The Lost Code by Kevin Emerson

Hey guys!

TBF is in 40 days!! Who's excited?!

Here's another thing to be excited about: spring! Yes, I know, it doesn't exactly feel like spring here in Rochester. Especially considering we had snow flurries a couple of weeks ago. When I read The Lost Code by Kevin Emerson, I thought about another season: summer!

In the year 2086, Camp Eden promises summer “the way things used to be,” back before the oceans rose, the sun became a daily enemy, and modern civilization sank into chaos. Located inside the EdenWest BioDome, the camp is an oasis of pine trees, cool water, and rustic charm.

But all at Camp Eden is not what it seems.

No one will know this better than 15-year-old Owen Parker. A strange underwater vision, even stranger wounds on Owen’s neck, and a cryptic warning from the enchanting lifeguard Lilly hint at a mystery that will take Owen deep beneath Lake Eden and even deeper into the past. What he discovers could give him the chance to save the tattered planet. But first, Owen will have to escape Camp Eden alive…

Percy Jackson meets dystopian. Besides being a writer and playing in bands, Kevin Emerson is a science teacher (I don't understand how he does it!). There are some spit-balls of science facts but Kevin makes learning about it so much fun (science is not my strongest subject is school but thanks to Kevin, I like it more!). So readers, if you choose to read The Lost Code instead of spending an enermous amount of time studying and a parent walks in and scolds you, your response is, "Oh this book has a lot of information on science. I am studying." (I'm just kidding. Study because it will pay off in the end).

Maybe, if everyone reads The Lost Code, that might channel some warm weather and sunshine to Rochester...
