Stronger together .
It’s only the third week of school and already the Secret Tortoises feel their personal battles are far more difficult than their ability to handle them individually. Marco’s class treasurer campaign is significantly undermined by antagonist Finn Sander’s targeted pandemonium. Bennett’s goodwill sacrifice for the school band, results in unexpected negative consequences for his best friend Marco and the Secret Tortoises. Kaleigh’s masterplan to overcome an aggressive rival’s evil plot, is on the verge of being thwarted. Joaquin successfully rebounds to the vicious backlash following his error in the final seconds of the first home game, but he now faces a much more dire emotional crisis. And Isabella is conflicted on multiple levels as she sets off to accomplish an impossible task during her week long audition ordeal. These challenges, along with numerous twists and turns that thread through the cliques, clubs and daily interactions at Riverrun Academy, becomes catalysts that alter the playing field for the school community and the Secret Tortoises… leaving readers on the edge of their seats as they begin to feel that they too attend Riverrun.


The Covert Influencer of Sleepy Hollow appeals to readers who appreciate unforeseen outcomes and powerful villains. In this third book of the series, the five main characters get more than they bargained for but are aided by unexpected allies. A secret weapon, nature itself, emerges to revitalize, strengthen, and guide them. This book offers a refreshing approach to success and failure, one that encourages young people to make positive choices and find alternatives when things don’t work out as expected.

My daughter and I have been reading this series. I really recommend it if you are looking for your children to get interested in politics and history. All of the sudden my hashtag happy Instagram kid wants to run for class president!
