Hello Gemmies! I have a new cover reveal to share with you today. My favorite Latina Marine Biologist has a new middle grade book series. Wild Survival Crocodile Rescue by Melissa Cristina Marquez is an environmental action adventure and the first book in the series. This series is based on Melissa Cristina Marquez's real-life wildlife encounters. You can be sure there will be plenty of real crocodile facts, fun, action, and adventure.
Synopsis of Wild Survival Crocodile Rescue from Goodreads:
Twelve-year-old Adriana Villalobos and her older brother Feye travel the globe with their parents, the hosts of a suspenseful nature show called "Wild Survival!" The show features daring animal rescues and the work the family does at their animal sanctuary. They've recently gotten an offer to take the show from YouTube to a TV network, and Adriana is thrilled. So far, she's always been behind the scenes, but now she gets to join the rest of her family onscreen. She can't wait to bring her passion for animals to a wide audience.
Their first stop is the lush mangrove forests of Cuba, where they're going to help rescue an injured crocodile. But things get off to a rocky start when Feye is injured in an accident partially caused by Adrianna. The status of the show is in jeopardy, and Adrianna's parents want her back behind the scenes, or maybe even back at home.
Adrianna is determined to prove herself, and save the show-whatever it takes. Even if that means confronting the legendary Mega Croc of Cuba that's rumored to inhabit the murky waters around their base camp.
