My rating: 4 of 5 stars
From blurb: Imagine a school in the year 2074 where students don’t read history, but watch it happen around them; where running in gym class isn’t around a track, but up a virtual mountain; and where learning about animals means becoming one through an avatar.
Abby and Derick, twins who are about to start their new school year at Cragbridge Hall. A school that is the most prestigious schools around, in the world even. A school that their grandfather founded. You see he's this major Major inventor, creating one of the best inventions to date, the Bridge, it lets you see history as it happens.
So for this school you got to be pretty darn special and advanced to get into it. And well for Derick that's nothing he never fails at anything he does. He has the grades. Abby on the other hand, she's pretty much just average. So adjusting to this new life is a little harder on her then others.
Now on top of this new life, they find out their grandfather and both parents are missing and it is up to them to figure out what happened and find them before it's too late.
The Inventor's Secret, is a wonderful mystery for middle graders. Entertaining and informative at the same time. A younger me would have really enjoyed this story. It's great way to teach children some history and the importance of why things happened and how it is up to us and future generations to not make the same mistakes as the past.
