Rescue at Lake Wild
Madison is twelve, but she already knows what she wants to do with her life. She will rescue wildlife, as her late grandmother had done and like her hero Jane Goodall. In fact, she is already doing it, unofficially and against her parents’ wishes, but when she and her best friends, Aaron and Jack, discover two beavers have been killed, they know there are kits still in the lodge that must be saved. Ignoring the danger, Madison swims into the lodge and makes it out with two tiny kits. The kids have to hide them from Madison’s parents and find ways to feed them. They also take it upon themselves to use their detective skills to find out who killed the beavers. The town is thinking of putting a bounty on beavers! Things are getting desperate.
Author Terry Lynn Johnson always creates brave, daring girls to people her stories, and this book is no exception. The story is very compelling, the writing terrific, and readers will root for Madison and her two friends in their mission. There is some danger, but not too much for the middle-grade set, and a good bit of adventure. This is a winner.
