Basically The Da Vinci Code for kids, and equally hard to put down (no matter how hard I tried). Orphan siblings Amy and Dan have to solve a "code" involving their famous family that will (supposedly) save the world. They end up in Paris (no trips to the Louvre, sadly), with their no-good relatives showing up at every turn to thwart Amy's and Dan's progress on the "code." Riordan is a pretty good author, and he knows how to keep things moving. I'm not proud to say this, but I am definitely curious to see what happens in the next book. I really think the marketing folks who came up with this whiffed on the cover art; this would have worked a lot better with Brett Helquist-esque illustrations than with photographs.
