The League and The Lantern by Brian Wells is a new juvenile non-fiction series created by a concerned parent who wanted quality reading material for his teenager. He has worked and produced 15 TV movies and this is his first book debut.
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.
I love stories that incorporate education into reading enjoyment! My children learn best this way, and I’m sure many (if not all) do!
If your pre-teen/teenager loves adventure stories with a twist of history, this just may be a new series for them to love!
Some great things about this book:
• Inspires reading - Adventure series your kids will want to read.
• Educational Value - 140 key vocabulary words hidden throughout the story, historic sites are part of the setting.
• Moral Value - Lessons in family, friendship, mercy and compassion. Lead characters are friends who are different races.
• Help Kids - Operates on a buy one - give one campaign to get books into the hands of kids who cannot afford their own copies.
