The 8th book in the 39 Clues series has came out and it is great. Amy and Dan head to China to find the next clue. Dan and Amy come to a disagreement about who their parents really were and Dan runs away is the largest country in the world. However Dan isn't even away for 20 minutes when one of his cousins kidnaps him. Meanwhile Nellie and Amy search all around Bejing for Dan. Dan in the meantime has been taken in by his pop-star cousin Johna Wizard. While pretending to search for Amy the Wizards take advantage of him. At the great Wall Of China Amy finds the symbol for grace, her grandmother's name. The clue she finds leads her to Tibet. When Cora Wizard the head of the Janus branch meets her son in China she tells Dan he is a Janus. Knowing she is lying Dan runs away revealing his true a identity. After hearing a report on CNN he hitchhikes on trains to Tibet where he is finally reunited with his sister. Nellie Gomez, their au pair, use unknown connections to get them on their way. What happened next is the climax of the story. The suspense literally could not be higher than it is at the end of the book. It is a great book and I would recommend the whole series.
