When I was a little girl, I remember watching this movie about a bunch of kids who were trying to save their home town and goes off to look for the lost treasure of One-Eyed Willy. Since then, I've always considered myself a Goonie and continued to look for other stories like it and finding great titles such as; National Treasure, Pirates of the Caribbean and even Indiana Jones. I've always enjoyed a good archaeologist or treasure hunting story, but yet to have found any in books for my preferre ...more

This was a fun adventure story with engaging characters, even if it was hard to take them seriously as, well, people. I liked Annie and Josh, our main characters, quite a bit. Annie is that mixture of competent and uncertain that pretty much defines a fifteen year-old girl. Her mom owns a diving shop, where Annie helps out with both the retail store aspects and the scuba instruction. Child labor laws aside, this aspect of the story just works and gives Annie focus. Her dad is a history teacher a ...more

My Thoughts:

This is coming from Disney Hyperion July 9th - complete with a waterproof cover! - and I was given this copy for review via I am a huge fan of films like 'Pirates of the Caribbean' and 'National Treasure', so the idea of a YA book along these lines captured my imagination.

“It turns out that sunken treasure and an unrequited crush have a lot in common, starting with that fact that it makes no real sense to chase either of them.”

The story is narrated by Annie Fleet, a sc
ARC was provided by the author/publisher via NetGalley in exchange for honest review.

I think this is a really nice adventure young adult (YA) story, though in some part I felt like what happened with the treasure hunting was way simpler and easier than it could be. I spent most of my YA life reading adventure stories and remember that I always wanted to be part of it, this book brings those memories.

I know nothing about scuba diving or places that take place in this story. But the way the autho

This is the perfect beach read!!! Full of adventure and also some cute romance. Oh and this needs to be made a movie! ;-)

Oh and please I want another story with Annie!
Yay! That was such a fun sweet read. Nothing beats a great treasure hunt adventure with a hot guy. Right? I think we all at some point in our youth have dreamed of going on a grand treasure hunt whether by land or sea. Having that youthful energy and excitement that we are invincible and we will be successful. I don't know about you but other than my make believe treasure hunt in my backyard of pretty rocks of petrified gold were my spectacular treasure. I think those feelings are what make this ...more

This book is slow to get into, but yet the plot is very good. It's nice to have a romantic treasure hunt written by a guy. I recommend it very much.

Annie Fleet doesn't fit in as well as she'd like at the exclusive private school she attends. She's on scholarship because her dad teaches there. He gave her his love of history and of lost treasure ships, but lost his own enthusiasm along the way. Her mom runs a barely breaking-even dive shop. Scuba diving is Annie's other passion. Most of the teens attending the school have rich and famous parents like Josh, the son of a famous movie star that she's crushing on. There's no way on earth, she'll ...more

The author won my heart at "primary sources." This is a book for the treasure hunting history lover. It was a little heavy on the awkward teen love story side when it could have been just as focused on the treasure hunting side and survived, but the narrator is also a 15-year-old girl going treasure hunting with her crush. So, I guess I should have expected that.

I liked how believable the made up part of it was and how well the author tied in the history.

I was surprised by this book, but I really enjoyed it. It was exciting, which is apparently what I was looking for at the time.

Annie wants to be a treasure hunter. She’s very interested in lost treasure, in ships disappearing and nothing ever found, even if she’s never seriously thought about doing it before. When she goes on a school trip and instead is pushed to help find a hidden statue, she gives in. And finds it to be a much more exciting endeavor t

"In Too Deep" by Coert Voorhees was a book I was very excited to read. Annie, the main character, is an intelligent teen girl who is not only a skilled scuba diver, but also a history enthusiast. Unlike other teen novels where the female character is whiny or flighty, Annie is smart and strong, and though she's a typical teen, she doesn't tolerate the fools surrounding her. She is her own person. And while Annie's two interests seem disjointed, they actually prove pretty handy for the adventure ...more

I received this book from Netgalley to review.

I adored this book and read it one sitting. Like started it at 11:00 at night and stayed up until 2AM reading even though my Kindle's power died and I had to go padding around looking for the cord. That isn't to say it didn't have faults, but it was so much fun that I had to keep going. The book reminded me a lot of Heist Society by Ally Carter.

Annie was a great protagonist. She was level headed and smart. Her extensive knowledge of diving and how pr

Duuuude! Come on, treasure hunting!

I just couldn’t resist the mystery and adventure that this book promised, and it definitely delivered!

