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.

  1. 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?

Hmmmm... what do you think?
