The Stranger in the Medallion Loafers:the Adventures of Allen and Juan

*** 3 stars

Wandering Mystery...

This is an adventure story for kids. Allen and his neighbor, Juan, witness a bomb being planted in their school boiler room. They must alert someone. Sounds like a great premise for a book.

However, I was disappointed in the level of writing. Many times the author, who mainly writes in past tense, will suddenly insert a sentence in present tense. This leaves a feeling of confusion. The author seems to meander from one topic he wants to include to another, with the storyline getting bogged down(ex: chapter about learning how to fly a plane--what does all that detail really have to do with the mystery?)

This review is only my opinion, and others may find this book a favorite. I gratefully received an ebook from bookfun.org in exchange for an honest review.
