Rick Riordan writes the first book in this popular Scholastic series.

In this book readers are introduced to Dan and Amy Cahill. Their Aunt Grace has just passed on and when they attend the reading of her will they find out how extraordinary their family really is. Descended from important and powerful people -- like Ben Franklin -- family members are offered a choice of a million dollars or the chance of tremendous power; power than can only be won if they solve a mystery with 39 clues. Dan and Amy choose the puzzle but this puts them in competition with other family members, some of whom aren't very nice. Humor and adventure are nicely mixed.

A couple of years after the Clue Hunt the feud between the Cahill branches has ended.  But there's not to be peace because no a new trouble rises: a family called the Vespers. The Vespers have been the Cahills' enemies forever, but now they've grown very bold.  In fact, they've kidnapped 7 Cahills so they can coerce Amy and Dan into retrieving rare artifacts for them.

9 Lives of Chloe King  (YA)

For a once popular series there isn't alot of information about Chloe's story.  I can tell you though that this is for young adult readers.

But essentially the tale is about a normal girl who wakes up one morning with cat-like powers.
