Indie Bound description:
Jack McKinley is an ordinary kid with an extraordinary problem. In a few months, he's going to die.
Jack needs to find seven magic loculi that, when combined, have the power to cure him.
The loculi are the relics of a lost civilization and haven't been seen in thousands of years.
Because they're hidden in the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.
The thrills begin in The Colossus Rises, the first installment in the epic seven-book adventure series Seven Wonders, from master storyteller and bestselling 39 Clues series author Peter Lerangis. The highly anticipated series has received early praise from Rick Riordan, author of the Percy Jackson series, who says, "A high-octane mix of modern adventure and ancient secrets, The Colossus Rises is Lerangis's most gripping work yet. Young readers will love this story. I can't wait to see what's next in the Seven Wonders series!"
Lerangis is the author of some pretty amazing children's and teen books. Here is a small sampling:
|Several 39 Clues Books|
|The Watchers Series|
|Schneider Family Book Award 2013|
|The Spy X Series|
I chose this video partly because of the awesome fifth grader who interviews Peter!
