Logan Seagate has known trouble in his young life. His mother died when he was only 5, leaving him in the care of his volatile father. Now he is fostered by a loving family but he still has a hard time letting go of his past. Things look to be getting better and better for him when he meets Meeka, an adventurous and over-imaginative daughter of a mysterious family. Together they discover a smuggling ring and face one danger after another. Will they both have the courage they need when their lives and the lives of their families are put at risk?
“This is a great book. It is different from some other middle grade adventure books as the characters are as strong as the plot. The characters are fresh and well developed – led by the one-of-a-kind quirky 11 year old girl Meeka and her friend, brave, troubled 13 year old Logan. “
“What a feel good, great read! It has a bit of everything; family, friendship, action, suspense, laugh-out-loud wit, fight scenes, racing cars and more. The story is believable and heart-warming. “
