HUBER HILL AND THE DEAD MAN'S TREASURE Review

HUBER HILL AND THE DEAD MAN'S TREASURE by B. K. Bostick

This book took off from scene one. Kids will love its fast-paced action and its believable characters.

Huber Hill is the scrawny guy everybody bullies in middle school. Especially Scott McCormick, who gives him probably the worst nickname ever. (I really hate that name and hate that poor Hubey never seems to shuck it off.) At first we really want Huber to kick ol' Scotty to the curb, but because Huber is a cool kid, they become best friends.

When it comes time to share the secrets Huber's dying grandfather has left him, he shares it all with Scott and his sister, Hannah. The trio go after treasure in the mountains, with the help of an old map, a notebook, and some old-fashioned sleuthing.

Unfortunately they aren't the only ones interested in the money. A creepy Spaniard shadows the three treasure hunters' every move, intent on beating them to the gold in a nail-biting race to the finish. He'll stop at nothing--not theft, not spying, not assault, or even murder to get what he wants. Luckily the kids have powerful forces on their side.

This was a fun, speedy read and fits on the shelves with the likes of Obert Skye's books and The Janitor. I gave this one 4 pizzas.
