Review: The Secret

The Secret The Secret by Kathi Daley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed this book. The characters were young and very interesting. The first chapter alone made me want to read this mystery, loads of action, fast paced, great book.

The Secret is the first book in the series called Seacliff High. The second book in the series by Kathi Daley is called The Curse.
