SNEAK PEEK: The 39 Clues Medusa Plot

SneakPeek The 39 Clues Book 11, Vespers Rising is out in bookstores now, so it's already a great week, but there's more! We also have for you a SNEAK PEEK of the next 39 Clues book:

The 39 Clues: Cahills vs. Vespers Book 1: The Medusa Plot by Gordon Korman Medusa  

After the mysterious Vespers kidnap Cahills around the globe, they order Amy and Dan to steal a priceless painting in exchange for the hostages. The siblings rush to Italy to execute a heist that rivals the most famous art thefts in history. There's just one problem — the painting they steal is a fake. With the clock ticking, Amy and Dan have to track down the real painting before one of Cahill hostages pays the ultimate price. But Dan and Amy can't stop the Vespers alone.

Read the Prologue.

Nice, huh? Leave a Comment telling us what you think of the new book so far.

    Agreed i told my friends about the 39 Clues and they looked at me weirdly and said, “It’s soooo boring!” I couldn’t believe they said the 39 Clues are boring!
    Peace!
    Friends!
    Hope!

    I am addicted to the 39 clues!!! I love making different scenarios for different characters. I find it helps me sleep. Do we all agree 10 was the best book out of the first series? I try to tell my friends what 39 clues are about but it comes out like this: Solikeamyanddanarelikeorphansandthereare

    LOL, I like how on the cover, Medusa’s eyes are covered by the logo. Did anyone else notice that? The book sounds interesting! Can’t wait to read it!
    (P.s. don’t look into Medusa’s eyes! LOL ;-) )

    @Martin Yeah, there’s going to be a movie, but it’s going really slow. I thought that Steven Spielberg (fellow Janus, YEAH!) was going to direct it, but now I’m not so sure. Anyway, SO PSHYCHED (did I spell that right?) FOR MEDUSA PLOT! THE SUSPENSE IS KILLING ME!

    I have a reply to d. Well, remember how close Amy and dans parents came to winnign the 39 clues? Isabel wanted the poem that could possibly win the hunt. She didn’t want them to die, she wanted them hand over the clues and poem. Thats why.

    Ian kabra’s mom killed amy and dan’s parents because they were madrigals and they refused to tell her why they went to Australia, and wouldn’t give them the clue she wanted.

    AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!! (pant) Sorry about that. Anyway I read all the 39 Clues books, but I did not find them as GREAT as everyone said they were. Don’t get me wrong it was okey, and I am very excited that they are doing another series. I thought that there were many lose ends when they finnished the last book, anyone agree with me?

    I absolutely LOVE the The 39 Clues series. I even wrote a book review on it in my school’s newspaper. I have two of its cards packs and have every one of the books except for the newest one which I WILL read! This one also seems VERY interesting.

    If anyone reads Warriors, can you please be friends with me? Anyway, I read Warriors, and there are 5 series(the reason why I’m writing this, is because Warriors, relates to this, because they both have 2 series or over.)They are actually trying to make a 6th series! I think that Erin Hunter(the author of Warriors) is an amazing person!
