The Adventures Of The Sizzling Six:
Who Stole The Cahaba Lily?
Second in the series of eco mysteries, “green” teens take action with attitude and a touch of humor. When six determined teenagers decide to track down poachers tearing up the rare Cahaba lily from a National Wildlife Refuge, they plunge straight into an exciting eco adventure. Will they have the courage to reckon with a bad-tempered thief, and skeptical police? Will they have the guts to appear in court as witnesses? Can they persuade the popular girls at school to stop bullying them and join their river clean up? Attention, fellow Earthlings! This is a serious book with a moral.
The characters of the sizzling six are so well developed I feel that I know them. I especially like the environmental message, and that it’s not too “preachy”—just a great concept for the reader to learn about and understand. There is just enough suspense and action to hold a young reader’s interest.
