The Inventor's Secret

Cragbridge Hall, Book 1: The Inventor’s Secret by Chad Morris

About the Book: Imagine a school in the year 2074 where students don’t read history, but watch it happen around them; where running in gym class isn’t around a track, but up a virtual mountain; and where learning about animals means becoming one through an avatar.

Welcome to Crabridge Hall, the most advanced and prestigious school in the world. Twin siblings Abby and Derick Cragbridge are excited as new students to use their famed grandfather’s inventions that make Cragbridge Hall so incredible. But when their grandfather and parents go missing, the twins begin following a trail of clues left by their grandfather. They must out where their family is, learn who they can trust, and discover what secrets are hidden within Cragbridge  Hall.

Abby and Derick soon realize they are caught in a race with a fiece adversary to discover their grandfather’s greatest secret-a dangerous discovery that could alter both history and reality.


My Review: According to the book, Crabridge Hall is a prestigious school where students can view living history watch a ship sail through their classroom, the invention is called the Bridge. This allows the class to watch as history actually happens. A chair used to show literature and unlocks what really goes on inside the human mind, where you can use a devise to find your way around the school grounds and many more. All invented by Oscar Crabridge the grandfather of Abby and Derick who happened to be admitted into this school. While Derick is a genius his twin sister isn’t.

The story is about twins Abby and Derick, the grandchildren of famous inventor Oscar Crabridge. When Oscar Crabridge and the twin’s parents were taken hostage by an old rivalry that needed a mysterious invention that could change the world for better or worse, Abby and Derick must spring into action to find then before its too late.   Their only hope is to follow the clues left by their grandfather. And the clues can only be found by those who remember the lessons of history. If you love time travel or mysteries you will love this book.

  1. History made fun are my favorite sort of books. I started the 39 Clues series and am enjoying it. I wonder if this is similar with intertwined actual facts about people and events in history?

  2. This sound like a series my ten year old would love. As much as he loves history and reading this is a perfect match for him. We have a trip to the book store this week so I will check this one out. Thanks.
