THE SECRET KEEPERS, by Trenton Lee Stewart


The story: When Reuben discovers an antique watch, he soon realizes there’s far more to it than meets the eye–in fact, it’s what DOESN’T meet the eye that’s most astounding. Its owner can use it to become invisible. Even more amazing…and worrying…is that the watch has a twin, and if someone can get hold of both, they may be able to use them to live forever. Of course, The Smoke–the evil boss who runs Reuben’s hometown–happens to have the other one, and with eyes in every corner of town, it’s just a matter of time until he tracks Reuben down. How can Reuben beat The Smoke and rescue himself and his mom from their own dire reality?

Mrs. Friend’s opinion: If you don’t mind being patient, you’ll like this story of magic and danger from the author of “The Mysterious Benedict Society”.
