Ada Ru is anything but happy. She doesn't like their new home, she hates haggis, and she certainly doesn't like the idea that she will be away from her best friend all summer. To top it all off, there is said to be a monster in the lake near their house! That's when she meets Hamish Bean Timmy, Hammy Bean for short, captain of the Nessie Quest Monster Chaser boat tour. He knows everything there is to know about the fabled Loch Ness Monster and Scotland. But as the two unlikely friends embark on an epic adventure to spot the lake monster, they end up discovering more than they ever could have imagined.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Ada Ru is motivated, headstrong, and sassy with a big heart, and readers will have a blast exploring Loch Ness with her. Booklist  "This adventure charms in every way.
Nessie may elude us still, but this friendship-driven quest should not do the same…. Family ties, found friendships, and community support give this novel its heart. Kirkus Reviews
“Hats off to narrator Rachel L. Jacobs! Not only does she get inside the soul of a twelve-year-old girl, but she also brings lilting Scottish brogues to a cast of unique supporting characters…Jacobs highlights the inflections, sarcasm, mercurial confidence, and cocky esprit of Ada Ru. And Jacobs’s Scottish lilt is music for the ears. The production concludes with a note from the author. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
“This adventure charms in every way.” School Library Journal
