Book Review of Janitors: Secrets of New Forest Academy (Book #2) by Tyler Whitesides

I loved the first book in this series, and couldn’t wait for book two to come out! Let me tell you, Book #2, Secrets of New Forest Academy did NOT disappoint! Tyler Whitesides has done it again! This series just keeps getting better and better! Now I’m going to have to wait for Book #3 to come out!


Now more than ever, Spencer, Daisy, and even Dez must fight to save schools everywhere. Toxites, the small creatures that love to feed on the brain waves of students, are just the beginning of their troubles. The Bureau of Educational Maintenance (BEM) is after Spencer, and the Rebels hope to sneak him to safety within the walls of an elite private school. But danger follows Spencer and his friends, testing their loyalty and trust as well as their Toxite-fighting skills. Can they hold out long enough to discover the true secret of New Forest Academy and what it means to the future of education?


My Book Review:

Well, I liked book #1 a lot, and thankfully, book #2 did not disappoint! There is lots of toxite-fighting action, betrayal, danger, garbage dumpsters, and cleaning supplies. There are also new friends and enemies, along with some fun new glopified weapons.

I thought this book was a fun, easy read, and for those who liked the first book, you will definitely like the second. Spencer and Daisy continue to fight for education everywhere, including where they thought they would be safe. Penny and Walter continue to surprise with fun new inventions. There are some great twists and turns in this book, along with some surprises.

I liked a bunch of the new characters. I wasn’t sure about some of them at first, but they grew on me for sure. There are some definite “yeah-right” moments in the book, but it’s fantasy, right? Anything can happen! It’s very creative and fun. It’s really not the best writing in the world, but it’s fun and the kids love it. It’s also clean, which is always a bonus in my book.

I can’t tell you the number of kids who have seen me reading this series and commented on how much they loved it and can’t wait for book #3 (which I will review tomorrow!!!). I have my two boys and the neighbor girl already waiting……and waiting…..for me to finish #3 so they can read it. I’m sure it will get passed on after that as well.

My sister said my niece didn’t want to read this series because the covers look too boy-ish. She’s right, they do kind of make it seem more for boys, but Daisy and Penny are main characters, and they are girls. I think the girls will like it too, you just have to get them to look past the cover art. This series is actually really good for showing strong girl characters.
