In If You're Reading This, It's Too Late there is a girl named Cass and a boy named Max-Ernest that have had an adventure and have found out about the Terces Society. Cass gets a note and Max-Ernest finds out that the note means they are supposed to meet someone at 12 p.m. on dock 3. They go to dock 3 at 12 p.m. when they are at a field trip at the ocean with their teacher Mr. Needleman. They find a wonderful ship with a man that says he Pietro Bergamo, a magician and member of the Terces Society. But it turns out that the man is Dr. L and part of the Midnight Sun. Cass and Max-Ernest get tied up in a dark room under the boat's ground level. Max-Ernest unties the rope later on. They find the stolen Sound Prism which is a weird ball that carries sounds and take it with them. Cass and Max-Ernest quietly go back up when Mr. Needleman comes and helps them go on a speedboat. Mr. Needleman turns out to be Owen, a member of the Terces Society. Owen brings them to land and with his car home. But Cass and Max-Ernest go to the Museum of Magic to give the Sound Prism to Pietro Bergamo. They see strange things and finally meet Pietro and a few other people part of the Terces Society. Cass is told to take the Sound Prism back with her home. Cass and Max-Ernest get some papers that give them information about the Sound Prism and homunculus. They go to Whisper Lake, the place where Cass keeps on dreaming about with Cass's grandparents and Yo-Yoji, a boy from school. They call the Homunculus with the Sound Prism and secretly take him with them in a backpack. But when they are back and at the Magic Museum the homunculus has disappeared. A few days later Cass, Max-Ernest and Yo-Yoji go to a concert of the daughters of a woman part of the Midnight Sun. The homunculus comes and Cass and the homunculus get caught and driven back to Whisper Lake. The Terces Society members and Max-Ernest and Yo-Yoji come and fight against the Midnight Sun. A big boulder falls and crushes the homunculus.

Cass and Max-Ernest do some very risky things. They never know if someone is part of the Terces Society or the Midnight Sun. The Sound Prism seems very mysterious because it doesn't look special but can carry sounds and is wanted because it hes been stolen. The Homunculus is very selfish and dangerous because he eats humans when he doesn't like them. It is funny when he annoys Cass, Max-Ernest and Yo-Yoji by always being hungry. It is very sad that the homunculus dies. He was a nice guy and cared for Cass.
