Publisher's Description

The Alec London Series is a series written for boys, 8 - 12 years old.  Alec London is introduced in Stephanie Perry Moore's previously released series, The Morgan Love Series.  In this new series, readers get a glimpse of Alec's life up close and personal. The series provides moral lessons that will aid in character development, teaching boys how to effectively deal with the various issues they face at this stage of life. The series will also help boys develop their english and math skills as they read through the stories and complete the entertaining and educational exercises provided at the end of each chapter and in the back of the book.

The school year is ending and Alec is looking forward to taking it easy, sleeping late and not having to deal with Tyrod for the summer.  He is also looking forward to his mom coming home. But, when his dad plans a party and his mom doesn't show Alec's hopes are crushed. He finds out that his mom  has decided to stay in L.A. a little longer. Rather than sulking all summer, Alec decides to try to make the best of it by hanging out with his friends at the new neighborhood pool.  But, his dad has other plans for him and Antoine. Dad has decided to sent them to a summer baseball camp.  Alec couldn't believe this, he hated baseball.  When Alec and Antoine goes to baseball camp, Alec is miserable.  Their coach is a drill sargeant and Tyrod shows up.  While Antoine is fast becoming buddies with Antoine Alec is struggling because he doesn't feel like anything he does pleases the coach. He wants to quit but his dad gives him a pep talk about winners never quitting. So, Alec stays in the program. Alec gets a big surprise when mom invites the family to come and visit.  The boys get a chance to tour the city with mom. When mom goes back to work she enrolls them in an acting camp.  Alec doesn't think much of the camp to start but soon he finds himself warming up to acting. Antoine become jealous of him when he gets a part in a commercial but Alec does his best to make his brother feel included.  Alec auditions for huge part on a Disney Show and gets a callback.  When she finds out, his mom tells him he can not accept the part because he has to go home.  Alec is not happy and does not know what to do. When they go to church, the pastor talks about pleasing God. Alec realizes that even when things don't go his way he should try to please God in all that he does and obey his parents.

    This is my second book to read by Ms. Moore and I must say I am just as impressed as I was by the first one! Her wholesome writing exemplifies godly character for young people to follow. Once again she is right on track with getting to the heart of the many challenges young people face and feelings that go with them.

    Summer is here and like most young boys, Alec has plans to goof off and sleep in but things don't quite turn out as he'd like. His spirits soar when he finds out his Mom will be able to get away from her out of town job and visit. The family goes all out and prepares for a big party. Last minute problems prevent her from coming and Alex is devastated. Instead of being upset he decides to spend a lot of time at the new pool with his friends. Wanting his sons to do something constructive with their time, their Dad enrolls them in a baseball camp! Not only can Alex not play baseball but he hates it! To make matters worse, Tyrod, the school bully is there and becomes buddies with his brother Antoine!

    Things seem to make a turn for the better when his mom flies him and Antoine to California to spend time with her. She enrolls them in an acting camp and the door opens for Alec to start a career in television! His Mom puts a stop to it and he doesn't understand why.

    Young people have a problem with getting upset when things don't go their way. This book has a powerful biblical lesson not only in how God wants them handle these situations but also how to apply this truth to their lives.

    As with all Ms. Moore's books there are word searches after each chapter and fun educational activities.

    I highly highly recommend these books for young boys or girls, not only for quality reading but instilling strong moral values and godly standards!
