates lessons in language arts, social studies and art to further encourage the reader's involvement in the story. While this is a nice debut novel that might work for the intended audience, I would argue that it would be highly interesting to low-reading-level older readers as well, even through eighth or ninth grade. Unfortunately, I think the abundance of dialogue, and subsequently too many dialogue tags, disrupt the flow of this mysterious adventure. In fact, the preponderance of storytelling is done through dialogue. Sometimes that works in developing a story, if the descriptive passages are rich. In this case, the non-dialogue often acted as a transition between conversations rather than carrying the story forward. Sometimes information was included that didn't help the story progress. Additionally, I had a hard time following three storylines at the beginning, although they all come together with cohesion in the end. One of the three plots, the back story about the origins of the medallions, was introduced and then woven into the other two stories. Transitioning between the plotlines made following the action choppy and sometimes jolting. For example, in chapter 23, there are no less than six jumps between stories, some only a few sentences long. Remembering who was doing what was confusing and tripped the pace of an exciting development in the plot. For those reasons, I knocked the review down to 3 stars. Why did I settle on a two star rating? The copy of the book I read was riddled with typos ("emaculate" rather than "immaculate," for example) and layout gaffes (line breaks mid-paragraph, lack of paragraph indentations). I would hesitate to recommend this book with these errors to a child. Additionally, the amount of dialogue created too much white space on the pages-I almost felt like I was reading a play rather than a novel. With better editing, this would be a 3-star book.

    Middle School Must Read!

    Secrets of the Magical Medallions is an action packed adventure that appeals to both male and female readers. Sean has created a troupe of imperfect characters who, though real and imagined adventure, use their wits to do the right thing. As a middle school teacher I am excited to use this novel to inspire emerging and struggling readers. With references to history, science fiction, and the trials of being in middle school, Secrets of the Magical Medallions is sure to pull in reluctant male readers, while the strong female characters of Shannon and Elizabeth will be sure to catch the attention of female readers.

    A perfect book to use as a character study or as a full novel study, Secrets of the Magical Medallions would make a wonderful addition to any middle school Language Arts curriculum.
