Dead Low Tide—Do the Dead Stay Dead?

Dead Low Tide (Illuminate YA, 2019)

★ Shortlisted as a Selah Winner for Teen Fiction ★

On vacation with his parents in Savannah, Georgia, Nick Caden is eager to investigate the mystery surrounding Heidi May Laveau, a girl who supposedly died years ago but whose body just washed up on the shore. Once again, Nick’s curiosity gets the better of him, only this time he brings his sister, Wendy, along to investigate—and she’s taken by what appears to be a zombie of the dead girl!

Of course, no one believes Nick when he claims a member of the living dead pulled his sister away in a canoe, even after she proves impossible to find. But this “zombie” has a message for Nick from “beyond the grave.” Now he faces the difficult task of sorting fact from fiction before his worst fears come true. It’s a race against the clock to discover where the true danger lies. And the answer might be right under Nick’s nose.

Who knows what horrors will be found when the tide recedes?

Complete the “Official Criminal Inquiry” to see if you have the makings of a homicide detective. With questions at the back of the book, you can fill in the answers while you read. When finished, your book report should be thorough enough to catch a crook! Parents can trust the Caden Chronicles to be safe reading for children. There is no sexual dialogue or situations, violence, or strong language, only a wee bit of humor. 🙂

Dead Low Tide is an excellent book for tweens, teens, and young adults who love a good mystery adventure.
