Some of the really good books are made just as a little something for someone instead of beginning as a published book. One of these books is The Name of This Book is Secret.
It originally started as just a story to a kid at an elementary school, W.P. May. The school had organized a Writing Partner program, where adults and children in fourth or fifth grade exchange letters or stories, etc. May had wrote plenty of things to Pseudonymous Bosch, the author of the Name of This Book is Secret, including a comic strip about chocolate for P.B. And Mr.Bosch had nothing to write for her. So, he came up with The Name of This Book is Secret.
Cass and Max Ernest have no idea what they've gotten themselves into. (Wait--was I not supposed to mention their names?) When a box filled with a dead musician's belongings comes into Cass' grandparents', Larry and Wane, store, a danger from two mysterious people dawns upon the world. This object is only the beginning of evil forces, and only survivalist Cass and Magician/Comedian in training Max Ernest can stop them. But do are you brave enough to open this book and read it? I'm warning you--The Name of This Book is Secret.
(Cue the evil laugh)
Okay. This Book by Mr.Bosch is simply brilliant. There probably is no other word to describe it. (Besides AWESOMESAUCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) So anyway, Pseudonymous made it at **** (Four Stars). The book is great and hilarious, no doubt about that. If you haven't read this book, I say you should add it to your TBR (To Be Read) list. It's fun for adults and kids, as young as third grade. Why this book didn't make five stars--the ending was awful in my perspective. I usually hate endings, but this one just wasn't good. Thank you, you just gave the permission form for my mommy to sign so I can go on another life-threatening adventure! Yay! For a period of time, I said that I wasn't going to read the next book. But if you're going to read the first book, I say you read the next. If you can get past the bad ending and pick up the next book, please do. So if Mr.Bosch had fixed up the ending, then the book would have made the highest rating.
