The Lost Treasure of Tuckernuck by Emily Fairlie

I won a copy through the Goodreads' Firstreads program!

Quite often I have picked up a 'children' or 'young adult' book, just to be sorely disappointed with what options youth have to read. This book is far from that disappointment.
The idea is simple: There is a treasure somewhere in school. Since the founder's days, students have been on the hunt. Now, two sixth-graders have found the first clue.

Lost Treasure follows Bud and Laurie through misadventures, awkward moments, and hilarity. Notes and emails are used in such a way that adds life to the story. It's also fun to follow clue-solving sleuths!
I would definitely recommend this book to my youth students.
