The finale to the New York Times bestselling Secret Series!

I always feared this day would come. A secret is meant to stay secret, after all. And now we've come to this: the fifth and final (I swear!) book in my saga of secrets.

A class trip to the local natural history museum turns dangerous, or perhaps deadly--and I don't mean in the bored-to-death way--when Cass accidentally breaks a finger off a priceless mummy. Forced to atone for this "crime" of vandalism, Cass and her friends Max-Ernest and Yo-Yoji go to work for the mummy exhibit's curator, only to be blamed when tragedy strikes. To clear their names--and, they hope, to discover the Secret--the trio must travel deep into a land of majestic pyramids, dusty tombs, mysterious hieroglyphs, and the walking dead. Egypt? Or somewhere much stranger . . .

In the midst of it all, the Secret still lurks. You're out there, reading and talking about it, and now my life--and chocolate supply--is in the greatest danger yet. So please, with a cherry on top, I'm begging you: you have to stop this!

    This book is the last book of the secret series (as you obviously know). In this book Yo-yoji, Max-Earnest, and Cass come to Las Vegas in an animal mummy crate. I won't spoil anything else, so you need to read the book if you are curious to see what happens!

      Wow. An amazing ending to an amazing series! You Have to Stop This is mysterious, funny and makes you anticipate the ending more and more throughout the book. I can't wait to read-or write- Write This Book!

        Love this book and all the others. I don't know which one is the best one yet. I love this series I just am kind of annoyed with this guy because he never tells us the SECRET! But I still love this book and the rest of them in the series.

              There's gotta be another other than the DIY. because: 1. Cass still doesn't know the secret. 2. We don't know for sure if Yo-Yoji likes Cass. 3. We don't know where Pietro is. 4. Even Though Dr. L's dead, Ms. Muavius is still alive and well. She's still a threat! 5. What about Amber?

                    I totally LOVE the secret series, it's super funny but it's mysterious too! Then there's tons of cool, magical things and creatures! The book is about two boys, Yo-Yoji, Max-Ernest (the boy with 2 names) and one girl, Cassandra, and on a trip to a museum, Cassandra accidentally breaks a finger off a mummy, and this led them to an adventure, and in the end of the book, they found out The Secret, a secret that was hunted down for centuries.

                      Pseudonymous Bosch IS such a creative writer! He/She should get an Emmy or some kind of award for this series!
