Like Pencils Down, H20 is a summer adventure, but Tony, the main character, is a rising eighth grader with new experiences and challenges through service projects with scouts and church, conservation project with scouts, and being a member of the Canby Falls Middle School Swim Team.
H20 has strong family and community involvement with Tony and his family and friends in helping the elderly and those with special needs.
The end of Tony's exciting summer takes place at the County Championship Swim Meet and the surprise for the team afterwards.
H20 is appropriate for and will appeal to readers in the nine to fourteen age range, depending on their reading levels and interests. The writer's intent is to appeal to reluctant readers also.
The market for H20 will be elementary and middle school libraries - public, private, church and parochial, public libraries, bookstores, and children's book clubs.
