When Jim and Staci Kirk’s parents go missing, he decides to go and search for them himself. Unbeknownst to him, his sister and their best friend Lou, stow away to join him. It seems so simple on paper, sail from England to the Philippines and find the Kirks. But a hurricane named Erika and a relentless shark conspire against them to make the voyage one of the most perilous trips the three teenagers have lived. Can they endure the danger? Will they find the Kirks alive or does God have another idea in mind?
Three teens, a forty-foot boat, two oceans, and a mission: what could go wrong? Plenty! Clare Revell takes readers on an adventure of a lifetime as her young characters encounter one danger after another on their quest to rescue Mr. and Mrs. Kirk after authorities have given up the search. A mysterious man adds to the tension, as does the need for constant vigilance for police who are trying to track them.
November Charlie is book one of a three-book series, and teens will want to read all three books. I give November Charlie four stars out of five. I was given a pre-release pdf copy in return for my honest review.
