A rescue mission leads Jay and Lila Cooper to a doomed South Sea Island where nothing is as they expected. Instead of a primitive civilization, the Coopers encounter a busy colony with a mysterious leader claiming to be Adam MacKenzie, a missionary once presumed dead. To add to the confusion, someone seems to have pushed the island's self-destruct button. Earthquakes and erosion are tearing the island apart, and every moment is precious in the Coopers' search for the real Adam MacKenzie.
Escape from the Island of Aquarius is a page-turning tale of action, stolen identity, and nail-biting cliffhangers. You will not be able to put it down! Recommended for ages 10 to 14, 160 pages.

He has a way
of including you into the story. You feel as if you are
there with Dr. Cooper, Jay and Lila. This book had me on
the edge of my seat. Couldn't put it down. And of course
the message of Christianity is woven into the story as it
should be day by day. I wish he would write more.
Chance Chastain5 Stars Out Of 5February 10, 2010Chance ChastainWe have a young, reluctant reader who is hooked on this series. What a wonderful blessing to have him look forward to reading time each day and constantly tell us what happened in his story. He really enjoys the characters and is starting to see a reality of why we choose to live a life for Jesus. Thank you for providing quality entertainment.

When they arrive, they discover a man claiming to be Adam who has declared himself the leader of a bizarre colony. The man claims his people want to live in peace away from the modern world. But people keep dying. And when Jay, Lila, and their father start investigating, they become the next targets of the mysterious Moro-Kunda. And to make matters worse, the island is in big trouble. Earthquakes and erosion are tearing the island apart. Will the Coopers have enough time to find the real Adam MacKenzie before the island destroys itself? I enjoyed this Cooper Kids book almost more than the first. This one didn't have the political issues that the first had, which was the hardest part for my son to sit through. Peretti is such a creative author. The things he comes up with and the way he pulls them off amaze me. He has the mind of a movie director. I loved the action and the mystery in this one. It was exciting and the Cooper kids showed true courage and faith as they experienced the Island of Aquarius. Highly recommended for readers of all ages.
CMR5 Stars Out Of 5March 6, 2009CMRSo much adventure! I was amazed at how much of it Peretti could fit in 160 pages. This has a great plot and describes the character's emotions so well. There are also a few suprises along the way (which I love!). I don't really care for so much description, but the tale is so exciting, it's definitely worth the time!
