Ridley Pearson, author of the Kingdom Keepers series held a contest this past summer. He decided to seek input from his readers about how the series should end. He had over 150,000 entries from all over the world and all 50 states. Rising 8th grade student, Madi Burke, was chosen as a winner! Her acknowledgement appears at the end of the book along with the other winners and honorable mentions. Madi’s parents want to express their deepest gratitude to all the SCA teachers past and present who have motivated Madi’s love of reading and writing.
