ABOUT THE BOOK

Archaeologist Dr. Michael Stone looked for the lost medallion his entire life, and now his son Billy has taken up the search. Amazingly, the medallion ends up in Billy's hands and a spontaneous wish in a precarious situation takes Billy and his best friend Allie, back 200 years to what they realize is a very different Aumakua Island. When Billy and his friends are not jumping off waterfalls, avoiding animal traps, crossing the ocean, sneaking through caves or escaping a prison they're facing their nemesis Cobra, who wants nothing more than for them all to disappear. With no other way to get home, and the well being of the entire island resting on his shoulders, Billy must discover the key to reclaiming the medallion and its tremendous power. One way or another, this adventure will change Billy, and life on the island, forever. Best-selling author and film director Alex Kendrick (The Love Dare, Courageous) and Youth for Christ veteran Bill Muir bring us this exciting novelization of The Lost Medallion movie.

My Review


I was excited to review a book for kids! This exciting new book is also a new movie, which I have not seen but I need to.
The start of this book starts before the actual book story takes place, then goes to present time. Billy goes on a search for a medallion and ends up in the middle of an exciting adventure and nemesis Cobra. With no other option they uncover a mystery and take you away on an island of excitement. While this story is very predictable it is a great book for kids, and I can see how it would be a good movie as well. 
I highly recommend to those with kids, I am not sure what age, maybe 5 and up?  Though it reads more as a young adult book so in order for the child to read they will need to be older. 

"I received this book from CFBA for free in exchange for an honest review."
