Back Cover Reading: 
Blair Thomas lives in the friendly, lakeside town of Lainey, Michigan, on the beautiful shores of Lake Huron. Lainey boasts superb hunting opportunities and offers visitors miles of sandy shoreline and weekend tours of the historic Tesla Lighthouse.

It’s the beginning of the fall, duck hunting season, and Blair and her dad are busy preparing for her very first duck hunt. The forecast is calling for extremely high winds and rain, absolutely perfect weather for duck hunting—it doesn’t get any better than this!

Excitement mounts as Blair, her dad, and their faithful chocolate lab, Mac, head in their john-boat toward Edmond Island, four miles offshore. But things start to spiral out of control quickly as two massive storms collide, creating an historic storm directly overhead. Storms like this are dangerous, and this one turns out to be much worse than Blair or her dad could ever have imagined.

The storm takes control of the lake, hammering them with huge waves, and changes what was to be an exciting duck hunt into a desperate struggle for survival. Amidst all the chaos, however, the storm has a special gift for Blair. But will she survive long enough to get it?

All 6 books!

My son hates to read. I bought the first book and he read it in 2 days. He is now starting the 6th book. He read 5 books in a month and a half. Highly recommend these for the kids that love to hunt and need to read more books!!

Story within a story

I appreciate how this book is written as a young woman’s remembrance of an earlier event in her life which she presents as a senior essay. It provides young readers with an idea of how and why they might write about their own life experiences. The plot did get intense in the later chapters, so I gave my grandkids’ mom a heads up about it. And one last suggestion is for better editing. I found three obvious errors of word usage or typos. Kids probably won’t pick up on the errors, but it bothers me as the purchaser of the book.
