    If I had one word to describe this middle grade book that took me by surprise, it would be GRIPPING.I haven t seen much of the suspense genre in a kid s category Especially Christian suspense for kids What a niche Basically, I enjoyed this read, because it was something different And new.To be honest, there s actually some pretty creepy stuff that happens Allegedly, a girl may have died in the lake, right in front of the four main characters eyes Later on, the four kids go through var If I had one word to describe this middle grade book that took me by surprise, it would be GRIPPING.I haven t seen much of the suspense genre in a kid s category Especially Christian suspense for kids What a niche Basically, I enjoyed this read, because it was something different And new.To be honest, there s actually some pretty creepy stuff that happens Allegedly, a girl may have died in the lake, right in front of the four main characters eyes Later on, the four kids go through various stages of not even wanting to be in the water because her body could be floating around or laying somewhere on the lake bed On top of the idea of murder, someone is out to get the kids Or so it may seem, as a string of dangerous coincidences keep happening Like warning messages Not fun during your two week summer vacation.Not only that, but there s some other interesting elements in the book I loved how the author really brought in a problem that one of kids was having the fear of being under water It was something that Cooper hadn t had a problem with before, and yet the panic rose each time he dipped in the lake This is something he really tries to overcome, and he strives to dig out the dark, lurking thoughts to get rid of the frightening experiences he s going through Cooper doesn t work on his fear it just by himself though, he has his friends, his dad, and GodHe couldn t do it alone But he wouldn t be alone God was real and powerful and loving He believed that, didn t he Yes, Cooper would never be alone God was with him and God was big enough to handle whatever lay below the surfaceThe main reason why I can really feel confident in recommending this book as a Christian is the godly view that is incorporated into the plot The spiritual content is by no means overwhelming, but it s there, sometime subtly, sometimes showing up in conversation, or when the characters are praying, etc It shows their faith in a good light, just as if it s a normal part of everyday life just right.Cons There was one one scene where a boy is physically fighting with his father He may have had reason to do so, but some parents may or may not approve of the scene Chapter 29 Only one other element caught me off guard, just slightly one of the villains in the story is depicted as the devil in one scene, especially when it sayshe only need a pair of horns for the effect to be completeChapter 99.Anyways, it s definitely an intriguing book, and not just for kids either There are moments that are action packed, even with bullets flying to keep you on your toes Thanks to NetGalley for a free copy of this book I was not required to post a review.

    I truly do love this series, and am so glad that I got them all together in a bundle , took the chance on it and was NOT disappointed though have to admit this gand have the worst luck ever , you can t help but like the protagonists and root for them esp Copper, and the way the character of Lunk was developed was a true heart melterI won t say no to a 4th book, but that would be stretching their bad luck I guess. the only drawback is sometimes the paraphrasing gets too much, it might then I truly do love this series, and am so glad that I got them all together in a bundle , took the chance on it and was NOT disappointed though have to admit this gand have the worst luck ever , you can t help but like the protagonists and root for them esp Copper, and the way the character of Lunk was developed was a true heart melterI won t say no to a 4th book, but that would be stretching their bad luck I guess. the only drawback is sometimes the paraphrasing gets too much, it might then the book few pages, but I guess it is how it goes in real life , the mind wanders round and round with what bothers it

    Oh my goodness this was so confusing and intense I had no idea what was going on for the first 2 3 of the book Which made me really excited to keep reading because I needed to figure out what happened I am really sad this is the last book, but I loved the way the author wrapped up the story series I definitely think that if you read the first book, you should finish the series because it wrapped up some loose ends and answered a lot of my questions So, I loved the book, I got really into it Oh my goodness this was so confusing and intense I had no idea what was going on for the first 2 3 of the book Which made me really excited to keep reading because I needed to figure out what happened I am really sad this is the last book, but I loved the way the author wrapped up the story series I definitely think that if you read the first book, you should finish the series because it wrapped up some loose ends and answered a lot of my questions So, I loved the book, I got really into it, and read it super fast I highly recommend it to anyone over the age of 11 12 as it would probably scare anyone younger pretty badly

