Arlo Finch in the Valley of Fire by John August
When Arlo Finch moves to Pine Mountain, Colorado, he has no idea what's in store for him in this tiny town full of mystery and magic. When he joins the Rangers, Pine Mountain's version of the Boy Scouts, it leads him into adventures he never thought possible. Wilderness and magical powers collide throughout the beautiful, dense forest surrounding his new home, and as Arlo begins to learn the way of the Rangers, he also discovers courage, strength, and a destiny he never knew he possessed. Screenwriter and long-time Tim Burton collaborator John August has created a new fantasy adventure trilogy that draws readers in from the very first page and introduces them to an exciting new world of magic and danger so believable that you may wonder if it exists in your own backyard.
