“This adventure and friendship story will pull you along happily on the journey of Annie and her posse of friends called the Scouts. Are friendships forever or can they be finite due to outgrowing shared experiences? Debut author Greenland carefully navigates this question as seventh grade looms large on the horizon. Before that happens, Annie and her buddies get lost in caves, almost drown, and get down and dirty in the mud and worms while a strange meteor shower-sprinkling of silver dust leads to a wham-bang climax worthy of the James Patterson name! Hand this to any lover of the action-adventure genre and watch the pages fly by.”
— Maureen Palacios, Once Upon a Time, Montrose, CA
About the Author
Shannon Greenland grew up in Tennessee where she dreaded all things reading and writing. She didn't even read her first book for enjoyment until she was twenty-five. After that she was hooked! When she's not writing, she works as an adjunct math professor and lives on the coast in Florida with her very grouchy dog.
Praise for Scouts:
"A little Goonies, a little Stand By Me, and all heart, Scouts is that special kind of book that makes you feel like you've made new friends. I loved every second of adventuring with Annie, Beans, and the rest of the gang."—Sarah Beth Durst, award-winning author of The Girl Who Could Not Dream
"Greenland spins a tale that is part Goonies, part Stranger Things, and 100% fun! Set in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains, Scouts is filled with chuckles, supernatural mystery, and out-of-this-world adventure!"—Kristin O'Donnell Tubb, author of The Story Collector series and A Dog Like Daisy
