#BookReview | The Van Gogh Deception

“Apparently Hamilton had been raising Jason Bourne.”

This is an adventure filled art thriller for middle schoolers! It starts out with a young boy (Art) discovered in Washington D.C.’s  National Gallery, who has no recollection of who he is or how he got there—and yet he has in-depth knowledge of some the greatest artists in history, and can speak French fluently. So begins a race to find out who he is and why he is being hunted.

While this was a fun Jason Bourne-esque thriller, kids will actually learn something about art history and the artists themselves, which I thought was the best thing about this book.

If you have any middle school kids, or know someone who does, get this book for them! They will throughly enjoy themselves!

Also, it’s DIGITALLY INTERACTIVE! How cool is that!? Kids can scan the QR codes and see the paintings that are being described right on their phones!

My Rating: 4/5 stars

*I received an arc copy from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review
