Get Ready For “The Ambrose Deception” Available February 13th

If you are the parent or grandparent of a middle school age child, I want to tell you about the new release of a fast-paced, mind-boggling, middle grade mystery-adventure that is THE AMBROSE DECEPTION (On Sale February 13, 2018) by Emily Ecton,

Book Summary

Melissa is a nobody. Wilf is a slacker. Bondi is a show-off. At least that’s what their middle school teachers think. To everyone’s surprise, they are the three students chosen to compete for a ten thousand-dollar scholarship, solving clues that lead them to various locations around Chicago. At first the three contestants work independently, but it doesn’t take long before each begins to wonder whether the competition is a sham. It’s only by secretly joining forces and using their unique talents that the trio is able to uncover the truth behind the Ambrose Deception–a truth that involves a lot more than just a scholarship.
With a narrative style as varied and intriguing as the mystery itself, this adventure involving clever clues, plenty of perks, and abhorrent adults is pure wish fulfillment. This clue-based scavenger hunt is perfect for fans of Escape from Mr. Lemoncello’s Library.

Booklist raves that THE AMBROSE DECEPTION is: “A rollicking adventure, a Westing Game–style mystery, and a heartwarming reminder that anyone can be greater than the sum of their parts.” Readers will be on the edge of their seats as an Amazing Race-style competition among three kids unfolds. With clever clues, a surprising twist, and quirky characters, this fast-paced adventure with, is sure to intrigue readers who enjoy solving puzzles.
