The Beach Kids in Oceans of Trouble (Soft Cover)
by Elizabeth Taylor « View this author's BIO
Jazz jumped back out of Splitter's reach. Like little leopards, the kids were on the run. Jazz turned around to see Kat holding her boyfriend back. She heard Kat say, 'Chill out, Splitter. They're just nosey kids.'
The foursome didn't wait to see if Splitter would chill out. They scrambled through the tunnel and raced down the beach. They didn't stop until they were in front of the Sugarman's pink house.
'Whew! That was close,' Sarah puffed. Beads of sweat hugged her hairline.
'Scary, but it was awesome to be almost chased by bad guys.' Badger plopped onto the beach to catch his breath. 'By the way,' he puffed, 'I still want my snack. I'm starving.'
'That jerk is probably too chicken to really chase us.' Jazz sat back on her elbows and stared at the clouds. Watching clouds always made her think of Basil.

A few years earlier, the kids had discovered a secret cove near their hometown of Luna Beach, California. One day they meet two strangers, Kat and Splitter. Splitter wants to have a bonfire up at Luna Park. Jazz knows that's a bad idea. Later that night the kids hear a loud explosion from the park.
Who started the blaze? What clue does Jazz find near the charred shed in the park that makes her think she knows who started the fire?
