I am reviewing a copy of The Battle of Junk Mountain through Running Press Kids and Netgalley;
Shayne Whittaker has spent Summers on the Maine coast, visiting her Grandmother Bea and playing with her BFF Poppy. Both Grandmother and Granddaughter are collectors in their own way. Shayne loves the memories of seeking for sea glass and weaving friendship bracelets with Poppy, while Bea searches flea markets for valuable finds, which she often adds to a growing pile in her house that Shayne jokingly named Junk Mountain.
This Summer things have changed Poppy would rather talk about boys instead of bracelets. And Bea's collecting has turned into hoarding. The only one who pays attention to her is Linc, the strange Civil War obsessed kid next door.
What begins as the worst summer of Shayne's life may quickly become the most memorable!
I give The Battle of Junk Mountain five out of five stars!
