THIS IS NOT the summer camping trip of Sammy’s dreams. She imagined shade, streams, a deer or two. But she winds up in a phony forest with scrubby shrubs, blazing sun, rattlesnakes, and scorpions. Her fellow campers are desperate to catch a rare glimpse of an endangered condor in the wild. Sammy’s seen enough—that bird is ugly!
But when she and two other girls find an injured condor, Sammy’s intrigued. The girls stray away from their group to track down a clue, but instead stumble onto two classmates and wind up lost. Which leaves three girls and two boys in the middle of a canyon with one tent and six billion biting flies. Oh—and an armed and dangerous high-stakes poacher.
“Quick-witted banter makes this a fast-paced joyride of a read. Think a combination of Carl Hiaasen’s Flush and Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum books and you’ll be right on target.”—School Library Journal
“A winning series about a smart, brave young sleuth.”—Booklist
