I am thanking Justin Scott Parr for not only creating another one of the coolest black nerd girls in YA (a girl whom I see myself in), but for giving her braces, natural hair that she's proud of (and which is shown on the cover) and most importantly, highlighting the importance of strong friendships between girls.

Oh, I would love to read this. :)
I really loved this book! I am always looking for a good book for my nine year old daughter who loves to read, and this is definitely one that she would love.

They are determined to figure out the clues to find this treasure even if they might seem too difficult at first. Of course, there is someone else who would prefer to find it first!
