If you have tween age girls who love adventure, I highly recommend this book! May 29, 2013
This book is about a middle school aged girl who is being in the canine search and rescue business by her step mother. While selling crafts to raise money for her very own puppy to train as a search and rescue dog, she is framed for a crime. Almost everyone, including her own father, thinks that she did it. The book chronicles her sleuthing with her best friend's help to find out the real perpetrator. It is full of fun and adventure, and not too much boy/girl drama. There are many twists and turns along the way to keep the story interesting. I think it's right on target for the intended age group! I actually really enjoyed this book myself, and will have to read the rest of the series!
Review by Cammy
In Rock Harbor Search and Rescue, a middle grade fiction novel based on Colleen Coble’s bestselling Rock Harbor series for adults, kids will enjoy the mixture of pets, adventure, suspense, and a mystery.
Emily O’Reilly is obsessed with all things Search and Rescue. She volunteers with the team and goes on rescue missions with her stepmom. She is even selling homemade jewelry to save up for her own Search and Rescue puppy. But when an expensive necklace is stolen from a renowned jewelry artist at Rock Harbor’s fall festival and Emily is accused of the crime, it looks like she’ll never get her puppy and be able to join the Rock Harbor Search and Rescue team.
Emily isn’t willing to give up on her Search and Rescue dreams that easily, and she sets out to find the real culprit and to restore her reputation. With a few suspects in mind, Emily is determined to uncover the truth, but she isn’t prepared for the secrets she and the Search and Rescue dogs sniff out in the process. This exciting mystery is filled with twists and turns that will keep readers on the edge of their seats and have them pining after a Search and Rescue puppy of their own!
