Fourteen-year-old Charlotte receives a drone, and sets out to validate her grandma’s lifelong belief that the elusive lake monster, Dottie, exists. Despite the town’s pervasive mockery of her grandmother’s belief, Charlotte manages to capture footage of the mythical creature. However, her decision to share the video online results in an overwhelming media storm and numerous monster hunters threatening harm to Dottie. In Gail Anderson-Dargatz’s new book for ages 9-12, Spotting Dottie (Orca $10.95) we will find out if Charlotte defends her newfound discovery or opt to let Dottie safely remain a mysterious legend within the town. 9781459834828
