The whole story line of the 39 Clues is a bit unbelievable since 2 children and an unrelated guardian manage to travel all over the world, with unlimited funds and escaping near death in every adventure. Yet, for a YA book, I find the characters enjoyable and continue to read the series.
Amy and Dan are going to Jamaica to find
the next clue. They find out that their rival, Eisenhower knows where
they're going and they start suspecting their closest friend, Nellie is
betraying them. When they get on the plane Nellie tells them what she's
doing but didn't tell them who she was working for.
On their way Amy and
Dan found a bear claw, a serpent medallion, a small silver snake that's
a nose ring, a strip of gold, and a dragon fang. These things were used
to open a special box and their new friend, Lester got that kind of box
for them but he sacrificed himself to prevent it from Amy and Dan's
worst enemy, Isabel. Nellie brought Amy and Dan and the box to the
person she was working for and that person told them to open the box in
less than one hour. They had managed to open it and then the person told
them that he was Fiske Cahill. Fiske helped them by telling them seven
clues and Amy and Dan started to trust Nellie.
They found out that the
next clue is in England and were told to win the clue hunt and bring all
of the Cahill family including Dan and Amy's enemy's together. After
that, they set off to England.
