"My grandson, aged 18, did well on his ACTs and SATs, and loved 'Conspiracy on the Housatonic.' He put it to good use.
I read it myself first and finished it one night at 2 in the morning. Couldn't put it down!"

"Nice job! I admire the detail. It must have been a monumental task researching names and locations. I would definitely recommend the book to anyone of any age. Fun reading and challenging to the vocabulary."
- Don Ahlm, Illinois
"Fascinating concept, blending a WWII historical mystery with SAT preparation words quite smoothly, in the context of the story's development. Word enrichment benefits all age readers harmoniously while journeying into the plot's precarious developments.
A 17-year-old heroine's budding detective work, aided by her best friend's intrigued support, develops their romantic interest. Packed with history and war politics, aided by cultural photos from the era, evokes a reader's vicarious enjoyed venture.
Suspenseful discoveries of foreign spies envelopes the heroine and her boyfriend deeply into an international wartime espionage plot, as it does the reader.
Entertaining, educational, enriching, an enjoyable read.† The story is followed by SAT vocabulary defined as well as a few social, cultural, historical references and Bibliography."
- Carol Skog, Connecticut
"I am enjoying the book so much; the references to WW2, comments about the Swedes, vocabulary building, the mystery and more. Having grown up in Hamden, CT, and having 100% Swedish ancestry, the book has added meaning for me and brings back many memories."
- Marilyn Hultgren, Minnesota
