About the book:
Mike and Amy Smith are nervous about moving from their nice house in Boston to a dilapidated old mansion in Falton, New Hampshire.  They know they’ll have to start the sixth and seventh grade not knowing anyone, and their new house is just plain creepy.  While searching their dusty attic, Mike and Amy uncover an old wooden chest with a mysterious lock.  Inside, they find magical red shirts that give them special powers.  Together with a new friend, Sam, Mike and Amy must figure out how to harness their newfound gifts while keeping them secret from their parents.  As their powers grow, they begin a search for two kids who had gone missing in the summer, pitting them against a powerful adversary with mystical powers of his own.  Will Mike and Amy be able to unlock the ancient mystery of the shirts?  And will they be able to find the missing children before it is too late?

My Take:
I really enjoyed this book.  It's a fun read.  I read it in the course of three days over this past weekend.  I didn't want to put it down.  This book is perfect for 8-12 year old children to read.  There are great life lessons to be learned in the book.  I had a hard time putting the book down, it's really interesting and keeps the reader engaged throughout the entire story.  If you have a child that loves to read they may have this one read in no time at all.  This is going to be part of a series with more adventures with Mike and Amy to come in the near future.  This book started out being bedtime stories that Kim used to tell his children when they were young.  Bryce Clark decided to honor his father by putting these stories down in a book that will be enjoyed by many.  I suggest you get this book for your children and give it as a gift to your children's friends.
