The Shadow Club Rising The Shadow Club is a great book about a group of kids who are always coming in second place. They form a club and pull cruel pranks on their rivals. The club ended in the first book, but the new kid, Alec is good at everything. This made people furious. So someone starts playing pranks on him. All fingers are pointed at Jared, the used to be leader of the Shadow Club. Even though he is not the one doing it, he has to prove his innocence. Even though Jared doesn¿t like Alec, he would pull pranks on him. The group that hung around Alec started to wear denim hats with the initials TSC on it. They said the initials mean the tennis and squash center. They lied It really stood for The Shadow Club. They were pulling pranks while Jared took the blame. It was the perfect plan until Jared found out who was doing it. They eventually got in trouble and were expelled, and life went on. Alec was ok and everyone was fine for now.
If you thought you liked the Shadow Club, Shusterman's thrilling sequel, The Shadow Club Rising, is a must read. When Jared Mercer is caught up in a suffocating reputation as prankster, he resorts to anything to prove his innocence. When he is even accused by his own parents, he doesnt give up hope, he still tries to crack the case. This book had me on the edge of my seat, turning the pages a mile a minute.
