Soooo fun! I just finished it. Theresa Caswell Jensen had me sitting there flipping pages rapidly for an hour trying to guess the end of the mystery. I did not guess right.... It’s a page turner. Students are really going to like this one.
Wow! This is yet another great book by Theresa Jensen. It is an amazing mystery that surprised me by how much plot and intrigue that Theresa can fit into just 13 chapters! The storyline will not let you put the book down. I had to extend a couple classes' FVR time because I wanted to keep reading myself! It will keep you and your students on edge because of how craftily the author builds the suspense at the core of the story. What a great read in any language!
Do your students a favor and add it to your classroom library now.
I loved reading this book! While I could not figure out the clues myself (has everything to do with my problem-solving skills and patience and NOT with the language!!!), readers will be intrigued and will continue to read to see if they can solve the mystery.
Theresa Jensen understands the language learner and the need to keep language accessible. But she also is very gifted in storytelling!
This novel is written for Spanish learners, but it reads like a a high-level mystery, with plenty of twists and turns, making a compelling read for students. The chapters alternate the point of view from ÉL to ELLA...and you will not know who can be trusted until the end. A really fun read, where the reader forgets they are learning language and just want to see what happens next.
