APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Fans of Lauren Child's Clarice Bean series will be tickled to see that Clarice's favourite fictional detective, Ruby Redfort, has her own series. The kickoff mystery, Look Into My Eyes, tells the story of how 13-year-old amateur detective and codebreaker Ruby is drafted into a secret spy organisation. Brimming with thrills and laughs, it’s the perfect read for tweens; the book also features codes for young sleuths to decipher alongside Ruby.
Honestly I’m only on page 81 and so far it is amazing. The mystery of the codes and everything is awesome. I rate this 5/5 and 100% needed to read (I recommend )
THIS BOOK IS AMAZING IF YOU DON'T READ IT, I WILL DISECT YOUR ORGANS!!!!!!!
Jk,jk,jk.. This book is perfect for, well, perhaps not aaaall ages, but is suitable from the age of 10 up to whenever you feel like it. It puts a smile on your face and is impossible to put down. It involves a strong female and is perfectly refreshing. The bad guys are perfect, and who doesn't want to be friends with Ruby, the heroine of the story? Once again, READ THIS BOOK IT IS SHAMAZING
