A hint from their parents’ past puts Amy and Dan on the trail of secrets their grandmother Grace would NEVER have wanted them to know. Awful memories begin to crowd in on Amy, just as her enemies circle closer. How far would she go to protect Dan? How much of a Cahill is she prepared to be? Perhaps Grace was right – some secrets are better left buried.

The plot thickens, and the adventures are more and more dangerous. Some intriguing new characters appear. Too many coincidences in this book.
I have an assumption about the Madrigals and I really want to know if I’m right or not.

"There is Rakata."They could see it now, the island with the volcanic peak of Anak Krakatau, the child of Krakatau. Dan felt a chill along his spine.
It must have looked similar to this when Robert Cahill Henderson first arrived. It was flat on top, and the white smoke w

As they went on the clue hunt, the next stop was Sydney, Australia, but not Australia. It was just for misdirection. As usual book and events begins in a complicated range, so many places and so many people. It only gave clearing when it reached the end. Yet some parts needed still explanation unlike the previous books.
Also some parts made me totally confused. Thinking of Nellie, and also their dad's cousin Shep, I thought All of them, with Amy and Dan, would end up as a family. Like in the one

Amy was better in this book. A lot stronger I think.


Jude Watson I hate you for killing off Irina. She was always my favorite villain of this novel. And to make her death so damn heroic.

(end of spoiler)

But this is one of the few 39 clues book in which I actually got what was happening. A few books in the series were not capable of giving me that.I found this book quite satisfying.

I like the 39 Clues “In Too Deep” by Jude Watson because of the new characters they introduce and all the intense situation in each book. This is number six in the series.
Dan and Amy competition is getting bigger and harder to beat.

Dan and Amy are starting to learn more about their parent's past.Since their parents deaths, Dan and Amy are getting clues that they hid prior to dying. Amy and Dan are traveling under false Australian passports. They have to meet ground transport when they land in M

I'm going to give a generic review of the series. Basically because I'm lazy and don't want to write 39 reviews. Okay, 11.

We finally read Book 1. And then because we liked it so well, the entire series. One son (age 12) has read them all, the second son (also age 12) is on Book 2. And son #3 (age 8) will be starting as soon as he finishes his current book.

I thought the premise of this book very interesting. I loved how they integrated history and geography along with problem-solving skills and c
Wow. Wowowowowowowowowow.

What is up with these authors enjoying torturing me?!

Lemme take some deep breaths...I can't believe what Jude Watson did in this one. Seriously. SERIOUSLY?!

I think this one, out of the previous ones, was the best written. It's between this one and the first one by Rick Riordan. Both of them delved into the emotional parts of the narrative as well as giving you a grand picture of just how dangerous this clue hunt really is in the story.

Isabel "Cobra" is evil. EEEEEEEVIIII

This book was mainly that sometimes the reward is worth the risk. In this book and series the reward is nothing short of the chance of world domination, the reward making you the most powerful person in the world. Now they are in Australia, and with the help of their Uncle Shep, who they haven't seen since the death of their parents, they uncover more clues while avoiding the Kabras and the Holts. They go through many dangers and as usual dodge death many times. But they still stay in the hunt, ...more

This is one of my favourites by this saga so far!
Jude Watson did her magic again.
On of the thing that I prefered was learn more about the past of Amy and Dan's parents, but I also like learn more about others characters we know yet, like Irina, Nellie, Isabel Kabra...
oh, and yes: my ship between Amy and Ian still be here... I will start the seventh book right now!

Kay, so I doubt the ten-year-olds are having this problem, but Scholastic is publishing the books too quickly! I'm having trouble keeping up! I guess I should just be thankful I'm not trying to keep up with the Conspiracy 365 series by Gabrielle Lord. That's being published each month. (Although, when I was a teen, I was all about the Fearless series by Francine Pascal. But I quit that around book seven or eig
Time for another installment of Picky Bitch Reviews Books For Which She is Not the Target Audience. ;) Although I have to say, I was actually pretty impressed with this one for the most part! It's set mostly in Sydney and I like how the author actually seemed to know the Circular Quay and Rocks areas a bit and wasn't totally making it up. I do have to question their logic in taking the bus to Circular Quay though when there's a perfectly good and MUCH FASTER train :P I've done the bus myself whe ...more

Amy and Dan find themselves in Australia, where Dan delights in learning about the deadly animals before they find themselves connecting with a long-lost uncle. The meeting almost makes them want to forget about their quest and live a carefree life with him, but they both know it's not meant to be.

However, he might have information about their parents. They refuse to tell him anything about their quest because they don't want to put him in more dan

Amy and Dan continue their search for their sixth clue.Amy has been having flashbacks about when their parent's died. She had a flashback that she told the person that was holding her that she had koalas on her pajama shirt, and that gave the person who was holding her why her parents were gone so long. Amy,Dan and Nellie went to a country to try to find the clue there.When they got there they slept and woke up earlier than Nellie to go find the next clue,but they forgot to leave a note telling ...more

I waited a little bit for this book to come to me - and it was worth the wait.

I love how we end up in sunny Australia. I also like the addition to Dan and Amy's family, with another cousin (Shep) to help them find the 39 clues. I understand that they want to keep him out of danger, so they make up a few stories to throw him off track.

You also find out a bit more of Nellie's skills as an au pair. At the moment, I'm a bit worried as her as an au pair. She seems to be... too perfect in the 39 clu

I am still enjoying this series of books - although I do find it hard to remember all that's taken place in previous stories since the books seem to come out about every two months or so. anyway - it seems like the later books are getting better probably because we're finding out more clues. Here, Amy and Dan are in Australia, and they meet more Cahills, learn more about their parents, are almost killed (a number of times, of course), and find out some interesting things about Nellie. In the pre ...more

A terrific book, one of the best in the series. So many new layers to the tale were revealed and new questions asked to spur the story on. The educational stuff was woven into the story much better than in some previous books, with no sense of being lectured this time. There was some really fascinating stuff, like underground cities and wild Australian snack foods. The Clues mystery, the various Cahills, who to trust or distrust, their past and their parents all wove together into an exciting an ...more

And this is where I am officially ending this series. There is nothing that I can look forward to in these books. I can already guess what branch Amy and Dan are a part of and I know that no matter where they go, they will always find their way out of danger one way or another.
I can't stand the villains, and I am frustrated with every single character.
I don't like to leave a series unfinished, but when I read these books I can understand why so many children hate reading. This series makes rea

This book is thrilling adding a new opponent to the clue hunt and making harder than ever to find the clues and Amy and Dan find about a thrilling truth about their family. They have to go through many challenge to find the clue which is something so easy they could've guessed because it's so common.

One of my favorites so far. Cliffhanger like no other, bum bum bum. I won't spoil it. This is the series I read to my son at bedtime. He's old enough to read them on his own, but it's become our thing. I've enjoyed it, and so has he. Series has some great authors.

This was such a good book, definitely one of my favorites in the series. I have this weird fascination with the Cobras even though they're total booty-holes and I enjoyed that in this story, I kind of wish we had a bit more of Ian in here though. This book was really emotional and we got to look back at the night Amy and Dan's parents died and how they're dealing with it and I just really adored this book.

I thought that this book was really good because it had a lot of mysterious twists and turns.
Lather, rinse, repeat. Same story, different book. And I hate that (view spoiler) was killed off in this one; one of the more interesting characters in this series.
