Koolura is back in a new adventure, six weeks at a sleep away summer camp. She does go with a friend, but finds more once there. She also runs smack into a bunch of mysteries – How are her powers mysteriously draining at night? Who is the boy that keeps making trouble for the campers? What is going on between her dad and Terry? Of course, Koolura also develops a new power or two to go along with this exciting adventure.
Michael L. Thal brought up this delightful tween in the first book, The Legend of Koolura, and this second part of the series is just as charming and innovative. Each chapter is a new road in an adventure where Koolura is on her own, without her dad nearby. Thal approaches subjects such as taking on new and sometimes frightening experiences, a guy who doesn't know his limits, and learning to communicate with a deaf child. All of this is done in such a friendly way that the reader will be eager to take away these important life lessons.
As with the first book, the characters take on each new experience with some trepidation, a lot of enthusiasm, and in a way to involve readers. The plot moves seamlessly from one moment to the next, always giving just enough of what's expected to whet the appetite. All in all, I highly recommend this fast-paced read for all pre-teens, be they a boy or a girl.
I had read Mr. Thal's first story, The Legend of Koolura and was anxious to see if the second in the series would measure up. Mr. Thal did not disappoint!
This is a delightful story of Koolura and her stay at a six week summer camp. She and her new friends are plagued with pranks from the near by boys' camp, but it's all fun and games until the pranks turn potentially deadly.
Koolura, even with the use of her special powers, finds herself in danger when she.....
NOPE - You will have to read this wonderful story that both you and your children will love! Adventure right from the get go leaves you wanting more, not to mention there is a strong message in this story that all ages should know!
Really nice job, Michael Thal.
