The Caden Chronicles Series
When a “ghost” accuses his neighbor of murder, Nick must work with a fake fortune teller to find the real killer.
“This time Nick doesn’t have all the answers, but he asks the right questions. And what he learns is worse than any lies a fake fortuneteller might pass off as truth.” – Book Editor, Girls’ Life Magazine
Caden Chronicles Series
Why should a boy or girl begin reading the Caden Chronicles?
Novels in the Caden Chronicles are fast, fun, clean teen and tween books. Boys and girls will fall in love with the quirky characters Nick meets, their oddball antics, and the way Nick solves murder cases by watching police and detective shows — all while Nick displays daring confidence, while also finding trouble and danger.
Why should parents pick the Caden Chronicles for their boys and girls?
Parents will appreciate the clean elements and moral values that avoid profanity and suggestive situations. As an imperfect teen sleuth, Ricky is troubled by the ruthless actions of those around him and the lies and treachery of pirates. Above all, he wants to right wrongs committed hundreds of years in the past. This drives Ricky to act in ways that lead him towards danger.
Each book has some romance, but it’s innocent and clean. The girls who help Ricky find treasure and battle pirates are independent, smart, brave, and often see things Ricky overlooks.
What age is appropriate for these books?
The Caribbean Chronicles are appropriate for mature seventh grade readers. Other parents may choose seventh or eighth grade, due to the fact that Ricky IS sailing with pirates who, their very nature, are bloodthirsty cutthroats. The Caribbean Chronicles are also a great, nostalgic read for adults who enjoy high sea stories, pirates, and sailing adventures.
