My Sister, the Traitor, the second book of the Max Williams Adventure series, features Max Williams, a quirky, super-smart kid who wants to work for the CIA, and his crack team of spies-in-training. Max uses his Aikido skills to solve mysteries, and depends on his seventy-year old sensei, Mrs. W for advice.
Max loves being a hero, but now he has a rival – Mrs. W’s nephew, Axel. Smart, popular, and practically a black-belt in Aikido, Axel is more than Max can handle. Even worse – he’s dating Max’s sister, Belinda. But, when Max plots to ruin Axel’s reputation, he winds up in the middle of a dangerous crime scene.
Max and Axel must work together to solve the crime before Axel is arrested for arson. Or worse - before Hinky the crime boss finds them. Max doesn’t want to lose Sensei W’s friendship, but he might if he can’t fix the mess he’s made before he ruins Axel’s life.
My Sister, the Traitor is book 2 in the Max Williams Adventure Series, but can easily be read if you haven't read book 1. The series is designed to introduce kids to the art of aikido and the values of determination, loyalty, and fairness without being preachy. Max works his way through his problems in his own unique way, with the patient guidance of Mrs. W.
About the Author
Perhaps a late bloomer, Becky Black Powell started writing books after a career as a lawyer and nine years of homeschooling her son. She is the author of the Max Williams Adventures Series. The series features Max Williams, a quirky, super-smart kid who wants to work for the CIA, and his crack team of spies-in-training. Max uses his Aikido skills to help solve mysteries, and depends on his seventy-year old sensei, Mrs. W, for advice. Mother to a college-aged son who is a gifted Aikidoka, Powell was inspired by the tremendous positive impact his training brought to the entire family. One goal of the Max Williams books is to give back to the Aikido community by spreading the word about this beautiful martial art. Powell lives in rural Tennessee with her husband, two dogs - Angel, a Jack Russell Terrier, and Scout, a mixed-Lab - and a pond full of koi. When she's not writing, she enjoys reading, binge watching on Netflix, and being outside with her dogs. She is currently working on a novel for grown-ups, The Magdalene Controversy.
