Hamilton C. Burger
"Even though my boys are grown, I found myself wishing they were young again so they could read NO EXIT (The Apple Grove Gang). This book is beyond refreshing - a great story about kids who still play outside, know people in their town and have an adventure that makes a difference in their lives. When the gang runs up against local politics that threaten their community center they find out how tough it is to fight city hall. Hamilton C. Burger's obvious delight in his craft shines through on every page. The kids in this book have real voices and real lives. No dungeons, dragons or wizards here, rather a book that will make both parents and young readers happy. Thank goodness there will be more in the Apple Grove Gang series."
Rebecca Forster - USA Today Best Selling Author of the acclaimed Witness Series.
A well written - and with brilliantly graphical descriptions - tale
where The Apple Grove Gang romps through the days when people cared what happened to our neighbourhood and were prepared to "stand up" against wrongdoing!
The gang's adventure's will strike a chord with many of us kids (from 6 to 60) and, with a "twist in the tail" ending this book makes me want to get to their next adventure without delay and the next....and the next....and the ones that come after that! The author Hamilton C Burger is an exponent in his craft as he draws from personal experiences and endows his characters with very real voices making this first
book in the series highly suitable for readers of all ages.
