Book Overview

The Last Last-Day-of-Summer reminds me that all children deserve to exist in magical spaces where their imaginations and familial bonds will them into heroism. Every single child should have the freedom to be one of The Legendary Alstons. And I, for one, am grateful to Giles, and this brilliant story, for that reminder. --Jason Reynolds, author of Newbery Honoree Long Way Down

The legendary heroes of this legendary book are already legendary when the story begins From there things can only get legendary-er --Tom Angleberger, author of the Origami Yoda series

Lamar Giles has written an instant classic--readers won't want their time with the Legendary Alston Boys of Logan County to end. --Gwenda Bond, author of the Lois Lane series

The Hardy Boys meets The Phantom Tollbooth, in the new century When two adventurous cousins accidentally extend the last day of summer by freezing time, they find the secrets hidden between the unmoving seconds, minutes, and hours are not the endless fun they expected.

Otto and Sheed are the local sleuths in their zany Virginia town, masters of unraveling mischief using their unmatched powers of deduction. And as the summer winds down and the first day of school looms, the boys are craving just a little bit more time for fun, even as they Read More chevron_right

   My son loved it.
The son of my, Jean Gustaf, liked this book. He loves the adventure and keeps him guessing. He enjoyed traveling the time and introducing inventions in the book.
   Great book coice
This is the first book they both liked at the same time. And my grandson found it on his summer reading list at the middle school.
   A wonderful adventure with heart
I could see this quirky adventure as a show on Nickelodeon, which I would have watched as a kid definitely. It was great to go back to this mindset! I loved these characters and was emotionally destroyed in chapter 32. I won 't spoil anything, but I was definitely not ready for chapter 32! And my deductions were nowhere near as good as Otto or even the Epic Ellisons'because I guessed wrong about TimeStar's identity. TimeStar's quest was a noble one and it really grounded all the Logan weird bits of the journey. I am emotionally invested in these characters and can not wait for the next adventure!
   An Adventure Book for All!
We started it pre-COVID, but with soccer and school and weekend activities, we couldn t find time to make it through a few pages. A few weeks ago we returned to it and was an absolute BLAST! My son wanted MORE at the end of each chapter! This is really a timeless book that should become part of the school reading lists. When a children's book has adventure, fantasy, love, life lessons and family and holds the attention of an adult, you know it is good!
   Great read for an 8 year old boy !
It is a fun and unpredictable start, but once you start it, it is a slow story about 2 boys of color. We have 2 chapters left... because we read at bedtime and my son can 't wait to see what happens to Sheed and Otto.
   Such a fun book!
Starts with so much action that it will definitely hook a reluctant reader! Highly recommended for fifth and sixth grade students!
   Such a fun read!
This book is going to love the kids! Time travels, adventure, bizarre creatures - it has it all! Plus, the two main characters are so funny and relatable.
   All kids imagine time stopping.
Though the story started a little slow for me, there was no stopping once it took off! There were twists and turns throughout and I didn 't have the ending developed as expected. On their last day of summer, Otto and Sheed are two African American cousins. Not wanting to end their summer, they head out for one more day of detective work for which they are known throughout the county. This will be the longest day of their lives, little do they know! This is a great read for children who like Scififantasy.
