I am an adult reader, and I enjoy the Rex Zero books. This was also a fun, easy read depicting family dynamics within an interesting story of a boy’s struggle with constantly changing schools and having to make new friends because his family is frequently moving. He gets creative with this challenge while also dealing with a bully.

This book is a great book that has everything a great book needs: humor, suspense, mystery, and a kind of thing that pulls you right into it and makes it hard to drop because the pictures are so vivid in your head and makes it easier to visualize everything.
