Book Review - Benjamin Pratt and the Keepers of the School: In Harm's Way
About the Book
The threat to the Keepers doubles in the fourth Keepers of the School adventure from Andrew Clements, the master of the school story.
Benjamin Pratt and his friends Jill and Robert are determined to save their school from destruction! But just when it seems they’ve finally gotten the upper hand over that awful Janitor Lyman, they’re caught completely off guard by his next move: Lyman has called in reinforcements, and suddenly Benjamin, Jill, and Robert find themselves dodging not one evil janitor, but two. That’s right: Lyman’s got himself a partner. And it quickly becomes clear that Wally, the new guy, is even more corrupt and menacing than Lyman.
Luckily, Ben’s team has been growing, too. Plus, thanks to the latest safeguard, they also have a secret fund of millions of dollars. But all the money in Massachusetts isn’t enough to stop Lyman and Wally, not when they’ve come this far, and not when they are just about to put the most harmful part of their plan into play. Could the next safeguard give the Keepers what they need—or has their battle to save the school already been sunk?
My Take on the Book
My family loves mysteries, and this book, as a part of a larger series, is a great one for any mystery lover! The author has created some very strong characters that you will find have great courage, but also great loyalty. That being said I was very impressed with how well this book also holds onto its' secrets when it comes to the mystery held within. There were twists and turns and the author keeps you guessing. The book also touches on some deeper topics such as the possible divorce of a child's parents. Best of all, was the relationships and bonds between the three main characters. The author truly creates deep characters that you can relate to, and ones that grow throughout the book too.
