About the book
"A refreshingly imaginative, emotionally satisfying quest for all ages--The villain and resolution are wonderfully original."
--Kirkus Reviews

The Last Akaway recently won the bronze medal in the 2013 Moonbeam Children's Book Award for Pre-Teen Fiction-Fantasy.

An Akaway is a rare and magical creature that connects you to your spirit animal. Once you’re connected, you have all the special powers that your spirit animal possesses. But those powers are in serious jeopardy when the diabolical Uncle Skeeta tricks 11-year-old Brody Boondoggle into helping him steal the Akaway’s spirit – not an easy task.

Now, aided by his skeptical big brother, Jake, and guided by his quirky Grammy, Brody must lead the way on an adventure to defeat Uncle Skeeta, save the last Akaway, and protect the special powers of kids everywhere.
