While the first half to two-thirds of The Hidden Oasis develops an interesting dual plot, the rest of the book contains scene after scene of last minute near-death escapes by the hero and/or heroine. Couple that with science fiction goings-on in an imaginary Egyptian tomb, I imagine it must have been difficult for the narrator to keep a straight face as he trudged through to the end of the story, despite his excellent effort to keep the reader's attention.
If a lot more had been left to the imagination, including facial expressions, plot development, translation of foreign expressions, etc
Reading was too simplistic - perhaps meshing with the story
Keep out the little foul language there is in the book and market it as a mystery book for young teens.
the two narrators were excellent and gave their individual characters to the two protagonists
Close - but probably Amy because of all her twists and turns
If you enjoy intricate descriptive detail of every scene - whether relevant or not - this one's for you.
