Secret Scouts and The Lost Leonardo
This book is about two sisters named Sophie and Lisa, and two brothers named Tom and Jack. They find a secret room with a Leonardo Da Vinci codex and a time machine and everything needed for it except Sophie’s cell phone. They travel back in time and meet Leonardo Da Vinci, and they have adventures.
This book is unbearable. The characters’ behavior is inconsistent. One second they’re hugging a person, the next they’re yelling at them. One character is psychopathic. He gave Sophie random antibiotics, and he has a wild cat as a pet. Sophie and Lisa’s Mom will only be mentioned once in five pages, even if she’s in the car with them. There is a lot of redundancy. I think sixty-five percent of the book could be deleted and it would still be the same story. It’s too detailed. There are a lot of facts about Leonardo Da Vinci, and they’re all pretty accurate. There are other facts that aren’t, like where they indicate “The seven seas” are actually different seas, and that a floppy disc can hold a nice video. The time travel has a huge paradox in it. They have so many spoilers in the notes in the beginning. Some of the words are really strange, and they don’t make sense. The book sets bad moral values, like kids getting drunk, stealing, intentionally hurting a person, and digging up a grave.
