The second book in The 39 Clues series is here! Amy and Dan travel to Vienna and Venice in search of their second clue. But dangers lurk in every corner. Check out One False Note by Gordon Korman.

The Inheritance

When Amy and Dan Cahill’s grandmother passed away, she left behind a trail of clues—39 clues to be exact. And instead of accepting their one million dollar inheritance, Dan and Amy, along with many greedy members of the Cahill family, took the first in a series of clues that would take them on a dangerous journey around the world. The first team to solve the 39 clues will become the most important and powerful people in the world.

Following Mozart

In the first book, The Maze of Bones, Dan, Amy and Nellie (their punk nanny) traveled to Paris, following the life and accomplishments of Benjamin Franklin—a descendant of the Cahill family. In One False Note, the kids follow Mozart’s trail to Vienna where they discover that it’s not Mozart himself, but his sister, Nannerl, who holds the secret to the next clue.

No Time for Sight-Seeing

Then it’s off to Venice where Dan and Amy have little time to enjoy the beautiful canals. They must focus on the task at hand if they’re to escape with the next clue and their lives. Just when Amy and Dan think they’ve outwitted the competition, their power-hungry relatives show up for a piece of the prize.

The Bottom Line

One False Note is action-packed from start to finish. Amy and Dan are stronger, smarter and more prepared to do anything to find the next clue—even if it means breaking a few laws. Unlike the first book which was written by Rick Riordan, One False Note was written by Gordon Korman, best known for his many young-adult series’, including On the Run, Everest and Kidnapped. He’s also written many solo books for young-adults and teens, such as Schooled and Son of the Mob.

    my quote is REALLY LONG...   "strength is the only thing that matters in this world. everything else is just an illusion for the weak... stop pretending! knock off that sentimental rubbish! harden your heart! you fool! you have to put aside your mercy... then you might.. MIGHT actually stand a chance! stop trying to convince yourself! HOW DARE YOU GIVE UP! Reach down deep! Take some pride in your heritage! There is only ONE certainty in life... A STRONG PERSON STANDS ABOVE AND CONQUERS ALL! There is no denying what you are... Just wait and see. The more we fight, the more powerful we become!! DON'T TELL ME YOU'RE STILL PREACHING THAT MERCY NONSENSE, THAT MEANS YOU'RE STILL HOLDING BACK! NO MORE WEAK HEARTED EXCUSES! THE STRONGEST WILL FIND A WAY TO SURVIVE, AND THE WEAKEST SHALL PERISH! is that the kind of fate you want for yourself?! ENOUGH! listen to me! You keep running with that self righteous look on your face! Pitiful... Its brute strength that detirmins the outcome of a battle, not goodness! WHY ARE WE SUBJECTING OURSELVES TO THIS? You've always been like this.. you show MERCY to everyone... Even your fiercest enemy's... live every moment of everyday for the singular purpose to meet the next challenge... Even if its bigger than you! test your limits.. push futher beyond! Push yourself to be the strongest there is...."   From dragonball z, vegeta
