Luke Houser and his friends enter their junior year at Missing Lake High School under extremely unusual circumstances after a tremendous forest fire kept the community on edge for months. The memory of the fire permeates all aspects of everyone’s lives, including those of the incredible secret dragon family who live up north. Luke makes a new canine friend through his step-mom’s veterinary clinic and Chase plays an important role despite not being one of the family’s beloved sled dogs.
The silver dragon, Zagros has some serious news for his young Dragoneer that will impact the entire dragon realm, particularly the young dragons, Helios and Cassiel. Luke has to process this information all while a crisis unfolds during English class. Luke has to make some serious choices that challenge the sometimes awkward sixteen-year-old but he cannot share them with anyone without risking the discovery of the magnificent dragons.
This is the fourth book in the Missing Lake series that follows a reluctantly intrepid young man’s journey into adulthood with his family, friends, dogs, cats and dragons by his side.

REVIEW By LAWonder10:
Runaways of Missing Lake is the fourth book in a series but can easily be read as a "stand alone". As with all series, I am certain it would feel more complete if one had read others first.
This is a mix of contemporary and fantasy. It is a story of a teenage boy, his relationships and, also, his connection with the changing world of dragons - one family in particular. This is sure to appeal to many youth. It is an interesting approach to interactions between humans and animals. It is also a story of friendship, parental/child interactions, life events, including trauma, and the sport of "mushing".
The drama of everyday life in a couple of years, include enough action and a few "twists" to appeal to the reader's curiosity, thus , maintaining interest. The end of the story gives a definite lead into the next book of the series.
The characters are portrayed well, with an interestingly realistic variety. The events are, also, described in detail, enabling the reader to "experience" the events. The Title and Book Cover are well-chosen.
I offer a Four Stars rating for this book.
*This book was gifted me with no pressure for a positive review. This is my honest review.
