For all their connections, the Cahill family still lacks its source of power. The family’s secret is revealed by 39 clues hidden around the world, but no one has been able to put them together. For now, Amy and Dan must choose between finding clues and uncovering the truth about their parents’ deaths. There are ten books in Scholastic’s new series, 350 trading cards, and an online game where readers can participate in the story and compete for more than $100,000 in prizes in The 39 Clues.

You can find out if you’re a member of the Cahill family by visiting www.39clues.com. Online accounts were set up for them so they could compete against other kids and Cahill characters to find all 39 clues in the game. As a part of the website, kids can collect Cahill artifacts from around the world, interview characters, and search through the Cahill archives for clues, all while keeping track of their points and clues. Keeping a card collection is beneficial because: Evidence on a Cahill, a clue, or even a family secret can be found on each card.
