Choices. That's what everyone says life is all about. Hard, difficult choices. For Amy and Dan Cahill, they face a choice a thousand times more nerve-wracking than what kind of ice cream to buy, chocolate or vanilla. The consequences are a million times more perilous than having a second-class dessert. Whichever option they choose will be sure to haunt them for eternity, either in a good way or a bad way.
Dying to know what choice could be so ridiculously difficult? How a single choice could leave you with everything, or nothing? No, their choice is not to bet it all on red, but one option could certainly leave you with enough money to do so. That first option is to walk away with a big, fat cheque for a million dollars. Imagine what you could buy with 1,000,000 bucks! Your other option is more complicated.
Have you ever thought if you could possibly be related to your idol, or someone who has helped shape civilizations? Amy and Dan Cahill just found out that daydream is reality for them. Many of the world's most important figures are Cahills just like them. The ancient and valuable secret of the Cahill's success lies behind a maze of 39 diabolical and hidden clues, located all around the world. The second option is: The first clue.
This is NOT a boring, predictable series like many others. In addition to an exciting, fast-paced read, there are a few interesting and unique features. For one, each book (of which there will be many) is going to be written by a different author! Another really fun side attraction is that each book comes with a set of cards with a password that you enter on the internet. Creating a free online account enables you to experience the clue hunt for yourself.
However, the best part is that there are over $10,000 in prizes to be won! In order to start your clue hunt, go to the 39 Clues website. What more could you ask from a series?
