Angela and Emmie want to make the soccer team next year at school, so they're committed to walking an hour a day to get fit. They're soon venturing far out of town and discover a beautiful and mysterious piece of land. Everyone calls it Dynamite Point, but no one knows why—and soon the girls discover that someone is going to destroy this stunning place for a new subdivision, wrecking deer habitat and ruining one of the last old-growth forests around. Who's putting up luxury homes at Dynamite Point? What is Dynamite Point? And why does something seem not quite right about this whole affair?

Tom Schwarzkopf is the author of the three novels in the Angela and Emmie Adventure series, including Danger at Mason's Island, which was nominated for the OLA Silver Birch Award. Tom has been a professional writer/organizational communicator, training course developer and English professor.
