This short story is a delightful and quick read. The author gets the personality of the boy exactly right. There’s a mystery about what’s going on with his braces, troubles with a school bully, a life-or-death search for missing hikers—and there’s even a ghost! You can’t get any better than that!
I’ve enjoyed other books by C.Lee McKenzie. She always balances an exciting plot with deep, emotional resonance from her characters. Highly recommended!
