Kid View: Look Into My Eyes by Lauren Child (Ruby Redfort series, book #1)
An epic introduction to the six book Ruby Redfort series! I absolutely loved this book so much, it is definitely in the top of my Xav’s Favs list. I think my favorite part is when Ruby has to go on the mini quest to figure out the code/riddle that the mysterious caller had given her, because you don’t know the answers or how she’s going to figure out, it was really engaging. I absolutely 100 percent recommend this book to young adult AND middle grades fans!
Look Into my Eyes by Lauren Child is a breath-taking novel that will suck you into its pages and transport you into Ruby’s life. It is about a thirteen year old girl who gets accepted into a super-secret agency that solves mysteries and crimes undetected. She is a genius and an epic code-breaker! My favorite character is, wait for it….. Clancy Crew because he is such a loyal friend to Ruby, I’m not joking, he would be tortured and hurt and dying before he let any secrets slip. Amazing character! And of course his name, Clancy Crew….. Nancy Drew, you see the resemblance? For the first entire day I was reading this book, I couldn’t get over how funny that name was!
I love this book so much and I just think Lauren Child is a very creative writer and I very much hope she writes more middle grade/young adult books!
