Sign Of The Green Dragon by C. Lee McKenzie

August 3, 2016

510nbW0muRL._AC_US160_

A boy named Sam, orphaned by a tragic loss, and an Uncle forced into an unwilling parenthood. Two boys, Joey, and Roger bring friendship and some stability into Sam’s life, and Carmela, the nurturer, who in many ways is the surrogate mother, that keeps caring and loving alive in Sam’s heart.

Sign Of The Green Dragon tells the story of a boy who wants to help his team win the district baseball championship. Torn between with his desire to help his team, and his Uncle’s wish to send him to boarding school, the center stage is set.  C. Lee McKenzie does an excellent job of weaving this into a multicultural tale.

Think C.S. Lewis and the world of Narnia,

See kids separated from their parents,

Imagine the magical closet,

And you will find yourself sinking into C. Lee McKenzie’s world.

Like Lewis, McKenzie bids us to walk with Sam, Joey, and Roger. We feel the suspense as he and his two friends, find the large wooden chest and our hearts beat quickly when they discover the Sign of the Green Dragon.

I like the way McKenzie grabs our attention with her opening line.

So, what did I do wrong this time?

 It is Sam thinking aloud, twisted in his feelings toward his uncle as he sits opposite him.

A fan of Nancy Drew, a character created by Edward Stratemeyer, I enjoy young adult mysteries, and Sign of the Green Dragon is indeed an excellently well-crafted mystery that will keep you turning the pages.  It presents the character, maturation, strength, and courage wrapped around one boy’s desire to help.

Book Tip: This week only, Sign of the Green Dragon can be purchased at Amazon for 99 cents.  So get your copy now. I have just purchased mine.
