Overview

Trying to escape the vicious King Kobra gang and  troubled life at home, eighth graders Barnie and  Teresa flee the city. With only four dollars  between them, they hop a bus, hoping to find a new life  at the end of the line. Destination: Paradise  Park.

Barnie and Teresa spend their days and nights  in the climate-controlled consumer paradise of a  large department store. And just when they think  they can live there unnoticed forever, Teresa and  Barnie find that even Paradise Park has its secrets.  Even in the dead of night, they are far from  alone....

    I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good adventure.

    I recommend this adventurous book to anyone of any age. It starts with a couple of new friends, Teresa and Barnie. They runaway together because they were afraid of Harley Probst and his gang, King Kobras. Teresa and Barnie end up at the Paradise Park Mall. "Smoking is a no-no" is one of the many signs in the mall that makes this book seem childish, yet adventurous. Barnie and Teresa planned to live out their days at the mall, but they were attacked. They were attacked by manikins. I won't ruin the ending. You will have to read the book to find out for yourself.

    A book review by a high school student

    Secrets of the Shopping Mall is written by the acclaimed author, Richard Peck. He vividly describes the adventures of two urban teenagers who live in disfunctional families. Like most people, the two teens attempt to run away from their problems at home only to find that more problems await them. This book is the most incredible and original adventure story I have ever read. Although its plot may seem childish at first, I guarentee that the book is well written. There was not a moment when I was not left in suspense. I recommend this book for people of all ages.
