Overview

City kid Corbett "Griffy" Griffith III can't wait for summer vacation to begin. The twelve-year-old's annual trip to his uncle's Wisconsin fishing resort promises more than adventure and mischief this time around. It offers Griffy a much-needed break from his mom's new boyfriend in Chicago and much-needed time with his busy dad up at Whispering Pines Lodge.

Determined to impress his absentee father, Griffy enlists the help of Pike, his best friend at Whispering Pines, to master everything about boating and fishing. He'll brave the smelly, torture chamber-like fish house. He'll battle the vibrating motor on the Lucky 13. Griffy will do whatever it takes to get his father's attention. Even a knife injury and a near capsize won't keep him from completing his goal.

When a vicious snakehead fish is caught in the waters of Lost Land Lake, the summer takes a sudden and disastrous turn. Strange events lead Griffy to one disappointment after another. He and Pike must unravel a mystery that pits them against a trusted friend and an invasive species fierce enough to ruin the lake and the livelihood of everyone on it.

Can Pike and Griffy save Lost Land Lake before it's too late?

Meet the Author

G. M. Moore is a former newspaper writer, editor and columnist. She currently works as a magazine art director and writes fiction as a hobby. The author grew up battling game fish and exploring the lakes of northern Wisconsin, and uses that state's enchanting wilderness as her muse. During the summer months, you can still find the Chicago-area author "up north" and out on the lake.

Moore is currently at work on "Ghosts of Manitowish Waters," her first young adult book. She is also the author of a middle grade action-adventure series. The Up North Adventure series includes, "Muskie Attack" (Book 1), "Ancient Elk Hunt" (Book 2) and "Snakehead Invasion" (Book 3).

Moore was inspired to write her first book, "Muskie Attack", by her then 9-year-old nephew who, in a literary world filled with fantasy, was struggling to find books that appealed to his outdoor interests and adventurous spirit.

When not writing, Moore can be found walking her dog, Piper, or feeding the fish, birds and flying squirrels in her Snow White-like backyard.

    The book Snakehead Invasion by G. M. Moore promises to keep the

    The book Snakehead Invasion by G. M. Moore promises to keep the reader interested as each adventure unfolds. This Juvenile Fiction is the third book in the series called An Up North Adventure. The setting takes place at the lakes of Northern Wisconsin where we follow Griffy and Pike through many dangerous situations. The boys become entangled in a mystery that can ruin the lake and the livelihood of everyone on it.

    I would highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys the great outdoors and the sport of fishing. This book goes into gory details on how to dissect a fish which is sure to interest boys. It is fun to follow the strange events that take place in The Lost Land Lake while we enjoy figuring out if Griffy and Pike can solve the mystery. G. M. Moore has captured the art of telling an exciting story through this series. (reviewed by M.Hicks)
