J. G. Kemp
Author and science educator J.G. Kemp weaves the wonder of astronomy, technology, and science history into this fast-paced, adventure mystery, set in the near future. Book 1 in The Journals of Evergreen Isle series, a science education fiction series for middle grade readers and up.
Like the mythical princess Andromeda, who was chained to a rock and left to be devoured by a terrible sea monster, 11 year old Mary Andromeda is powerless - held captive in her cruel uncle’s mansion since her mother left her, six years ago. But when an unexpected gift and a sudden turn of events brings her to Evergreen Isle, a mysteriously abandoned island-of-science, she begins to learn the truth: about her mother’s departure, the plans of a secret society, and her own place in an ancient family of astronomers. Follow Mary as she solves the puzzles which lead to a stunning climax: involving a camera, a telescope, a secret map, and the Andromeda Galaxy itself.
Written in the tradition of page-turners such as Harry Potter and A Series of Unfortunate Events, and described by an English teacher as "Indiana Jones meets Bill Nye", Mary Andromeda and the Amazing Eye is a thrilling adventure, sure to encourage a deeper appreciation of science and nature.
