Readers will carry it with them long after they've turned the last page.From the Author:
In OONAWASSEE SUMMER, I have tried to recapture the beauty and magic of a childhood spent climbing giant oak trees, going crabbing, and exploring the Florida backwoods. In the story of Addie and Tanner, I have tried to recreate the mysteries discovered by children everywhere who love nature, excitement, and adventure. My hope is that OONAWASSEE SUMMER will pull children outdoors, away from their television sets and video games, and back into the arms of trees waiting to be climbed and streams waiting to be crossed. -- Melissa Forney
