really liked it
Read from March 10 to 18, 2012

I realized a long time ago that I usually enjoy MG titles from Cedar Fort Publishing. I only review books I like well enough to recommend, and last year from Cedar Fort I reviewed multiple strong MG stories including: Guardians of the Hidden Scepter, The Last Archangel, Huber Hill and the Dead Man's Treasure, Skipping Stones at the center of the Earth, and more recently, Time Gangsters.

Crater Lake is another story I can gladly add to that list. I love the setting of this story. The kids (from different groups at first) are originally visiting Crater Lake National Park, some with parents and some with a scout troop. When things go big-time crazy, it's up to the kids to save their parents and return things to normal. They do that with a combination of courage, magic, friendship, and teamwork. The combination of wilderness adventure, Native American folklore, and local legend make this a very fun read.
