The Name of this Book Is Secret: Summary

Ah, greetings, dear reader! I see you want to know about a book that you really shouldn't know about. It's too dangerous, you see, to dive into "The Name of This Book Is Secret" by Pseudonymous Bosch. But since you're already here, I might as well spill some beans—but not all of them! The action unravels in a series of quite unspectacular yet uncannily mysterious places: schools, antique shops, even an old spa that's more sinister than it seems.

Cass, a survivalist with a nose for trouble, and Max-Ernest, a boy with uncontainable verbal energy, unwittingly unravel a cryptic riddle that dives them into the perilous world of alchemy and immortality. The dastardly villain is none other than Dr. L and Ms. Mauvais, who are so obsessed with eternal life that they will stop at nothing to get it, even if it means endangering children. As our heroes decipher clues hidden in smell, taste, and sound, they also discover a magical box that shouldn't be opened. Too late for warnings—now they're neck-deep in arcane mysteries they must solve to save their own lives. And get this, not only do they have to deal with nefarious adults, but they also must navigate the complexity of friendship, the challenge of bravery, and the existential dread of middle school! This whimsically dark tale will send you on an intellectual chase, tickle your funny bone, and put you on the edge of your seat all at once.
