The Conspiracy, Animorphs #31

The Conspiracy - Katherine Applegate

Happy Thanksgiving fellow American Booklikers!


Right on the heels of Marco's crisis with his mother, a death in Jake's family means an extended family visit away from home - this wouldn't be a problem, except for the fact that Jake's older brother Tom has a parasite that needs Kandrona rays every three days or he'll die a slow and painful death.


Tom can't come right out and say that of course, being a secret invader and all, so it leads to tension between Tom and Jake's father. Jake fears the Yeerk inside Tom's head will kill if necessary to get out of the trip. 


Jake has to face some personal demons and contemplate the impossible, but when it comes down to it, what is one life in the face of the Animorph's struggle for the future of all of humanity?


All of this guerrilla warfare may not be so hot for these middle-schoolers.
