About this ebook

Eleven-year-old Ellis Ring doesn't know she's been blessed by a god . . . or has she been cursed? All Ellis cares about is suddenly being saddled with boy whiz kid, Will Seabury, who won't quit calling her Scamp! Well, maybe she did earn that nickname. But Ellis's world quickly becomes unhinged, when her father reveals that she's one of two people who can control a powerful ancient weapon. Things turn creepier as Ellis understands clues left behind by a sixteenth-century priest even if she's not sure what an astrolabe and the Lusiads are yet! Ellis journeys to find a mythical place and discovers new friends, plays Pato, and drinks from the Vine of the Soul to fulfill a destiny that awaits her, but at what human cost? Is she doomed to an unalterable future, or can Ellis shape her own fate?

About the author

 As a girl, I spent a lot of time with my grandmother. It was okay . . . maybe a little boring . . . until one day she took a box from the top shelf of the hall closet and set it on the floor. Inside was a treasure. Picture after picture emerged from the box, and with every picture came a new adventure. At that moment, she amazed me with all the exciting escapades she had lived through as a kid in the 1920s, not experiences in a mall or at the movies but real-life endangerment and true bodily peril! At one point, she lived on a million-acre ranch in the Altiplano of the Andes Mountains. I’m talking gunfights and gauchos here! She helped perform surgery on a kitchen table to remove a bullet from a gaucho at the age of twelve! She spoke five different languages (I’m not quite so bright). My grandmother was one of the most interesting people I have ever met. Many years have passed, but I still remember the stories. I wrote Scamp and the Legend of Laguna Verde to share those stories with you. GS Felton loves history, quests, and searching for clues. She also loves sailing on the ocean and navigating waterways, making her own mini adventures. When not on the water, she and her family live in Southside, Virginia.
