Scout: National Hero (Scout #1)
Twelve-year-old Matt is determined to help Scout feel at home in Nevada, but when a terrifying flash flood hits town, the pair must save the day and prove their worth.
As Scout and Matt team up to survive treacherous rising water, lead victims to safety, and attempt to rescue Matt’s sister, they quickly learn that bravery is just the first ingredient in the making of a hero. Does the duo have what it takes to protect their town from the fallout of this devastating disaster?
Perfect for fans of Max, Hero, and Cracker!
The details about dog training are exceptional, and I can see younger readers using these books to try to train their dogs to search and find younger siblings!
These books are short, action-packed, and featuring engaging dogs and humans. The inclusion of extreme sports in this made it stand out from the others. The cover! A lot of students will pick this up!
The Hero series by this author as well as her Max : Best Friend, Hero, Marine are also great adventure books, and some of the Dog Diaries by Kate Klimo, especially Togo and Sparky are great to hand to readers who enjoy this book.
