Saturday was our first Conspiracy 365 Book Club! It was fantastic. Eleven kids (11-15 year olds) joined in the lively discussion after eating muffins and coffee cake. There was debating, speculating and pure fun going on. There was never a quiet, dull moment; everyone had so much to say! What a great way to spend a Saturday morning.
The book club is reading the Conspiracy 365 series. Read my book review and then check out the website at http://www.conspiracy365us.com/
Let me know if your child would like to join us. There is always room for one more!
The book can also be ordered and read without joining the book club. To purchase go to http://www.tonyasbooks.com/

Review by Tonya Dirksen
"They killed your father, they'll kill you. You must survive the next 365 days!" On New Year's Eve, Callum Ormond is confronted by an old sick man who speaks these words to him just as the non-stop action begins.
That is how Conspiracy 365, January, begins and the action continues through the whole book. Conspiracy 365 is a hot new series for 2010 with a new book available every month. It has been described as a cross between The Da Vinci Code and 24. The story is told in real time with each chapter beginning with the time and day. The page numbers count backward to coincide with Cal's 365 day countdown.
Cal, the 15 year old teen turned fugitive, is confronted by mystery and adventure on each page. Hunted by the law and criminals, Cal must somehow uncover the truth about his father's mysterious death and a history-changing secret. His father has left clues and puzzles that Cal must figure out in order to solve this mystery.
This book is a page turner that will keep your 11-15 year old turning pages until the end and will leave them wanting more. Amanda, my 12 year old daughter, read the book in two sittings! She could not stop reading until the middle of the night and can't wait until the next book. Amanda has never been so interested in a story before and I am so glad we have found this series.
