Gr 4-7–For budding naturalist Magnolia Stone, exploring the backcountry of Yellowstone National Park is a dream come true. She is there with her family and her adventuresome best friend, Nate, who produces The Conspiracy Squad on YouTube. Nate is a fan of the supernatural, and he is convinced that Bigfoot inhabits Yellowstone and is determined to document it. Maggie’s father is a park ranger and Nate believes that he is part of conspiracy to keep Sasquatch secret. Maggie and Nate get more than they bargained for when they find themselves separated from the group after an earthquake disrupts their trip. Finding themselves lost and possibly hunted by rogue Komodo dragons, they then discover they are on the set of a Finn Brody documentary, which is a once-in-a lifetime, big deal in their book! Readers will appreciate that author Short has a background as a science reporter.
VERDICT A thrilling, fast-paced adventure book where readers discover awe-inspiring science with interesting and diverse characters.
