I enjoyed this short book. The book captures a phase of youth that I remember growing up with. Kids are meant to be outside playing with good friends and making adventures that last a life time. Anything is possible for a kid so every adventure is magical. Proves real life can be a good as any fantasy.
I received this book from the author who was a temporary neighbor of ours for a few months while we were staying at a North Carolina campground. I'm sending it to my granddaughter. I think she will

I won this book from Goodreads "First Read."
I really enjoyed this book although it was not at all what I expected. It begins as twelve year olds Luke, RaeNell, and Farley are searching for Civil War treasure.

I'm from a small town myself, but I didn't seem to identify at all with Luke's dilema.
The plot, however, gets more intriguing as t

Back in the summer of 1965 Mike read two books back-to-back that would change his life. The first was Diamonds Are Forever, and the second was Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.
One, a hard-hitting, woman-loving story in the James Bond Series. The other, a whimsical story about a car that flies, floats and even thinks. Both were written by the late Ian Fleming.
Mike determined right then that if someone could
