Summary from Goodreads:

Myths and monsters collide with climate chaos in a thrilling fantasy adventure.
Spring has arrived in Brooklyn, New York, but winter refuses to let go. Sleet, snow, and even a tornado batter the city. Mr. Ross, the science teacher, believes climate change is the cause, but classmates Edward, Feenix, Danton, and Brigit suspect older, magical forces are at work. When a peculiar character calling himself Superintendent Tiltersmith appears with a keen interest in the foursome, their suspicions are confirmed, and they’re swept up in a battle of wits and courage.

The friends must protect a set of mysterious tools belonging to the Lady of Spring. If they can free her from her underground prison, winter will end. But if the Tiltersmith steals the tools, he will keep the Lady in his power and upset the balance of nature forever.

This was a fun exhilarating ride that brought me back to my childhood.

I think most every child dreams of crazy adventures, but I don't think they would have ever imagined something this amazing. Amy Herrick has written a wonderful tale of mystery, suspense and thrills that caters to the mind of the younger generation.

We follow a group of classmates as they are thrown into a world of mystery. Their characters are each unique, but fit well together. They're smart and cunning. They feel the urgency, but also have the mindset to err on caution. Their world, although mundane as a school can be, is still so full of wonder. 

I enjoyed the ease of reading this story and the fun adventure unfolding before me. I will definitely be sharing this book with my kids.  

Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.
