Book Review - The Ambrose Deception

The Ambrose Deception

About the Book
Melissa is a nobody. Wilf is a slacker. Bondi is a show-off. At least that's what their middle school teachers think. To everyone's surprise, they are the three students chosen to compete for a ten thousand-dollar scholarship, solving clues that lead them to various locations around Chicago. At first the three contestants work independently, but it doesn't take long before each begins to wonder whether the competition is a sham. It's only by secretly joining forces and using their unique talents that the trio is able to uncover the truth behind the Ambrose Deception--a truth that involves a lot more than just a scholarship.

With a narrative style as varied and intriguing as the mystery itself, this adventure involving clever clues, plenty of perks, and abhorrent adults is pure wish fulfillment.

My Take on the Book
Emily Ecton has written an interesting and exciting chapter book which your child will enjoy. There is mystery and until almost the end of the book, the reader is still wondering how this will all end.
Melissa, Wilf, and Bondi are students at the same school. They are chosen to compete for a $10,000 scholarship. In order to win the scholarship they must solve three clues each. The story takes place in Chicago and the students find locations in Chicago to solve their clues.

As they begin their competition they work independently but something unusual happens. The students figure out that they are being scammed by two individuals who are the children of Enoch Ambrose. He was a millionaire who was supposed to have died. So they join forces as a team and things begin to happen.

Yes, supposed to have died. As the students begin to work together so they win the inheritance instead of just the $10,000, they find out that those helping and not helping them are not who they thought they were.

It is an exciting chapter book with lots of twists and turns. The students prove their teamwork wins and guess what,  Enoch Ambrose is not dead either!
