Title: Book Scavenger

Author: Jennifer Chamliss Bertman

Target: Grade 3-7

Series: This is the first book in a planned series

What this book is about: 
When Emily’s transient family moves to San Francisco, she has to change schools and make new friends.  But she has her books and the Book Scavenger treasure hunt game to keep her company no matter where she lives.  When she accidentally finds a book that appears to be related to the game, but no one has knowledge of it, it turns out she has found the new treasure hunt developed by Book Scavenger’s creator. It just may be the clue to the person who has put him unconscious in the hospital and now Emily is racing against time to solve the clues.

Why I love this book: 
Well this book was just fun with a capital F!  I can tell you that after reading the book I just so wanted the Book Scavenger game to be real - and your kids will too!  There is nothing like a treasure hunt with ciphers to get the excitement going and this book has it all - mental puzzles along with good old fashioned bad guy chases to keep everyone entertained.

Of course the fact that the book was set in San Francisco, where I grew up, was just icing on the cake.  I loved reading about all the places I grew up going to, and if you have been to the city or are planning a trip, your kids will certainly enjoy this primer.  This story also has several references to other books, so avid readers will enjoy being in the know, but if your reader is not as well versed, no worries.  They will still love the book and be inspired to read more.

Who this book is for: 
Great for kids who enjoyed books like The Gollywhopper Games, or Escape from Mr. Lemoncello’s Library.  But this is also a wonderful book for kids who like games and adventure!

Final thoughts: 
This book was one of those wonderful finds after having had a drought of good stories.  Got me excited about summer reading again - and it just may do that for your kids as well.
