Young Whit Review and Giveaway!



About the Book




This Odyssey book series explores the history of the much-loved character John Avery Whittaker. The series introduces newcomers to the larger world of Odyssey. For readers who are already Odyssey-philes, the novels provide the history of the franchise’s most important character.

Whit and his family (father, Harold; stepmother, Fiona; half-sister, Charlie) have just moved to Provenance, NC, in the middle of the Great Depression. Harold will be teaching at nearby Duke University. Not-quite-10-year-old Johnny soon makes a friend in Emmy, who lives across the street and joins him in his adventures. At his new school, he encounters a bully who makes his life miserable, and he makes a new friend in Huck, the custodian. Both of them play key roles in the mysteries and action.

The central mystery in book 1 involves Confederate gold missing since the end of the Civil War and the question of whether Johnny’s ancestor was the coward and thief who stole it, as everyone believes.

My Perspective


I love Adventures in Odyssey, and wish they were around when I was a kid. Or at least, I wish I would have known about them lol. They are so fun to read for all ages really, yet educational at the same time. What’s even better is there’s a map in the front of the book! I am a visual person so I found this to not only be exciting, but extremely helpful in seeing the setting. I absolutely loved seeing a different side of Whit, and a different time in his life. Whether you’re new yo Adventures in Odyssey, or a vet, you’ll love this story. I encourage you to read it no matter how old you are. Read it with your kids, grandkids, neighbors, or church group!

I received a complimentary copy of this book. I was not required to write a favorable review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
