Conspiracy 365 Series
One series I read this summer was Conspiracy 365. Conspiracy 365 is full of adventure.
Cal Ormond, the main character, is trying to uncover a family secret which he suspects is connected to his father’s death. The first book begins on New Year’s Eve when Cal is approached by a man who collapses at his feet with a warning that Cal is in danger and must survive 365 days. It isn’t long after, that Cal discovers the man’s warning is true. Cal barely escapes death; mysterious people are following him, and he is framed for a crime. Over the next 365 days, Cal is on the run, trying to elude the police and the mysterious people who are trying to capture him. With his family turned against him, Cal relies on his techno-savvy friend to help him stay safe and uncover the family secret that is endangering his life. Each book in the series is a month of the year. At the end of each book (month) Cal is left in a dangerous position. Of course, that just makes the reader want to start the next book to find out what happens.
The only negative thing about this series is that it really must be read in order since events and information from each month builds on the next. However, the positives far outweigh the negatives. This series is packed with non-stop action from the first word until the very last word.
I love working in the middle school library because each day I get to work with wonderful students. In addition, I have access to lots of interesting books. It is always fun to help students connect to books they like, and to talk about what they are reading.
