Clay doesn't believe in dragons. Then again, there was a time when he didn't believe in magic, either...
Earth Ranch isn't what it seems. Ostensibly a camp for juvenile delinquents, it's actually a camp for young magicians. Clay is just getting used to the place when a young castaway, Brett, washes up on the shores of the remote volcanic island that is the camp's home. Clay offers help and swears secrecy, only to discover that Brett may be part of a nefarious scheme to capture a dragon rumored to be hidden on the island. Clay begins to wonder if dragons might really exist--and exist right in his backyard--and whether Brett is who he says he is. With help from his magically-gifted friends, Clay finds and frees the dragon, helps save innocent Brett from scheming enemies, and even discovers his own magical talent (and long lost brother, Max-Ernest from The Secret Series).
Danger, adventure, mischief, mystery, old foes, new friends, and a certain terribly clever narrator make bestselling author Pseudonymous Bosch's second book in the Bad Books trilogycompletely irresistible in this three-book series.
"Bosch fans will be thrilled at the reappearance of characters from his Secret Series, but the good fun and solid adventure will delight new readers just the same. ...An excellent addition to middle grade collections."
"Bosch's humorous, intrusive narration is liberally applied to this engaging adventure...Readers will be thoroughly entertained by this second installment in the Bad Books series."
Pseudonymous Bosch is the infamously anonymous author of the New York Times bestselling Secret Series and the Bad Books. Despite rumors to the contrary, his books are not actually written by his pet rabbit, Quiche; the rabbit is merely his typist.
