The first installment of The Girls of Harbor View bind-ups by bestselling author Melody Carlson includes books one and two, Project: Girl Power and Project: Mystery Bus, and follows the adventures of sixth graders Morgan, Amy, Carlie, and Emily in tiny Boscoe Bay, Oregon---unlikely friends bound together by their desire to make their trailer park---and the world---a better place.
Melody Carlson has written more than 200 books for teens, women, and children. Before publishing, Melody traveled around the world, volunteered in teen ministry, taught preschool, raised two sons, and worked briefly in interior design and later in international adoption. 'I think real-life experiences inspire the best fiction,' she says. Her wide variety of books seems to prove this theory.
