Review: Mysteries. Spies. Action. That is the topic of this book, Greenglass House. Milo a regular boy that wonders about his past before he was adopted to his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Pine. Their family owns a hotel inn called The Greenglass House. It's a regular day, and Milo comes home from school. Glad that its winter vacation and that he is sure that no guests will come over. Then, he's surprised when he finds out that there are 7 guests! He had thought that he would have a relaxing vacation. Now, there is something that you must know about the Greenglass House. It's not a normal inn. If fact, most of the people that come are smugglers and illegal sellers. But, they don't mind. But these guests are definitely something else. One has blue hair, one has no emotion, and one even as snobby as a queen. Then, he finds a big, blue leather wallet that has a map inside. Then, another surprise! Meddy, the daughter of one of the maids, is interested in Milo's back life. As they try together to try to figure out the story behind the map, someone steals it and leaves a fake one! Now, they are in a hot pursuit of the thief AND the secrets behind the guests. Will Milo be able to step out of his comfort zone, or will they never know? I like Greenglass House because it teaches that sometimes, you have to be out of your comfort zone in order to do things. Milo is learning this when he has to work with someone he despises to uncover to truth to all these problems. I would recommend this book for 8 year olds to 12 year olds, and anybody who likes action or mysteries.
