I love to read YA literature, and Josh and The Gumshoe News Crew was great! It was easy to read, understand and would be very easy to turn into a great series :) Josh is just a boy until he finds out that he has special powers or the "Wunderkind". He has no idea what it means, until he rescues a bird and decides to bring it home and names it Max. Max becomes his "sidekick" and all of Josh's friends decide to begin training themselves to become private investigators. I found this book very funny and cute, I think it it something that most kids would love! I am 38 and loved it :) The kids are not just simple characters, we find that they are very intelligent and able to take care of themselves in most situations. I love the way the author humanizes Max the Bird - he becomes an integral part of the story and saves Josh on more than one occasion! I cannot wait until the next story about the Gumshoe News Crew comes out :) ***I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review***
