This adventure and friendship story will pull you along happily on the journey of Annie and her posse of friends called the Scouts. Are friendships forever or can they be finite, based on outgrowing shared experiences? Debut author carefully navigates this question as 7th grade looms large on the horizon. Before that happens, Annie and her buddies get lost in caves, almost drown, get down and dirty with mounds of mud and worms, and a strange, meteor shower-sprinkling of silver dust leads to a wham-bang climax worthy of the James Patterson name! Hand this to any lover of action/adventure and watch the pages fly by. - Maureen
