CASSIDY JONES AND THE SECRET FORMULA


This is the first book in the Cassidy Jones Adventures.  Elise Stokes does an amazing job for setting the stage in this young adult series.  Cassidy Jones is a fourteen year old girl who develops special abilities after an accident.  With her new heightened senses, strength and abilities, she partners with Emery Phillips, a fifteen year old genius.  Together they set out to find their kidnapped parents.  The story is quick moving, and leaves you wanting more.  Elise Stokes is a wonderful storyteller.  Her characters are rich, believable, as well as relatable.  She eloquently uses descriptive language to convey what the characters are feeling without overdoing it.  There is adventure, excitement and overall enjoyment with this read.  As the relationship and trust between Cassidy and Emery grows throughout the story, so does the empathy and likeability develop between the reader and the characters.  Stokes leaves the reader with anticipation.
