Author Tim Shoemaker has a heart for good fiction for middle-graders and YA readers, and as he describes his goals with his stories, you get a sense of his heart for the readers themselves.  Listen in and see why I immediately bought the books after chatting with him.

When Focus on the Family considered the kids who had grown up on The Adventures in Odessey were growing up and needed something more age-appropriate, they turned to Tim Shoemaker for an exciting, action-packed series. Well, he certainly delivered! 

His High Water series features park ranger families and the adventures they get up to--starting in The Everglades, the series proceeds up to Massachusetts and back down to the Everglades in his most recent book. EEEP!

Shoemaker also has a stand-alone novel about bullying. Easy Target sounds like a great read, too!

 The Second Storm by Tim Shoemaker

The Second Storm is the fourth book in the High Water series. It blends contemporary mystery and suspense, dramatic situations, and high adventure that readers 12 years old and older will love.

A Category 5 hurricane is heading for southern Florida, and Parker Buckman’s friend Wilson Stillwaters is caught in its crosshairs. It’s going to be bad, and Wilson will need help. But that means going back to the Everglades―a place filled with some bad memories.

Angelica will do anything she can to get her friend Parker back home safely. What she doesn’t realize is the real threat―the second storm―is threatening to be far more deadly for Parker and his friends than the hurricane. The storm has allowed Clayton Kingman to escape from prison, and he has a big surprise in store for the group, one he intends to deliver personally.

An even bigger storm is brewing . . . and there’s no way to stop it.
