Scouts

Stranger Things meets The Goonies in this suspenseful yet heartwarming adventure story of a group of friends who set out to find a crashed meteor...but find mystery, danger, and fractures in their close relationships instead.

Annie, Beans, Rocky, and Fynn. They're the Scouts--best friends who do everything together. It's 1985, and with the summer before seventh grade winding down, the Scouts decide to secretly climb Old Man Basinger's silo to watch a meteor shower. When one meteor seems to crash nearby, the Scouts know they have to go find it.

But their fun overnight jaunt through the woods soon takes a turn when they come across a series of disturbing discoveries about the meteor, and find themselves on the run from the Mason clan who live in the wilderness. Bonds are tested when new kids join their adventure and true feelings are revealed. Will the Scouts survive this journey together, or will their unbreakable friendships prove vulnerable after all?

    Adventurous kids, an asteroid, strange things, and a great cover...and 2/3 of the way through I realized I just didn't care what happened. Perhaps the target audience of 4th-6th graders will care....
