Finalist blurb: The start of an exciting new series, Compass South follows twins Alex and Cleo on an epic adventure. From street gangs to pirate ships, jungles to the wild frontier we get to see Alex and Cleo set off in search of gold and find treasures much more valuable: good friends, clues about their mysterious past, and appreciation for family. Full color art, quick pacing, and interesting characters make this book a pleasure to read. The setup for the next book is solid, but the end of this volume is happy and satisfying.
