In 80 Days or Die, close on the heels of Bk1, Max (and his cousin Alex) search for the ingredients of a medicine that could save the life of a friend. But in order to do so, they’ll have to recreate the journey that inspired their ancestor Jules Verne’s famous story, Around the World in Eighty Days. It’s not just a race against time. It’s a race against rivals. The 100-Year-Old Secret introduces Americans Xena and Xander Holmes, descendants of Sherlock Holmes, who tackle one of the great detective’s unsolved cases while visiting England. (I’d say it’s geared for lower middle grade readers.) And Snapdragon is a graphic novel about a girl who meets the town which, who can’t really be a witch. Probably.
