Hurricane Rescue

Hero, #2

Written by Jennifer Li Shotz

This book is full of exciting, perilous adventure. It is fast paced and never lulls. When a hurricane hits, Ben and Hero, his amazing dog, are put to the test, saving not only their friends but their own lives. You do not have to read the first book in the series to follow the story, but it would add more background for both Hero, the dog, and the main characters. The one downside is that while focusing on the action, Shotz falls a bit short developing the characters. You don’t really know much about Hero or the boys Ben, Jack and Noah. Readers who like action and animals will enjoy this series.
