It’s Friday the 13th and I am so not superstitious. So guess what? I have a really fun giveaway for you today. I had the opportunity to read and review The League and the Lantern by Brian Wells. Not only did I get to review it but I have been given the opportunity to give a copy away. So without further ado here is my review of the book. Just remember to keep reading so you can find out how to enter and win a copy of this book.
The League and the Lantern is the first book in a new adventure series for middle-school readers. It all starts when a dangerous organization invades Jake Herndon’s seventh-grade sleepover. He escapes along with two new classmates, Lucy and TJ, only to face a 48-hour fight for survival on the streets of Chicago. The kids unravel a mystery dating back to the Civil War, and an incredible secret about Jake’s family. Along the way they learn unexpected lessons about courage, family and friendship.
Author: Brian Wells
A concerned dad who couldn’t find quality entertainment for his kids. He has worked and produced 15 TV movies for the major networks, and this is his book debut.
This book inspires reading by providing a fun adventure for the reader to jump right into. It also teaches a lot of history which your kids won’t even realize they are learning by including 140 different vocabulary words and using historic sites as the settings throughout the story.
I love that it is full of fun and clean morals. As well as learning about relationships with family and friends. This story teaches compassion and mercy and how to get along with those who are different than you. All of the three main characters are different. They all come from different family situations and backgrounds.
If you purchase this book they will give a copy away to a child in need. So not only is it a great story for your middle school kids, both boys and girls, you can spread the love of reading along the way by purchasing it.
I’m excited to read more in this series.
