White Fang (Hardcover)
From the pen of Jack London comes a tale of a wild animal that chooses friendship with a human. Most creatures are born with some wildness and some tameness in them. In White Fang, who is half dog and half wolf, this contrast is stronger than most. As an orphan in the Yukon Territory wilderness, he must survive through strength and ferocity. But as he comes closer and closer to the world dominated by humans, will he be able to cope with increasing domestication? Is human civilization all that different than the wild world he leaves behind? Jack London became famous for his stories set in the often harsh world of Alaska and Northern Canada. White Fang is one of the best-loved of these tales.
The fantastic follow up to McGee’s first Ryan Quinn adventure for middle grade readers will keep your adrenaline high, your heart thumping with suspense as the pages fly by. Ryan is once again teemed with his funny sidekick, Danny, a kid computer genius “aka” hacker, as well as numerous others. Ryan’s last adventures didn’t really include his parents, who are members of a secret Emergency Relocation Committee, who help at-risk people get out of their countries to safety. This time, Danny and Ryan are in a fictional African country trying to help old ERC friends and their parents are in the middle of the action with them. Reading the 1st adventure is not necessary in this high octane thriller for action-adventure fans. Perfect book for Rick Riordon, James Patterson or Stuart Gibbs fans. - Maureen
