Description

The Keepers of the School are back-and the stakes are even higher.

Time is ticking as the countdown to Ben Pratt's school's total demolition continues. Ben has been given a handful of clues that could help them save the school, but they are all written in maritime riddles. "After five bells sound, time to sit down." What the heck does that mean? It's hard to know where to begin when Ben and Jill don't even know what they are looking for. All Lyman, the snake posing as the school janitor, needs to know, though, is that they are looking, and that could mean the end of the 30-million-dollar development deal that pays his salary. (Which, by the way, is MUCH larger than a typical janitor makes.) As Lyman lurks in the shadows-and sometimes not in the shadows-Ben and Jill have to add another to-do to their list of things to accomplish in the next twenty-one days: (1) Figure out the clues left by past Keepers of the School Groups, (2) figure out how these clues will help them save the school, and (3) stay one step ahead of Lyman. That's the mission…which seems, at times, impossible.

The second installment in this riveting and mysterious six-book series is as action-packed as the first one, culminating in a faceoff between Ben and Lyman. "After five bells sound, time to sit down" makes for a good riddle, but Ben also knows when it's time to stand up…for Oakes School and for himself.

    Second book in series by andre Clements. Just as good as book numer one as the quest to save the school from a wrecking ball heats up. Great recommendation for a summer read

    I liked this book better than the first one, but I'm still not sure it's the series for me. I like Clements' older books much better.

    Jonathan Nasaw has always had a way of sucking me in to each story he tells, and this one was no different. Perfect dialogue, an entertaining story with just enough twists, engaging characters, a believable trajectory...overall, this was everything I could really ask for in a crime novel, and I loved every minute.As ever, Nasaw is a clever and entertaining writer, and I'd recommend him to anyone who just wants to escape into a good suspense/crime story, at times horrific, and at times just funny and good. Recommended.
