Quote:

He winked at me, and I tried to wink back, but I could only do it with both eyes at once, which made me look stupid. Another important skill I needed to work on. -- pg. 174

Kalahari

Khoury, Jessica
The Scholastic edition does not suggest that this is book three of a series. Sarah lives in the Kalahari semi-desert with her zoologist-researcher father. Her mother died several months before. A motley group of teens are coming to stay for two week, possibly the beginning of a new source of funding for the research station. Things go badly. "Poachers", a horrific "disease", and a silver lion. Lots of action, I will give it that.
