It is 1884, and Molly and Cassandra Pepper,
Emmett Lee, and Emmett’s long-lost father are sailing back to New York following their death-defying adventure in Antarctica. Having discovered a subterranean world at the South Pole while saving the world from certain doom once again, surely their accomplishments will finally earn them the recognition they deserve.
Unless, of course . . . well, you know by now.
And so do the Peppers and Lees. They’re used to having
their deeds covered up by the government in order to
protect powerful men, and frankly, they’re sick of it. And
when their return to New York doesn’t go the way they’d
planned, they decide that maybe it’s best to go into hiding
and accept that, perhaps, the forces aligned against them are just too great.
As the 1884 presidential election approaches however, our heroes discover a plot against leading candidate Thomas Edison that only they can stop. It’ll be up to them to decide whether to come out of hiding, make the perilous journey to Washington, D.C., and do the right thing one last time. Even if it means risking everything they have left.
trilogy, including The Hero’s Guide to Saving Your Kingdom, a New York Times Book Review Editor’s choice, its two sequels, The Hero’s Guide to Storming the Castle and The Hero’s Guide to Being an Outlaw as well as the picture
