The Art Of Secrets by James Klise

The art of secrets, James Klise, Sheila DeChantal, Book Journey

 

When the Khan’s family home burns to the ground, Saba Khan’s high school teachers and classmates come to the rescue by planning a fund-raiser to help the family get back on their feet from this devastating loss.  When a piece of art is found abandoned in an alley way and donated to the fund-raiser, later to be found out to be rare and worth thousands, battles begin…

who should receive the money raised from the art piece?

The finders of the piece?

The school?

Or does it go to the Khan’s?

 

When the art turns up missing from the gym where it was being stored, fingers are pointed and tongues accuse.

 

 

 

Written at a middle grade perspective, Saba Khan, our main protagonist goes through all emotions while in the midst of the fire crisis including hurt and including love when a popular boy turns his attention to her.

With the story being told from different perspectives including the Principal of the school, Saba’s boyfriend, and classmates this book in audio format is a delight to the ears.

I didn’t love this story, but I did enjoy it.

    On occasion, I really enjoy reading middle grade books. This sounds like a good book.

  2. I’ve been on the hunt for books for my 13 year old son. This might fit.

  3. I really like some middle grade books, but it hadn’t occurred to me to do them in audio, for some reason!

  4. I think that my daughter would enjoy this.

  5. Sounds like a fun story. I like those kinds of questions, who has the right to the money. Pity it was okay but no more than that.

  6. I like middle grade books, but for some reason this one doesn’t call to me.

  7. I tend to listen to more YA books that actually read the books. Not sure if this one appeals to me though.

  8. were the different perspectives told by different voices as well?
    or a single narrator characterizing multiple people ?
    sounds like an interesting story of greed and its impact.. and a bit of mystery?
