In Night of the Howling Dogs by Graham Salisbury, Dylan is a kid in a scout troop in Hawaii. His best friend is in the troop and his best friend’s dad is the troop leader. The troop is going on a hiking and camping trip on a beach below an ancient volcano. The trip is beautiful and wonderful except for one thing–there is a new kid in the troop too, a tough, troubled kid who Dylan once had a run-in with, who seems intent on making this camping trip miserable for him. Oh, and did I mention the magnitude 7.2 earthquake and tidal wave that comes and nearly wipes them all out? These developing characters get put to the ultimate test of survival in a gripping adventure tale based on a true story! Yow!
