The Inventor's Secret (Cragbridge Hall #1)

It's the year 2074, and school is very different from what it is today. In gym class, you're going to run up a virtual mountain with your class and a class from halfway around the world. You're also going to study history in a far different way, you'll actually be able to "be" there in a way that no one else has ever experienced. This is what school is like in the most advanced and prestigious school in the world, Cragbridge Hall. Enter Abby and Derick Cragbridge, twins and grandkids of the founder of Cragbridge Hall. They're both excited to begin their educations at this amazing school, but Abby knows that the only reason she got into this school is her grandfather. She actually received a rejection letter before she received an acceptance letter. Most of the kids that are in the school have accomplished amazing things in their short lives, but Abby feels...well, average. This causes lots of the girls to look down on her and feel that their own friends, who had accomplished so much and not gotten in, should have had more of a chance than Abby had to go to Cragbridge Hall. But Abby must learn that it doesn't really matter what others think of her, and be able to ignore them in order to learn and grow herself. When Abby and Derick's parents and grandfather end up missing, it's up to Abby and Derick to find and save them, but will they be able to find them in time?

Wow! I really loved this book. The story is fantastic, filled with imagination, adventure and action. The characters are great too! I loved Abby and hated her roommate who was so mean to her. I really liked the way that it was hard for even the reader to tell just who was trustworthy. The person that seemed to be most trustworthy ends up being one of the bad guys. I can't say enough good things about this one, you'll just have to go read it for yourself to understand it's amazingness!
