    This was the Goonies in middle grade book format. To an adult's mind, it will definitely seem deriviative, but to a child's mind, pure adventure! I had a good time reading it and enjoyed the non stop action/adventure/danger. ...

    This was a good old fashioned mystery for children. My caution would be that the author did use some language that wasn't needed as usual, but could be something you wouldn't want your kids to read. That's too bad. ...

    I picked up this book for my nephews. They are boy scouts and cub scouts. I figured they would have a fun time reading this book. While, I did like this book; I know that my nephews will enjoy it a lot more. This is fine as this book is written and geared towards the younger reading au...

    Adventurous kids, an asteroid, strange things, and a great cover...and 2/3 of the way through I realized I just didn't care what happened. Perhaps the target audience of 4th-6th graders will care. ...

    Perfect for reluctant readers in grades 4-6-boys and girls. Will be an easy "sell" to my students. I know several will come back to me ask if I have the sequel. Will have to purchase 2 copies. Made me think of Stand By Me and The Get Rich Club by Gutman. ...

    It's 1985, the summer before 7th grade for Annie, Rocky, Fynn and Beans, a group of kids known as the Scouts. After witnessing a meteorite crashing to the ground, the scouts decide it would be fun to track down the aftermath of the meteorite. It also could be worth a lot of money. The ...

    Annie, Beans, Flynn and Rocky are the Scouts. They go on campouts together and often get in trouble. This time they are off to watch a meteor shower. Unforunately, Flynn's cousin Scarlet has to come along. Annie is annoyed that the boys keep paying attention to Scarlet because she is a...

    I agree with all of the reviews on the cover of this book cover.It gave me totally Goonies vibes.If we are lucky in life,whether as kids or adults,adventures with friends should definitely be included.I loved the differences in character of each person.They all made a contribution to w...

    Summer 1985 Annie and her friends (all boys) are in for an adventure when they go camping and decide to explore the remnants of a meteor they see crash to earth. Has the hallmarks of all your favorite 80s movies (think Goonies and Indiana Jones): skeletons, evil kidnapping adults, cave...

    One of my jobs allows me to set up book displays, and I like getting an idea of what I'd like to put on those displays by actually reading the material. I had a very specific idea in mind, of getting together books that are similar to the television show Stranger Things. The descriptio...

    While I have not been completely impressed with some of the ?Patterson Presents? books, Greenland?s Scouts has a lot to offer my 4th and 5th grade library patrons and nothing that might set off any warning lights with the adults who love them. Annie, Beans, Rocky and Fynn, who ca...

    More of a 3.5 This was a good adventure! I read it because it's a middle grade, and those aren't as involved and complex as a YA book would be, and I needed to distract myself from all of this hurricane business. I loved this group. It felt very reminiscent of that Stephen King nove...

    This was a fun read. Great book for summer. I thought there could be a little more story about the meteroid, like 3 more chapters. But that just leaves room for more adventures in future books. ...

    The premise was fascinating and instantly caught my attention, but there were far too many idea crammed into one space. The ending was a jumbled affair that let me down. This along with the strong adherence to gender roles turned me off from the story. I had initially though that 'Scou...

    I received this signed copy for free in an Instagram giveaway held by Shannon Greenland. My opinion is my own as usual. This was an adorable middle grade novel! We follow Annie, a girl going into 7th grade, and her group of friends, Rocky, Fynn and Beans, who call themselves The Sco...

    When they say part Goonies, part Stand by Me, they are not kidding. I think young tweens would find this entertaining. ...

    This book was non-stop action and adventure. Plus, there was some great character development. The main character of the book just finished sixth grade. I would say this book is perfect for grades 5-7. However, it would work for grades 4-8. I am grateful to have won an ARC of this ...

    As a reader... Scouts definitely kept my attention- there was always something happening with no lagging in the story at all. The story was interesting and well-written, and I loved the characters. I didn't love the ending, though, and I felt like it needed more explanation. I enjoyed...
