What I like about this Novel
This is a good book for teenager to spend their vacation and increase their learning skills and vocabulary. Both the brothers Joe and Frank are very intelligent, brave and enthusiast. They don’t easily give up on things.
While reading, the author focus on one thing, which I liked a lot, he never made the characters ignore their academic studies and sport activities, kids should have passion and hobbies, but you should never ignore your studies for your hobbies.
Hobbies help you to release your stress and fresh up your mind. But good education helps you to be a better person in the future, so that you can help the needful in your society.
