"The Lost Secret of the Green Man: Book 2" by Tiffany Turner is an AWESOME book!  This book is about two girls who go into the fairy world to help save the bees that the fairies are finding dead everywhere.  The first chapter is a little bit slow but the rest of the book is page-turning entertainment. 
 
The book starts out on Wanda's first day of middle school.  Wanda is no ordinary kid.  She is a Crystal Keeper and has a cat named Brewford who is a sorcerer.  As a Crystal Keeper she does missions for the fairies.  Once she gets to school, class starts and she meets a girl named Eddie.  They become best friends.  But unbeknownst to Wanda, Eddie, like her, is a Crystal Keeper and has a mission from the fairies.  After school Eddie said that she knew a place that Wanda would like, so they ran to the park.  At the park there was a little hill with a tree which was Eddie's special tree for entering the fairy world.  Then Eddie revealed to Wanda that she was a Crystal Keeper and that the fairy queen had a job for the two of them.  All the bees were dying and that since the bees helped the fairies before, now it was time for the fairies to help the bees.  So the girls headed to a crystal store to do research and found a book about the Green Man.  The Green Man balanced the forest life but now that most people thought he was a myth, he went into hiding.  Eddie and Wanda go in search of the Green Man in hopes that he will know why the bees are dying and can help them.  Will they find the Green Man?  Does he know what is happening to the bees?  Can they save the bees?  Is some evil brewing?The mission was more dangerous and complicated than they had anticipated.  Luckily, they had the help of Chyra, a unicorn, and Brewford's crystal-ball reading teacher who was a cat.  The crystal ball revealed secrets even graver than the bees dying.  Will Wanda and Eddie be able to help?  Will they survive?
 
I would recommend this book to all my friends.   "The Lost Secret of the Green Man: Book 2" book is great.  There is something in it for everyone to enjoy.  It leaves off on a cliff hanger, and I can't wait to get my hands on the third book!
