Cody and the Mysteries of the Universe

Cody's big plans lead to some unexpected discoveries in this second book of the CODY series.

In this life, many things are hard to wait for. Numero uno may be waiting for your best friend to move in right around the corner. Cody’s got big plans, including helping shy Spencer get used to his new school and solving the mystery of the mean pirate family next door. Lots of things–some enormous, and some invisible to the naked eye–get in the way. (By the way, who knew Spencer played violin, or that even a bug murderer could have a sweet side?) Cody comes to think that, hard as patience is, sometimes waiting is really worth it.
