Description

The second book in the Greystone Secrets series from the master of plot twists, Margaret Peterson Haddix—perfect for fans of A Wrinkle in Time and The City of Ember!

Until their mother vanished, the Greystone kids—Chess, Emma, and Finn—knew nothing about the other world.

Everything is different there. It's a mirror image, except things are wrong. Evil. Their mother tried to fix it, but she and an ally got trapped there along with Ms. Morales, their friend Natalie's mom.

Now the four kids—brave Chess, smart Emma, kind Finn, and savvy Natalie—are determined to rescue everyone.

To do so, they have to go back: into the other world, where even telling the truth can be illegal.

But in such a terrifying place, Chess doubts he can ever be brave enough. Despite all her brains, Emma can't seem to break the code. With everything spiraling out of control, Finn has to pretend he's okay.

And for Natalie, the lies of the other world include some she wishes were actually true. What if she's gotten so used to lying she no longer knows what to believe?

The second book in the Greystone Secrets series, The Deceivers, by bestselling author Margaret Peterson Haddix, continues the twisty and suspenseful story of the Greystone kids and examines the power of the truth—or a lie—to alter lives, society, and even an entire reality.

        Margaret Peterson Haddix grew up on a farm in Ohio. As a kid, she knew two girls who had the exact same first, middle, and last names and shared the same birthday—only one year apart—and she always thought that was bizarre.

        As an adult, Haddix worked as a newspaper reporter and copy editor in Indiana before her first book, Running Out of Time, was published. She has since written more than forty books for kids and teens, including the Greystone Secrets series, the Shadow Children series, the Missing series, the Children of Exile series, and lots of stand-alones. Haddix and her husband, Doug, now live in Columbus, Ohio, where they raised their two kids. You can learn more about her at www.haddixbooks.com.

        Four kids rush to rescue their families from the clutches of a tyrannical government in an alternate dimension. In series opener The Strangers (2019), siblings Finn, Emma, and Chess escaped the parallel world into which their mother disappeared, but they still failed to reunite their family. During their desperate flight from danger, the Greystone siblings' friend Natalie Mayhew lost her mother there, too. Their only path between worlds, a lever stuck to the wall of the Greystones' basement, broke. Now all four kids must work together to reopen the tunnel to a dangerous dystopia and decipher the secret code that Kate Greystone left for her children to solve. This sequel never slows in pace, thrusting the characters into new, treacherous mysteries. In this sequel, Haddix explores themes of honesty and love as the children compare their experiences to those in the alternate universe. Natalie struggles with her relationship with her parents, who are divorced in one world and married in the other. The third-person perspective shifts chapter by chapter among the characters; the Greystone kids present white, and Natalie is biracial, with a Mexican mom and white dad. At times, the setting is logistically disorienting, such as the maze of secret passages and the multilevel glass-roofed event space somehow hidden behind a curtain in the basement of Natalie's house in the alternate world. A perilous, high-action plot--with a cliffhanger. (Science fiction. 8-12)

        Grades 5-8 It's time to dust off your memory of Greystone Secrets: The Strangers (2019) because this sequel picks up right where it left off. Though Haddix peppers in enough reminders to jog most readers' memories, those new to the series should definitely start at the beginning. The three Greystone siblings (Chess, Emma, and Finn) and their friend Natalie are desperately trying to crack the code that will help them save their mothers from the hostile parallel world where they are imprisoned. A breakthrough lands the kids in Other-Natalie's house?the parallel world mirrors much of the protagonists' world, including the people living in it?on the eve of a large political soiree, leaving them little time to stage a rescue and figure out whom in this world they can trust. Readers will have a ball scurrying through the secret passageways as the tense caper unfolds, but Haddix also gives plenty of page time to the kids' inner musings. Thus readers are ensured a rich mystery-adventure that will activate their brains and sense of empathy.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2020, American Library Association.)

        Gr 4-7-In the sequel to The Strangers, Haddix reintroduces 12-year-old Chess (Rochester), 10-year-old Emma, eight-year-old Finn, and their neighbor and partner-in-crime, 13-year-old Natalie. This mystery and science fiction adventure features sleuthing reminiscent of Lemony Snicket's "A Series of Unfortunate Events." Packed with the resourceful ingenuity of kids cracking codes and traveling to other worlds to save their beloved mothers, this installment picks up where the Greystone children's mom is found but still trapped in the other world, an evil world mirroring their own, with Natalie's mom. Haddix weaves a dystopian tale about government control, prison reform, fair trials, scapegoats, and the importance of believing people are innocent before proven guilty. Each chapter is told from a different point of view. It is definitely a prerequisite to read book one. The narrative brings up more questions than it solves. How did the people in the other world become bad? Why don't the kids wonder if they themselves are the impostors of the other world, and not the other way around? Why all the surveillance? VERDICT This adventurous sequel paves the way for a trilogy where the families save both worlds.-Laura Dooley-Taylor, Lake Zurich Middle School North, IL
