The Secret Keepers
    Eleven-year-old Reuben spends his days exploring, hiding, and practicing parkour among the abandoned buildings of the Lower Downs as a way to escape the rough times that have befallen him and his mom--but his discovery of an extraordinary antique pocket watch changes everything. When Reuben finds that the watch has the power to turn him invisible, he's propelled on the adventure of a lifetime.
    Now Reuben is being pursued by a group of dangerous men called the Directions, and someone--or something--ominously called The Smoke. They all want the watch, and with the help of new friends, it's up to Reuben to unravel the mysteries surrounding it and protect the city from evil.
    New York Times bestselling author Trenton Lee Stewart's latest novel will enthrall old and new fans alike with the twists and turns of an inventive and compelling adventure reminiscent of The Mysterious Benedict Society series.



When I first saw the Trenton Lee Stewart had an upcoming release, I immediately added it to my TBR, hardly even looking the the description. I read Stewart's The Mysterious Benedict Society series a couple months ago and absolutely loved them. Stewart writes in a quirky, mature, and endearing way that is simply captivating. Even though these are generally marketed to younger readers, the language, characters, and story are so ubiquitous that I see absolutely no reason why all ages wouldn't enjoy them.  Based on this experience, I have extremely high hopes for The Secret Keepers, and I think the plot for this book will be a lot of fun. (Also, can I just mention how much I love that cover? The colors and overall style are just gorgeous.)

What do you think about this upcoming release? What are your anticipated upcoming releases?
