ABOUT THE BOOK
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Whitesides has done it again. He's written another winner. I was eager to find out what was going to happen to Spencer and Daisy and their allies in this fifth and final volume of the Janitors series. After the somewhat shocking end of book four I was definitely anxious to see hour it would all end. And Whitesides did not disappoint. Things start off with a bang when Spencer's family is taken by the BEM in an effort to force him to reveal the location of the bronze nails. This series has been a delight to read with the imaginative use of everyday objects in magical ways. I've admired the author's ability to make seemingly boring objects (toilet plungers, cleaning sprays, etc.) exciting and fun. And once again, new inventions and possibilities are introduced (drain cleaner that eats through walls and floors for example). The book moves quickly into the action and doesn't let up until the end, which one would expect from the final book in a series. I found the ending very satisfying and even a bit surprising. The author manages to integrate plenty of surprises in terms of plot and character which made for a great read. I'm actually sad that the series is over. I very much look forward to reading more from this author and seeing what else he comes up with.
