Description of this Book

A thrilling adventure full of magic and wonder. John August is a master storyteller. --Ransom Riggs, #1 New York Times-bestselling author of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children From acclaimed screenwriter John August, Arlo Finch in the Lake of the Moon is a spellbinding fantasy adventure story about the magic that lies just beyond our world. Something was coming. Arlo felt certain about that. For Arlo Finch and the Rangers of Pine Mountain Company, summer camp is more than canoeing and hiking. It's also a chance to earn patches for more magical activities like identifying forest spirits and learning about the past by reading trees. But trouble starts even before Arlo and his best friends Indra and Wu head off for camp. When they stumble upon clues about a long-lost Patrol, Arlo uncovers a history that leads right back to his very own family . . . and changes everything forever.

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review Praise for Arlo Finch in the Valley of Fire Accomplished screenwriter August artfully thrusts readers into a whole new world, right alongside Arlo . . . This is just the first volume in a new series, so readers won't have to wait long to plunge back into the mysterious Long Woods. --Booklist Much like other popular series such as 'Percy Jackson, ' [this is] an exciting fantasy novel grounded in reality with a strong emphasis on friendships and great characters. This new series will appeal to fans of mystery and adventure as well as reluctant readers. --School Library Journal The mysteries--from what makes Arlo a target to why a girl who vanished years ago has reappeared to him and only him--become increasingly more compelling as more pieces are revealed . . . Readers will find Arlo relatable, especially if they've ever struggled to fit in themselves. --The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books A thrilling adventure full of magic and wonder. John August is a master storyteller. --Ransom Riggs, #1 New York Times-bestselling author of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children A fast, fun, and fearless tale. Arlo's adventures feel both completely real and entirely magical. I loved it! --Ally Condie, #1 New York Times-bestselling author of Matched and Summerlost A masterful mix of mystery and adventure, set in a supernatural scouting troop. Reading this book made me wish I hadn't dropped out of Cub Scouts. --Geoff Rodkey, New York Times-bestselling author of the Tapper Twins series
UK Review Bertrams Star Rating: 2 stars (out of 5)
