Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Phyllis Kennemer
Q (short for Quest) and Angela, step-siblings aged thirteen and fifteen respectively, arrive at the White House at 2:00 a.m. on September 6 with their rock star parents. They are summoned to the Oval Office soon thereafter to confer with the President. Seems that they are a part of a secret anti-terrorist organization—of which their parents are unaware. Angela's biological mother is an undercover agent in a terrorist conspiracy and chapters from her viewpoint are interspersed with those written in first person by Q. Angela and Q are charged with discovering the moles within the White House staff and are thus exposing themselves to danger. The fast paced story is told in segments throughout the one day, ending at 9:16 p.m. This second book in the series seems to assume that readers are familiar with the first book and makes the assumption that they will continue to the third one. The story just stops in the middle of an episode with no conclusion or satisfying sense of closure. Reading this book on its own is like arriving late at the theater, seeing the second act of the play, and then leaving before the third act begins. Part of the "I.Q." series. Reviewer: Phyllis Kennemer, Ph.D.
VOYA - Angie Hammond
Kidnapping, murder, car bombs, and a 3 AM trip to the Oval Office are just a day in the life of Q, Angela, and the rest of the SOS team. It may not be a typical day, but this story does take place in the course of one twenty-four-hour period. When Q's mother marries Angela's father in the first book of the series, they set off on a whirlwind stage tour with their new band, while Angela's Secret Service agent mom is thought to be dead but is actually posing as her terrorist twin sister. In this second book of the series, she is coming one step close to exposing a terrorist ghost cell alive and gathering strength in Washington, D.C., and we are a few leaps closer to getting to know her background and family ties. This spell-binding James Bond genre espionage novel for the middle school set will leave readers breathlessly waiting for the next installment. The set-up is a bit hurried, so it would be helpful for any reader to read the first book first, although within a few chapters the story does piece itself together. Great for readers of 39 Clues (Scholastic) and others interested in crime drama. Reviewer: Angie Hammond

    Another thrilling book by Roland Smith

    This book kept me glued to the pages. I really enjoyed this spy thriller. This continues the story of IQ and his step sister Angela and they are in the White House. It was so interesting reading about life on the inside and how IQ and Angela along with PK (president's kid) and how they interact with the secret agents and stay out of danger and yet are involved in a very dangerour and culvert operation. I couldn't put it down until the very end.

    Very entertaining!!!

    The second book of the I,Q series is just as entertaining, suspenseful, and mysterious as the first; maybe even more. The twists and turns of the plot keep you on your toes until the very end. The characters are so vivid and reading it from two points of view was brilliant. Roland Smith has created another great book and I can't wait for the next!

    13 year old boy loved it

    My thirteen year old son requested this (and number 3) after loving the first book in the series. He gobbled this one up in just a few days, foregoing tv time for reading! A win in my book. Based on his summary to me, it has relationships, mystery, and suspense. It definitely has some violence as there is a kidnapping plot involved, but I'd much rather have my child read something of that nature than to see it on tv.

    WOW!!

    This is a vey interesting book! It has succeeded in hooking me on this set. In it the two "vegetarians" meet the President, but that is not the most exciting event! Read it and enjoy! I look forward to the next in the set!
