Hey! Congrats on being #1! Woot!
Because of your skill on spotting talent, I humbly thought you might want to spot mine :) Since you liked the Harry Potter series and His Dark Materials, I think you'd like this book with youth who stumble into gritty action with high stakes. Here's the quick pitch.
Would you dare to stop a terrorist's plot? Greyson Gray does, and he's only a boy. But he has friends…and a fanny pack.
Morris College All-Sports Camp has everything twelve-year-old Greyson Gray needs to distract him from his father's mysterious disappearance - intense athletic competition, weird friends, and a pretty girl. But when Greyson stumbles upon a terrorist's sinister plot brewing in the observatory, a place already haunted by a chilling camp legend, he suddenly toils with two dueling worlds - one of lurking danger and mystery, the other of competition and awkward romance. Spurred on by his father's words to do what's good no matter the danger, Greyson and his faithful friends must mount a daring and coordinated heist on the observatory in order to save thousands of lives. Greyson Gray: Camp Legend is an exciting adventure threaded with witty, sarcastic humor and gritty suspense. You will not only enjoy being in Greyson's shoes as he battles evil in thrilling chases, but also as he deals with his awkward first crush, menacing bullies, and the loss of his father. Prepare to laugh out loud and fall in love with the characters as the Greyson Gray series begins with a bang.
