The Explorers: The Door in the Alley
I loved the way this book started out - quirky chapter titles, a quirky character, and asides to the reader. The problem was that the quirkiness wasn't consistent all the way through. The book starts with Sebastian coming upon a mysterious door in an alley and discovering the Explorer's Society. He soon begins to "work" for them. Meanwhile, there is Evie, an orphan who finds herself in a dangerous situation and discovers that her grandfather is alive.
At that point the two begin to look for a group of 5 explorer's, including Evie's grandfather, and a mysterious key. There was some good action and a bit of mystery but... the book ended with a cliffhanger (and the cliffhanger taunted about cliffhangers). I think once more of the books are out the series might catch on but it wasn't my favorite.
