For those of you who loved The Billionaire’s Curse (PB $19.95) just as much as we did, the second book in The Billionaire Trilogy has finally arrived. In The Emerald Casket, 13-year-old billionaire, Gerald, delves deeper into the mystery surrounding his aunt’s death, a story that seems to begin thousands of years ago, with Gerald’s distant ancestors. To add to the bizarreness that is his new life as a teenage billionaire, Gerald discovers his family is somehow tied to a pact made by three brothers to spread three secret caskets to the furthest corners of the Roman Empire. To escape England, his newfound fame and all things strange, Gerald, with friends Sam and Ruby, travel to India on Gerald’s private jet for a well deserved holiday. They stay with the beautiful Alisha and are determined to have the time of their lives, but little do they know, the mystery will follow them halfway around the world. Once again, the friends become ensnared in a hunt for something they don’t really understand, but must find before it falls into the wrong hands. The second book in this great adventure trilogy certainly does not disappoint! Recommended for tweens 11+. PB $19.95.

These books are perfect for kids in those in-between, or tween, years. Not quite kids but not yet teenagers either, it can be difficult to find books 11 to 14 yr olds want to read that parents don’t think are inappropriate. Hopefully these titles will bridge the gap and keep everyone happy!
