Review of The Right Hand Rule by R.M. Clark

Read for: Requested Review
Synopsis: "Amy, Amanda, Marshall, and Ziggy expect their middle school to be empty on Saturday morning so they can get ready for the regional science fair. They don't expect a botched experiment to attract a horde of time-displaced ancient Mayans when their unusual science advisor, Frederick Froth, goes missing.

The four must use their unique science skills and work together as they grapple with a Mayan god, the Dark Rift, and the principles of science to rescue Mr. Froth."

My Review:  I have enjoyed the books by Clark that I have read, and found then to have a wide range of interests for Middle Grade Readers. This one will definitely appeal to certain MG readers with an interest in science. For me it was a little confusing, that maybe because I am not the target audience and it has been ages since I have had to present a science project or even taken a science class. With that said it is still an exciting adventure for young readers and will appeal to both gender readers.
My Rating: I think it was just me that didn't click with this book, I think it will appeal to science interested MG readers as they will be in the peak of their science fair and project years. I give this book a rating of Two Paws and a Stump Wag for me personally but as I said others will find it much more interesting.
This book was sent to me by the author in exchange for an honest review.

  1. I feel this way too many times about books. It doesn't really appeal to me but I know that it would to others.

    1. I find that especially applies to books geared towards a particular age level. I know I probably would have thoroughly enjoyed this book when I was in school, especially because I was really into science.
