Last In A Long Line of Rebels

There are so many amazing books being published. And there are so many authors out there that are already well known.  I am constantly looking for the debut novelist who has written an amazing book, but whose work is not getting the recognition it deserves.  

Last In a Long Line of Rebels is a debut novel by Lisa Lewis Tyre that is a great tween/middle grade novel set in the present day, weaving the past into a suspenseful storyline.

Lou is part of an eccentric family living in a small town in Tennessee. While other kids talk about their summer trips, she has nothing exciting to say about her own life.  Except that she lives in a Civil War era house, full of secret rooms and memories of her ancestors that lived there as well.

When Lou finds out that her house is condemned and scheduled to be torn down, she is more than a little upset.  She is also determined that she will save her house from being destroyed.

Helping her are her friends who are just as unique as Lou, and just as full of mischief. Lou decides that she will find the gold coins that were buried years ago by one of her ancestors, and her home will be saved.

However, finding these coins isn't easy, and there are lots of problems along the way.

I enjoyed this book immensely. This is a great story full of plenty to laugh at and to talk about.  I'm hoping Lisa Lewis Tyre keeps writing; I can't wait to read her next book.
