Product: Trouble with Treasure
Company: Kregal Publications
I have always loved to read. When I was younger I pretty much read everything in our school library. I really enjoyed books about horses. Our neighbor had horses and I loved to watch them run in the fields next to our house.
I was introduced to a young girl named Andi in the book called Trouble with Treasure. This is a fiction book published by Kregal Publications. It is part of a series of 4 books about a girl named Andrea Carter written by Susan Marlow.
Here's the description for this book from the website:
When innocent horseplay temporarily lands Andi and her friends in jail, they decide that a trip into the mountains will leave their troubles far behind. Accompanied by big brother Mitch and armed with a map showing old gold diggings, they can't wait to strike it rich. What could be better than two weeks of camping and horseback riding?
But instead of gold they find heaps of trouble -- trouble that leaves Mitch gravely wounded. Andi needs help fast. But who can she trust? And what good is a bag of gold when her beloved brother lies near death in the middle of nowhere?
I enjoyed reading this book where the good guys win in the end. Throughout the book, Andi and her brother have grand adventures and get in to more than their fair share of trouble. The book has very graphic descriptions of things that your young one might find scary. A few of the questionable parts are when Mitch is wounded, there is a gun shot wound, and a girl gets knocked down and hits her head. These are just a few of these I think make this book this more appropriate for teens.
This is a western so of course there are gun references; so if that is something you don’t agree with, this probably isn’t the book for your family. I liked the book because it is wholesome with no cursing. This is a very exciting book with lots of adventure. I had no trouble finishing this quickly even though it is written for teens.
