The Mechanical Mind of John Coggin is very fast paced and action packed. John (11) and his sister Page (I think 6 or 7) are orphans and live with their mean great aunt. Johns job is to make coffins, which he is particularly good at. They go on a trip to a beach for Johns eleventh birthday. John and Page decide to run away with a mysterious character named Boz. From there, John and Page go to many different places. This book is great for people who like action packed books, or people who like somewhat realistic fiction.
