Generally speaking, books don't cause much harm. Except when you read them, that is...
If this were normal cover copy for a normal sort of book, you'd read here about the book's intrepid young heroes Cass and Max-Ernest. You'd read about how their adventures begin when they discover a mysterious box of vials--the so-called Symphony of Smells. You might learn how they soon find themselves hot on the trail of an eccentric magician who has vanished under strange circumstances. You'd discover hidden codes and brain-twisting riddles, audacious kidnappings and nefarious villains. You might even hear what a marvelous and surprising book The Name Of This Book Is Secret is, and how it is reminiscent of some classic authors like Ellen Raskin or Roald Dahl, while having an original voice all its own. Alas, you won't read any of those things here.
You see, not only is the name of this book secret, the story inside is too. Peek under the cover if you must -- but, please, don't mention it to anyone.
This paperback is in near-new condition with light shelf wear.
