Brynwickville is a unique place on a normal day. Toss in an earthquake and Pirate Treasure Day and you've got a humdinger of a day! Six teens determined to win the prize find more than they imagined when the take a shortcut at the 3 Doors Bookstore.
The story has wonderful twists and turns, so it is hard to predict what will happen next.
The pace can get bogged down by the level of descriptive detail and periodic typos/grammar issues.
This was a fun book. I would recommend it to other kids.
The writing offers great visuals, lending to the adventure. The children take on the personalities of other characters, so the dialogue can become confusing at times when the narrative uses both names.
This is a fantasy adventure book for teens.
Although primarily a fantasy, there are learning opportunities to be found in the discussion about 19th century, archaeology (and lost civilizations), and the value of teamwork.
