If you like Troy Cummings' Notebook of Doom books, you'll love this new early chapter book series from David Bowles. Something is sinister in Gulf City, where cousins Malia, Ivan, and Dante are staying for the summer. On their way to the water park, a shortcut leads them to a street not recognized by any of their phones! Each character's skill set is put to good use to return to their aunt's house. A completion graphic at the end of each chapter provides a clear visual on a reader's progress through the book and offers encouraging remarks!
