Secrets of New Forest Academy (Janitors #2)

Spencer's life fighting toxites has gone on as normal. But things are about to change, Spencer and Daisy are finding way more toxites at their school than is normal, a whole bucketful in the library caused a bunch of problems. Why so many extra toxites? Their friend and mentor Walter comes back and saves them just in the nick of time, and he has some explanations about the numbers of toxites. The BEM (Bureau of Educational Maintenance) is after Spencer for something they think that his dad sent him. Spencer is confused, he's not received anything in the two years since his dad disappeared. But the BEM is coming, and Spencer and Daisy must disappear, fast. And because of circumstances beyond their control, the bully Dez is going to have to disappear too. Walter is going to send them to an elite private school, hopefully to get them out of the way. But Walter had no way of knowing that his contact there would have disappeared by the time the kids get there. The one place they thought would be safe is now filled with danger for the kids. Will they be able to stay one step ahead of the BEM and bad guys?

I really enjoyed this book. It's filled with action and adventure. It's also completely clean. I love the concept of fighting the bad toxites and bad guys of the BEM with seemingly ordinary cleaning supplies. I laughed out loud when one of the other kids in the book threatened the bad guy with a feather duster and Spencer, thinking that all cleaning supplies are weapons asked what it did, the kid said that it dusted things. So funny! I really like Spencer and Daisy, I love that they are regular kids that are able to fight the bad guys. I can't wait to read more of their adventures!

I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Deseret Bookshelf Plus Review

I'm super excited to be able to tell you about Deseret Bookshelf's newest feature, Plus. I actually first heard about plus coming six months ago at Deseret Book's ladies night. I thought it sounded pretty great and now that I've tried it, I think it's even better than it sounded. It's basically a subscription that you add on top of the Deseret Bookshelf App. If you have Deseret Book's Platinum membership, you pay only $6.99 a month or $69 a year. If you don't it's $9.99 a month or $99 a year. Either way that's a really good deal for what you are going to be getting.

Here's the deal. With plus, you get to listen to all of their audiobooks...for FREE! Something I noticed on this is that you get to listen to even the newest books that are just barely in the store for FREE. I love this! Who has the time to run to the store to grab the book the very day it comes out? Not me, I'm too busy chasing kids around to do that!

Not to mention - have you…

SeaQuest Aquarium Giveaway

For this week's Friday Favorite (I know...it's only Wednesday!) I want to tell you about something new that I got to try out just last week. It's the SeaQuest Aquarium located in the Layton Hills Mall in Layton. 




This is a pretty new thing, it actually just opened in November. It's new, it's beautiful and there really is nothing like it located in Davis County. And actually, the way that it's been set up there isn't a whole lot like it out there. You see, it's not just an aquarium, it's really an interactive experience. There are only a few exhibits in the whole aquarium that have animals in them that you can't/shouldn't interact with. Those exhibits have high walls on them so you really can't interact with them anyway. Everything else has low walls. You can touch, feed, examine pretty much anything you see here. That makes it so much more than an aquarium.

I love the way it's set up in areas. Each of the rooms has a different and fun …
