shadows of sherwood coverShadows of Sherwood: a Robyn Hoodlum adventure by Kekla Magoon
Recommended for: Grades 5-7

Overnight, Governor Crown, with help from a certain Sheriff, has engineered a takeover of the government. All members of Parliament and their families who might have opposed the takeover are imprisoned or killed, with one exception: 12-year old Robyn. Robyn comes home to find her family gone, and an ominous pool of blood on the kitchen floor. Now she is a fugitive. She needs to evade capture by government agents and try to find and rescue her parents. Luckily, she finds friends – other kids, each with unique talents that help the group. Together, they band together and do what they can to help others survive this new, militaristic state. Can the ancient legends about the moon help them? I loved this futuristic Robin Hood story.  It’s the first in a new series.
