The Last Station Master: A Boy, A Terrorist, A Secret, And Trouble by S.A.M. Posey Review & Giveaway

On his grandparents’ remote North Carolina farm for the summer, Nate discovers there’s more happening on the rambling property than anyone realizes. To stop a terrorist’s plot and prevent a military disaster, he must unravel the clues around him and use what he learns about the farm, the Underground Railroad, and the lost secrets of an old ghost to become the Last Station Master.

Nate Daniels gets into some trouble so his parents decide to send him off to his grandparents for the summer.   Expecting a humdrum summer, without any action or fun, Nate's summer doesn't start off quite like he expected.  His flight to his grandparents is detained and searched when it becomes apparent that a possible terrorist is onboard.

Nate is soon released to his grandparents but is a bit stymied when he finds a thumb drive in his pocket - a thumb drive he has never seen before.  Add that to his confusion about the farm.  It's a big mansion with it's own ghost and a mystery.  

From there, the adventure really takes off.  With the would-be terrorist looking for his flash drive, the steep underground railroad history at the farm and two new friends that Nate met on the plane, there's nothing boring about his summer.  Posey does an excellent job of mixing history, adventure and suspense into a young adult book that will keep you thoroughly entertained.  The plot is solid and the characters likable.  Highly recommend!

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.
