Annie, Beans, Rocky, and Fynn are the Scouts, best friends who do everything together. It's 1985, and the summer before seventh grade is just beginning. The Scouts decide to secretly climb Old Man Basinger's silo to watch a meteor shower, and when one meteor seems to crash nearby, the Scouts know they have to set out on their next adventure and find it. But their fun overnight jaunt through the woods soon takes a turn for the worst when they discover a series of disturbing clues about the meteor, and suddenly find themselves on the run from the wild, violent Mason clan. Bonds are tested when new kids join their adventure and the group's true feelings are revealed.

    Annie and her friends Beans, Rocky, and Fynn have been inseparable since Kindergarten. They are setting off into the Tennessee hills for another adventure, but right from the start things are more adventurous than they expected. The first-person story is told from Annie's point-of-view and McInerney deftly conveys the varied emotions of a girl facing the changes that come with growing up: bewilderment, irritation, sadness. McInerney creates unique voices for each of the characters that reflect their individual personalities, making it easy for listeners to follow the dialogue during the many action-packed sequences. The title, dedication, and forward are backed by pop music that seems somewhat incongruous, and the music returns to back the last few lines of the story. This production misstep is the only downfall in an otherwise excellent performance. Young listeners will love this combination of nonstop adventure and exploration of the changing nature of friendship. Grades 4-6. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.

When she's not writing, she works as an adjunct math professor and lives on the coast in Florida with her very grouchy dog.
