The Shadow Club Rising The Shadow Club is a great book about a group of kids who are always coming in second place. They form a club and pull cruel pranks on their rivals. The club ended in the first book, but the new kid, Alec is good at everything. This made people furious. So someone starts playing pranks on him. All fingers are pointed at Jared, the used to be leader of the Shadow Club. Even though he is not the one doing it, he has to prove his innocence. Even though Jared doesn¿t like Alec, he would pull pranks on him. The group that hung around Alec started to wear denim hats with the initials TSC on it. They said the initials mean the tennis and squash center. They lied It really stood for The Shadow Club. They were pulling pranks while Jared took the blame. It was the perfect plan until Jared found out who was doing it. They eventually got in trouble and were expelled, and life went on. Alec was ok and everyone was fine for now.

The Shadow Club was a group of "second-best" kids who were always left out of the spotlight, and managed to come up with a series of pranks. But the jokes got out of control, and people got hurt, and so the Shadow Club is no more. The members still have the bad reputation that goes along with actions like that, and whenever something nasty happens, the adults find it easiest to blame them. Jared used to be one of the leaders of the Shadow Club, and he's being blamed for the string of increasingly evil practical jokes being played on the school's new practically-perfect student, Alec Smartz. Jared is being framed -- but how to prove it? He gathers the Shadow Club back together with a new mission: find out who's behind these new pranks and protect Alec. Unfortunately, the former members one by one refuse to help, and Jared is left alone to prove his innocence by catching the real culprit, who's also attacking others besides Alec. A good suspenseful mystery! 6th grade and up.

If you thought you liked the Shadow Club, Shusterman's thrilling sequel, The Shadow Club Rising, is a must read. When Jared Mercer is caught up in a suffocating reputation as prankster, he resorts to anything to prove his innocence. When he is even accused by his own parents, he doesnt give up hope, he still tries to crack the case. This book had me on the edge of my seat, turning the pages a mile a minute. I dont think I have read a book as fast and fell in love with it. Believe me, this book is awesome. Two thumbs up!
