Living the Secret
Jo-Marie, author
Ayden & Jayden (very tiny beings) are the bullies of Maple Community, a town inside of a tree. They think they’re prepared to leave their sheltered environment and face the huge outside world. They’re wrong. They need help. Lots of it! Luckily, they meet someone who can teach them how to survive. The twins learn that the outside world is not what they expected and that their town has kept a huge secret from them, actually more than one secret. Surviving in this dangerous world means that these fourteen year old bullies must become heroes.

I Like Book 2 Better Than Book 1    5.0 out of 5 stars

These little guys can keep a secret

     This book is the sequel to Adi’s World and you probably should read that one first although this one is an entirely different story with only a few of the characters in the first book continuing on with this one. As far a sequel or Book Two type books go, I liked this one better than Book One. I tend to like Action/Adventure books, and this one is that. It’s a mystery too because of that secret at becomes revealed. And with the note in the back of the book, Book Three is a go and there’s a lot to write about since it’s a big world out there.

Living the Secret    Book Review

             Reviewed by Janelle Fila for Readers' Favorites


Living the Secret by Jo-Marie is a children's story about two tiny characters who decide to escape life within a tree and see the outside world. Most people are happy in Maple Community until the branch holding the Maple Basic School cracks opens. The town shuts down the school until they can repair the broken branch, but two kids, Ayden and Jayden, decide the cracked branch is their opportunity to escape Maple Community. They want to experience life outside of the tree and look for their uncle, the first person to leave the tree and live on the outside world. But once outside, Ayden and Jayden discover being tiny in a world full of creatures and bugs and gigantic trees is not all it is cracked up to be. What will they do to survive now that they are away from home with no way to return?

I think this is a really cute and clever story. I always liked the idea of giant creatures and tiny people living within walls and trees and other fantastical places. Young readers will especially like the idea of this story (what child hasn't imagined that his broccoli is a giant tree to climb and play on?) Readers will also love the companionship between Ayden and Jayden who are very close and care for each other very much. I really appreciated the fact that, when things went south on their adventure, they missed their mother and wished they had been nicer to the people at their school.