This would be the perfect beach read, where you could imagine that you really are on an exotic beach looking for long lost treasure. I really enjoy treasure hunting stories, but I often see them more in movies than in YA novels, so this book was a p

I can’t say that I have ever read a book, young adult or not, about diving and long-lost treasure. I requested this one from NetGalley because it sounded so different but also fun and quite summery at the same time.

To start with, I absolutely loved Annie. She’s comfortable with herself, knows what she likes and isn’t afraid to show that. Going to a private school with kids with a lot of money could have meant a lot of bullying and teasing for Annie but luckily, her friends accept that she has d
One aspect I enjoyed about this book was the information about deep sea diving. The descriptions felt realistic. I never questioned the author’s expertise. I was even interested in learning MORE about how much time and effort it took to get certified and the dangers of deep sea diving. The author did a good job of incorporating the information without overloading readers. But unfortunately, that part of the novel was one of the few things I liked. I didn’t like how the characters interacted with ...more

Annie is a girl after my own heart with her love of archaeology and treasure hunting. Where I like to look at nature from a distance, she will actually get out into the field and get her hands dirty or wet in this case.

When Annie's teacher presents her with the opportunity to go to Mexico to perform some charity work and may be find a little treasure on the side, she jumps at the chance. Once she arrives there, she finds out the true mission of the trip and agrees to go along with it. It's

In Too Deep was fun, action, treasure hunting and dangerous. Just enjoyed it. Makes me want to go diving. It is a clean read on top of it.

To see my full review:

The beginning of this novel was a bit slow for me. Voorhees spends much time setting up the scene and the characters, so there isn’t much action until about 35% into the novel, when the treasure hunting actually begins. From here, it’s a whirlwind of stop and go action as Annie and Josh embark on a mission to find Cortez’s treasure before those out to kill her succeed. I’m not interested in the specifics of diving, so the details expl

High school freshman Annie Fleet has several great passions: scuba diving, the mysteries of the ocean, and a crush on her schoolmate, Josh Rebstock. She finally gets a chance to get his attention when the two of them head to Mexico as part of a school field trip, a combination humanitarian and treasure hunting expedition. With her diving expertise, she’s perfect for teaching Josh how not to drown in new and embarrassing ways.

Only the “Good Deeds and Golden Doubloons” trip isn’t what it appears.

My Thoughts: I thought I was going to love this one. It sounded like something I would deeply enjoy. I did enjoy it to an extent but not as much as I had hoped.

We are introduced to Annie who is a high schooler and scuba diver. She gets assigned a project on the Golden Jaguar and does pretty good on it. She’s interested in it and wants to know more about it. She also has a crush on a boy named Josh. He’s cute and his mom is a movie star so he’s pretty well known.

If the movies "Sahara" and "Fool's Gold" were to have a lovechild, this book would be it. While this should excite me, having thoroughly enjoyed both movies, I couldn't help but wish that this book was more. I thought that this book looked a bit too much like it's mother and father than I would have liked, not having any quirky or unique features- features that were truly it's own, that neither one of its parents could lay claim to.

I wasn't expecting to enjoy this book as much as I did. Sure enough, I picked it up and hardly put it down until I was finished (basically one day lol). It was such a quick read and easy read filled with action, danger, a bit of romance and of course treasure hunting! That's what made pulled me in initially. I was hoping it would be exciting and fun. I wasn't disappointed.

There was so much funny in this book, which did surprise me.

This book, overall, is just plain cute. Even when they’re hunting treasure like Indiana Jones and bad guys are there threatening them, the writing and characters and tone is simply sweet. Annie, with her love of diving and history, is adorkable, and as a fellow nerd, pretty relatable as well. She has an innocent, cute little relationship with an older boy, Josh, who is the child of a famous actress. I thought that once they got back from the Mexico trip and actually started talking to each other ...more

Oh how excited I was to read this book. I wanted nothing more than to get my hands on it. Why? Do you know how impossible it is to find a YA book with those good old cliches? Well, it's hard. Like searching goodreads for 4 hours and coming up with 7 books hard. So I was ecstatic when I saw this book.

I don't read a lot of teen books, but I just had finished another treasure hunting adventure book when I saw this one pop up on Netgalley and decided to give it a try.

Annie Fleet is a freshman at the exclusive Pinedale Academy, the school for child stars and children of celebrities. She crushes on the gorgeous Josh Rebstock, a junior and the son of a beautiful actress, but figures she is way out of his league as she only gained entrance to the school as the daughter of a professor there.

When I first spotted this book at the Disney Hyperion booth at ALA Midwinter, I thought it looked interesting.
