Book Review: The Secret Keepers

The Secret Keepers
The Secret Keepers by Trenton Lee Stewart

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Reuben is hunted by the criminal mastermind, The Smoke, who is searching for the clock. Reuben must find out the secrets of the clockwatch and its origins before The Smoke and his henchmen, The Directions, find him and steal the clock.
