Cassidy Jones (Book 1) by Elise Stokes

(by Goodreads)

One Girl. One Accident. One Incredible Superhero.

Cassidy Jones is your typical fourteen-year-old— that is, until a seemingly harmless accident in the laboratory of a world-renowned geneticist turns her world upside down.

Discovering incredible strength, speed, and enhanced physical senses that defy logic, Cassidy embarks on an action-packed adventure that has her fighting for answers…and for her very life.


My Opinion

It is amazing, right after the first paragraphs I realised that I was fully drawn into the story.  The idea of someone like Cassidy suddenly becoming a superhero does not seem new at first. Just a few pages into the story you realise that this is different. The story evolves into an adventurous hunt to save a professor, a father, and a friend. I can fully understand how Cassidy feels in the different situations, as Elise Stokes craftily develops the story. No. I will not tell you more. This would spoil the fun of reading this book yourself.

With this first volume of a fantasy series, Elise Stokes proves that it is not required to give never-ending descriptions. You can clearly imagine her surroundings and those she deals with. Cassidy Jones and the Secret Formula perhaps seems to be a light read – however, by showing a great deal of emotional intelligence, it provides food for thought.

Now I am looking forward to reading the next book in the Cassidy Jones Adventure series: Cassidy Jones and Vulcan’s Gift.  🙂

Elise Stokes ( lives with her husband and four children. She was an elementary school teacher before becoming a full-time mom. With a daughter in middle school and two in high school, Elise’s understanding of the challenges facing girls in that age range inspired her to create a series that will motivate girls to value individualism, courage, integrity, and intelligence. The stories in Cassidy Jones Adventures are fun and relatable, and a bit edgy without taking the reader uncomfortably out-of-bounds. Cassidy Jones and the Secret Formula, Cassidy Jones and Vulcan’s Gift, and Cassidy Jones and the Seventh Attendant are the first three books in the series. Book Four, Cassidy Jones and the Luminous, will be released in 2014..

A must read for all readers who enjoy adventures with twists and turns in an everyday environment.

I am looking forward to reading more of Cassidy’s adventures.

Please take a look at my statement on reading in My train of thoughts on …reading.  Now I am asking you.  🙂
