My review: A fun scouting adventure turns into a little more than any one planned for. Andy and his fellow scouts show that even though they're young and still learning they are strong and know when to ask for help. My 9 year old and I enjoyed reading this one together! A fun book for everyone though I think ages 7-13 would especially like it!
About the book: From passing the sacrament with his fly down to failing miserably at capture the flag, Andrew knows he'll never be able to fulfill his duties as a deacon. But when tragedy strikes on his Boy Scout backpacking trip, Andrew's whole troop must become stronger than they ever imagined. This hilarious coming-of-age story is bound to have you rooting for a "misfit" hero.
Matt has been working with Scouts and Young Men for over ten years. He has led adventures into deep canyons, up tall mountains, and through ragining rivers. Search and Rescue has only been called once.
Matt lives in Mesa, Arizona, with his wife and five kids. He served a mission in Sao Paulo, Brazil, where he learned Portuguese, how to love the people, and how to walk really fast. In his spare time, he runs a free neighborhood sports league for kids.
