Greyson Gray: Camp Legend by B.C. Tweedt

Kirkus Reviews declares it "always entertaining", Foreword Clarion Reviews calls it "just basic fun", and Publishers Weekly describes it as a "high-octane thrill fest". Discover the hype yourself with the first of the thrilling Greyson Gray Series.

Sports Camp has everything twelve-year-old Greyson Gray needs to distract him from his father's mysterious disappearance - intense athletic competition, weird friends, and a pretty girl.

But when Greyson stumbles upon a terrorist's sinister plot brewing in the observatory, a place already haunted by a chilling camp legend, he suddenly toils with two dueling worlds - one of lurking danger and mystery, the other of competition and awkward romance. Spurred on by his father's words to do what's good no matter the danger, Greyson and his faithful friends must mount a daring and coordinated heist on the observatory in order to save thousands of lives.

Threaded with witty, sarcastic humor and gritty suspense, Camp Legend puts you in Greyson's shoes not only as he battles evil in thrilling chases, but also as he deals with his awkward first crush, menacing bullies, and the loss of his father. Prepare to laugh out loud and fall in love with the characters as the Greyson Gray series begins with a bang.

About the Author

B.C. Tweedt lives in North Liberty, Iowa with his beautiful wife, Julie. Because he can be a big kid at times, even at the age of 29, he enjoys hanging with other kids. He taught literature and history at a private middle school, but now focuses on writing, volunteering at a youth group, and mentoring boys in his free time. There is nothing he loves more than seeing kids grow in wisdom and character. The characters in the Greyson Gray series are a conglomeration of many of the real personalities and humors he knows and interacts with on a daily basis. Because of this, kids feel the characters are authentic and relatable.

B.C. Tweedt has plans for a fairly long series, following Greyson as he grows up in an increasingly divided and threatening world. B.C. has thoroughly enjoyed brainstorming ideas for this series while running, listening to epic movie soundtracks, and researching in exotic places like the Bahamas.

I really enjoyed this book. It teaches very good moral values to our young readers. It was entertaining for all ages. I read this book because the author went to college with my daughter. I hope he continues this series.

Engrossing, entertaining, and frequently hilarious. The only reason it did not get 5 stars was for the editing and vocabulary issues: Reigns vs. Reins. Breathes vs. Breaths. Desert vs. Dessert, etc. I absolutely hold you to a much higher standard when you are writing for kids and teens and are overtly teaching them wrong! Or, when they see something that may confuse them when/if they look it up in the dictionary! No excuses for that!!! Clean up your act!
