The 39 Clues Books 1-5: The Maze of Bones / One False Note / The Sword Thief / Beyond the Grave / The Black Circle

Minutes before she died Grace Cahill changed her will, leaving her descendants an impossible decision:

"You have a choice--one million dollars or a clue."

Grace is the last matriarch of the Cahills, the world's most powerful family. Everyone from Napoleon to Houdini is related to the Cahills, yet the source of the family power is lost. 39 clues hidden around the world will reveal the family's secret, but no one has been able to assemble them. Now the clues race is on, and young Amy and Dan must decide what's important: hunting clues or uncovering what REALLY happened to their parents.

The 39 Clues is Scholastic's groundbreaking series, spanning 10 adrenaline-charged books, 350 trading cards, and an online game where readers play a part in the story.

    Think about this what if your grandma died and made a video when she was young. What if you had to decide wether you would keep a million dollars or get the first clue. What if you now are competing against you rich family members. This is the 39 clues. You will love this book! Allistar stole the book Dan and Amy needed. The Starlings are in the hospital. Your mom and dad are dead and you have to live with your horrible Aunt Beatrice. Well... Not that awesome but the last book will probably have a suprise! I love this book. I'm in chapter nine and they are going to Paris. Jonah Wizard and his dad had the same idea. READ THIS BOOK!

        This book is the BEST! Dan and Amy have to make a very important decision: Take $1,000,000, or try to solve the 39 clues. The winner gets tons of power and money. There is only one winner and Amy and Dan are just kids. Spies will be trying to solve the clues. Should they take the $1,000,000?
