The Tell Tale Start (YA)
Book #21 Read in 2013
The Tell Tale Start by Gordon McAlpine
Edgar and Allan are twins and the distant relations of Edgar Allan Poe. The twins are amazingly bright and are eerily connected to each other. A mad scientist wants to get a hold of the twins to explore and experiment with their intense connection. But will the twins, with some help from the famous author relative, be able to outsmart him?
This book was a cute, quick read; I finished it in one sitting. The twins are mischievous and entertaining. This book had a lot of humor in it and a good mystery. Loved Roderick Usher, the cat owned by the twins, and his ability and skill set that came in handy. I would especially recommend this book for a male reluctant read in upper elementary or middle school.
