Martin Mordecai - Blue Mountain Trouble

Blue Mountain Trouble

Author: Martin Mordecai

  • AGES 9 - 12 
  • Genre Fiction
Tucked high in the Jamaica Blue Mountains is Top Valley, home to twelve-year-old twins: the sharp-eyed (and sharp-mouthed) Pollyread Gilmore and her brother, Jackson, who's always up for (and in) trouble.

But the twins aren't going to have to look too hard for mischief: The town jailbird, a young thug named Jammy, is back and for some reason he's targeting the Gilmore family. With the twins' mother sick and their father distracted, it's up to Jackson and Pollyread to take on Jammy and keep their family strong.

Martin Mordecai tells the story of twelve-year-old Jamaican twins in a lilting Caribbean voice we've never heard before.
