Ridley Pearson. Steel Trapp: The Challenge

Steel Trapp is one of the main characters of the story.  He was blessed with a photographic memory at birth, which allow s him to call up even the most miniscule details even if he only catches a glimpse of it.  Kaileigh Augustine is his science geek accomplice whose national science fair project has been stolen. The story takes place in modern times mostly in Washington D.C.

When Steel sees something heís not supposed to see, some people that the FBI are after try to get him.

I think the genre of the book is action.  Some more books written by this author are Killer Weekend, The Kingdom Keepers, Cut and Run, The Body of David Hayes, and The Diary of Ellen Rimbauer: My life as Rose Red.  I would recommend this book for children 10 and up because younger ages may not comprehend the plot.

In my opinion, this is a very good book because Iíve always loved a good action book.  One reason someone should read this is that it always leaves a good cliffhanger at the end of a chapter; another reason is that all of the characters have good roles to play, and my last reason is that the writer has the ability to switch the story smoothly to another personís point of view.

I rate Steel Trapp: The Challenge 5 stars.
