Lost Island Smugglers by Max Anderson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Lost Island Smugglers by Max Elliot Anderson is about Sam Cooper and his family’s latest move. Sam’s dad’s job has them moving frequently. While Sam has learned to adjust and makes friends quickly, it’s hard to leave relationships behind over and over. When the Cooper family visits a local church, Sam meets two boys who seem to know how to find all the excitement. Tony’s dad owns the marina and Tyler is Tony’s sidekick. After getting all three boys free scuba lessons, Tony borrows one of his dad’s boats so he and his friends can do some real scuba diving. The boys learn a lot about themselves as well as a few secrets of the island that someone else wants kept secret.
Growing up I loved reading Hardy Boys (preferred them over Nancy Drew) and this reminded me of a Christian contemporary version of Hardy Boys. There is definitely action, adventure and suspense for both boys and girls 8-12 years.
