I feel horrible that it took me so long to get to this book. It has been on my currently reading list but I kept getting stolen away from it. This is a spectacular book!!! (that's why I feel so bad.)

The Apothecary is written for young readers but the suspense and story line is so compelling I couldn't put it down. The story starts a little bit slow with Janie moving from California to London with her mom and dad, she starts at a new school and meets a boy named Benjamin, who wants to be a spy. In going along with him on his spying missions Janie and Benjamin find that the Apothecary (Bens dad) is in trouble and is kidnapped...

The story from there gets even better with suspense, secrets, danger, and more.

Great read for young adults, early readers, and anyone who loves an easy yet exciting young read.
