I was so intrigued when the author asked me to write a review, just look at the cover! It's such a beautiful illustration, the colors, how the characters are blackened out, it's really unique. And the blurb is captivating, so I had to give it a try and it was adventurous!

Will Jem and Erica find their father? Will their father give up the jewels to the men? And why does their father have the jewels in the first place? Find out much more when you read this thrilling mystery, Paraglide...
I liked this book very much. I didn't exactly expect this book to be like that, but it was very different from the things I have read before. Since I am a fan of thrillers and mysteries, this book was very enjoyable. It was fun and entertaining to try and find out who is the person who kidnapped their mother, it was really unexpected!
The only complain I have, is that the characters are not developed very much. They almost look like stereotypes, but altogether, this book is an enjoyable roller coaster ride with many intriguing twists and turns. You better try this out and see for yourself!
