wanted this one to be better :(

The Inventor's Secret (The Inventor's Secret, #1)

The Inventor’s Secret

By: Andrea Cremer

Genre: YA Steampunk

Pages: 368

Published: 2014

Read: August

1.5 out of 5

I am surprised this is a nominee for teens’ top ten. Not only did I find missing words in several sentences (maybe teens don’t care or notice that), but also found 3/4th of the book very boring. The main mystery of the book was intriguing and held my interest, but all the side plots were so blah it was hard to continue through the book. There is a love triangle that isn’t resolved by end and will probably continue into book #2, The Conjurer’s  Riddle.  However, that is the only real cliff hanger in the book. I am interested in hearing my teens’ opinions, but I definitely won’t be reading sequel.