    A christian, gritty, murder mystery novel, with quaint characters and tangible dread.I give it an 8.6 out of 10, and an age range of 11 because it is a murder mystery after all.One of the trademarks of a Code of Silence novel, is an explosive, abrupt beginning, and Below The Surface does not disappoint The hooker pounces on you and charges the plot with suspense.Another trademark of these books is an extreme sense of reality Everything feels so plausibly real, and it s refreshing But it A christian, gritty, murder mystery novel, with quaint characters and tangible dread.I give it an 8.6 out of 10, and an age range of 11 because it is a murder mystery after all.One of the trademarks of a Code of Silence novel, is an explosive, abrupt beginning, and Below The Surface does not disappoint The hooker pounces on you and charges the plot with suspense.Another trademark of these books is an extreme sense of reality Everything feels so plausibly real, and it s refreshing But it also works against the story, with some portions feeling lengthy and boring, and some chapters feeling altogether useless in advancing the plot This is where the book became dull to read, but was worth wading through.I think, that the most real part of the book, was the characters Their personalities were not particularly unique, but well developed Sometimes the characters stubbornness to listen to their friend irked me, and it became annoying to have two characters who would not accept what was right in front of them, for most of the book But their witty banter, and tightly bonded relationship was entertaining to read in a timeless way.Okay now I come to Cooper s fear attacks It was an interesting conflict to read, and the arc was okay, it just didn t blow me away What was amazing though, was the climax, and how the only way Cooper could beat the fear, was through God No allegories Bringing Christianity into novels, can be hard, but this book handled it perfectly All the messaging was biblical and not preached at the reader Certain characters constantly prayed, and it wasn t in an awkward way, it fit perfectly.The suspense near the beginning, and the second half of the book, was incredible The author did a great job of making the dread was ever present Surprisingly, when I look back, there are few action scenes, andjust scenes that were so exciting that they seemed like action.Up until the second to last chapter, it was manifestly tense, and I loved it I ended the book, with a smile on my face, glad that I read it Below The Surface is not a masterpiece, but it s a great thriller, and a fun read

    The final book in the Code of Silence series For this one, there is a little background information from the first and second books that you wil need to really understand everything going on in this book unlike how you can read the second book without having read the first book although you should read them as a series anyway This book is just as riveting as the first and second books and is SO GOOD I finished it in about 2 days The books definitely have some darker elements but this adds The final book in the Code of Silence series For this one, there is a little background information from the first and second books that you wil need to really understand everything going on in this book unlike how you can read the second book without having read the first book although you should read them as a series anyway This book is just as riveting as the first and second books and is SO GOOD I finished it in about 2 days The books definitely have some darker elements but this adds to the suspense and how you sympathize with the characters Very fun, interesting, and great read

    I loved this book so much, I couldn t put it down You will like it if you enjoy suspense, mystery One thing I liked about it is that there s no romance in any of the books in the series I personally find romance to be distracting from the plot, but the author replaces what could have been romantic subplots with character developement Definitely read the rest of the series to add to your reading experience The book is scary, but it s not really gory, if there are parents reading.Recommended I loved this book so much, I couldn t put it down You will like it if you enjoy suspense, mystery One thing I liked about it is that there s no romance in any of the books in the series I personally find romance to be distracting from the plot, but the author replaces what could have been romantic subplots with character developement Definitely read the rest of the series to add to your reading experience The book is scary, but it s not really gory, if there are parents reading.Recommended age 10

    I think that it should ve included somethingabout Cooper s fear and whether or not it stopped I also think that Cooper or one of the others should ve been sucked under and saw Wendy Pom Pom s dead body and that was what was causing Cooper s panic attacks If not that something else should ve been included about the thing underwater that could ve been the thing causing his panic attacks Basically I just think that Tim Shoemaker should ve includedabout Cooper s panic attacks when h I think that it should ve included somethingabout Cooper s fear and whether or not it stopped I also think that Cooper or one of the others should ve been sucked under and saw Wendy Pom Pom s dead body and that was what was causing Cooper s panic attacks If not that something else should ve been included about the thing underwater that could ve been the thing causing his panic attacks Basically I just think that Tim Shoemaker should ve includedabout Cooper s panic attacks when he went underwater in the dark
