Expedition to Blue Cave

(Book #1 of Outriders)
Illustrated by: Sammy Yuen
For Ages: 8 - 12
FROM THE BLOG OF CAM WALKER

My friends and I call ourselves the Outriders. It's not like a club of anything, we just all hate the idea of ever being BORED, and when we set our minds on something, we don't ask anyone's permission, we just DO IT.

There's this place called Blue Cave, which glows blue ONCE EVERY SEVEN YEARS (phosphorescent plankton!). So obviously, we had to get there. But first we had to do three HUGE things:

1 ENACT THE "FREE SHELBY" PLAN
2 "SCAVENGE" (NOT STEAL, THERE'S A DIFFERENCE) THE GEAR WE NEED TO CROSS TWELVE MILES OF OPEN OCEAN
3 BE HOME BY 7:00 P.M.

My plan wasn't great, since it relied on a lot of luck. But everything worked perfectly -- except that Shelby's sister got kidnapped.

But that's a longer story.
