Review: Cassidy Jones and the Secret Formula (Cassidy Jones Adventures #1) by Elise Stokes

Fourteen-year-old Cassidy Jones wakes up the morning after a minor accident in the laboratory of a world-renowned geneticist to discover that her body has undergone some bizarre changes. Her senses, strength, and speed have been radically enhanced. After exploring her newfound abilities, Cassidy learns that the geneticist, Professor Serena Phillips, is missing and that foul play is suspected. Terrified that her physical changes and Professor Phillips' disappearance are somehow connected, Cassidy decides to keep her strange transformation a secret. That is, until she meets the professor's brilliant and mysterious fifteen-year-old son, Emery. An unlikely duo, they set out to find Emery's mother, who is key in explaining Cassidy's newly acquired superpowers. Their lives are put at risk when they find themselves embroiled in a dangerous, action-packed adventure. Soon they are forced to confront a maniacal villain willing to do anything- including murder -to reach his own ambitious goals

This book is a great book for young adults.  Stokes did a great job in her first book of making it interesting and easy to read.  It is a very simple book that anyone could read, and it grabs the attention of the reader.  It is, however, very slow to begin, and very predictable.  It is a fun book for those just beginning chapter books and it has an end that makes you want more!

  1. I read this book too and I loved it!!!! but i don't agree that its predictable. The only predictable part is Cassidy getting superpowers.
