it was amazing

Cruz Coronado’s thirteenth birthday is fast approaching and he’s still on the hunt for the puzzle pieces his mother hid and left for him before she died. But the nefarious Nebula is also still after the puzzle pieces, and determined to destroy Cruz. Aunt Marisol has left the Orion (the Explorer Academy ship Cruz is studying on) to search for his missing father, and Cruz must stay behind and continue his search and his studies. And his search leads Cruz, Emmett, and Sailor to the ruins in Petra, Jordan. What will they find there? Will it take Cruz closer to uncovering the mystery behind Nebula and his mother’s death? Will he make it to his thirteenth birthday?

Trudi Trueit’s spectacular and cinematic middle-grade Explorer Academy series, continues with the thrilling and engaging third book, The Double Helix!

Once again, Trueit offers young readers a thrillingly fast-paced, expertly researched, utterly engrossing story that is simply unputdownable! Like books one and two in this series, The Double Helix takes readers on a breathtaking journey to faraway places, introduces the coolest tech; gadgets; science; and concepts, and encourages readers to use their creativity, think critically, and explore the world around them. Mystery, action, clever puzzles, captivating educational moments, relatable characters, and the cinematic illustrations all collide, taking readers on an unforgettable thrill ride and reading experience.

Cruz, Emmett, Sailor, Lani, and Bryndis continue to be a wonderfully diverse, capable, and likable group of young characters. Young readers will love getting to know these beloved characters even better in book three, while learning more interesting information about the baddies, as well as meeting some intriguing new characters.

There is so much about this series that I love- the clever mystery, the exciting adventure, the smart STEM elements, the awesome young characters- and The Double Helix is another compelling addition to this phenomenal series!
