Booklist - 01/01/2020 It’s time to dust off your memory of Greystone Secrets: The Strangers (2019) because this sequel picks up right where it left off. Though Haddix peppers in enough reminders to jog most readers’ memories, those new to the series should definitely start at the beginning. The three Greystone siblings (Chess, Emma, and Finn) and their friend Natalie are desperately trying to crack the code that will help them save their mothers from the hostile parallel world where they are imprisoned. A breakthrough lands the kids in “Other-Natalie’s” house—the parallel world mirrors much of the protagonists’ world, including the people living in it—on the eve of a large political soiree, leaving them little time to stage a rescue and figure out whom in this world they can trust. Readers will have a ball scurrying through the secret passageways as the tense caper unfolds, but Haddix also gives plenty of page time to the kids’ inner musings. Thus readers are ensured a rich mystery-adventure that will activate their brains and sense of empathy. - Copyright 2020 Booklist.
