The first installment of the Compass Club

I've been rereading Jo Goodman this week, and this is probably the fifth or sixth time I've listened to the Compass Club series. Every time I do, I am surprised at how wonderful each book in the series is written, how much I enjoy the characters, and the amount of sleep I lose for not wanted to turn off the iPod and go to bed.

This first installment introduces the four young boys who became the four points of the compass, their school - Hambrick Hall - where they first became sworn enemies of the Bishops, their mentor Colonel Blackwood, and, of course, Madame Fortuna. Madame considers herself a sham fortune teller until she meets North and the family gift suddenly makes itself known.

And so begins a tale of intrigue, love, lust, and greed. Libby has secrets she dare not share, Within these pages you'll find cat burglars, spies, violence, lost innocence, found love, family loyalty. deep friendship, and lusty love scenes - not to mention a few silly wagers, and an inkling of how the Bishops might figure into the rest of the series.

This book will suck you into a world Jo Goodman has created with brilliant attention to detail, complex characters, and leave you wanting more.
