McCracken and the Lost Island by Mark Adderley Seeking adventure? Look no further! The year is 1913: the place, Europe. McCracken, inventor, engineer, big-game hunter, and faithful Catholic, tells the stories of his adventures in a series of novels made for everyone who loves adventure--but especially for boys. McCracken and the Lost Island is an adventure beneath the waves and atop a hidden land. The team assembles: Ariadne Bell, communications expert; Nicola Jaubert, deep sea diver; Vasili Sikorsky, airship pilot; and "Mac," McCracken, inventor and engineer. Together they find the lost island--but will its secrets prove too dangerous for a world at the edge of war? Review: This is the first book in the McCracken series by Mark Adderley. I’ve heard this series described as “Indiana Jones with a rosary” and that is a great description. This delightful book is perfect for middle school and high school boys who love adventurous novels.

McCracken’s strong faith and engineering genius make this character a fantastic role model for teens.

There are many fantastic Christian and Catholic teen novels out…read-more
