Sheila Adam McIntyre’s protagonists make readers recall the appeal of Tom Sawyer, Huckleberry Finn, and The Hardy Boys.

Gillette, NJ – WEBWIRE

The Secret in the Forest highlights the return of juvenile characters in adventure and mystery fiction.

Sheila Adam McIntyre published The Secret in the Forest (Infinity Publishing, 2010), her first teenage mystery novel that features her trademark characters Jonathan Taylor and Buzz Cameron, a pair of adventurous 13-year-old boys. Their recklessness and desire for adventure land them in a forbidden forest, a place with a scary, creepy reputation.
Readers see a bit of Tom Sawyer, Huckleberry Finn, and The Hardy Boys in Jonathan and Buzz, who enter the forest despite grave warning from their parents. As the two boys dig deeper into the mysterious woodlands, they stumble upon a “secret” – startling evidence to a serious crime. Because the cops won’t believe them and their parents are sure to punish them for their stubbornness, Jonathan and Buzz have to solve the crime on their own.
McIntyre’s The Secret in the Forest keeps alive the use of teenage boys and children characters in general as a protagonist in adventure and mystery fiction. The novel truly embodies the American ideal of boyhood and the youthful sense of adventure. McIntyre puts juvenile characters back  in the adventure and mystery genres.
The Secret in the Forest was one of McIntyre’s two books that were displayed at the recently concluded 2017 BookExpo America. The other one was The Cave in the Forest.
