Fletcher the friendly sea turtle and his bickering barnacle buddies, Barney and Barry, are searching for a permanent home on Dodo Island. But when Wink, a one-eyed seagull, crash lands into them, they are soon on a mission to help him return home. Thanks to Babs the dodo, they’ll have a bird’s eye view of the ocean and Wink’s nesting ground. But only if she can escape from an oil spill. It will take the help, and smarts, of all the MySeaBuddies, and their new friend Wink, to rescue Fletcher’s one true love.
LOST AND FOUND continues where BARNEY AND BARRY, THE HITCHHIKERS left off with its lovable and enduring characters, and their wonderful underwater world, navigating their adventurous lives. It’s the second book in Sharon Powers MySeaBuddies series.
Twenty-five years ago Jack and Kelly met. He can’t forget. She can’t remember. That’s because it hasn’t happened to her…yet. Kelly Reed leaves her tedious life in New York City to dive for a billion dollar sunken treasure in the Caribbean. During her first underwater exploration, she’s caught in a time warp and transported back in time twenty-five years. A group of scientists rescue her; scientists that are studying the area because they believe the rapid movement of the underwater currents can cause time travel. She mistakenly lets them know what she’s looking for and one of them becomes greedy. He wants her knowledge and kills a co-worker to get it. She escapes back to current time where she now finds several people have been anticipating her reappearance. One has grown from a boy to a man and has been waiting for her return to fulfill his boyhood fantasies of love. The others want the treasure and can’t find it without her.
