Huber Hill and the Dead Man's Treasure

by B.K. Bostick
Rated PG

14-year-old Huber Hill is cursed with a weird name and a talent for attracting bullies, which is why he spends a lot of time at his grandfather's house, listening to stories of a hidden treasure in the nearby mountains.

But when his grandfather dies and leaves him an actual map to the treasure, Huber finds himself embarking on a dangerous journey with his twin sister, and Scott McCormick - the very bully who's been tormenting Huber since the 5th grade.

With a vile criminal on their tail, the three teenagers desperately scramble to find the treasure before anyone else does. But if they do, will they have the courage to do what Huber's grandfather did decades before them?

This book is an entertaining mystery, one of a series of two (the second book is Huber Hill and the Brotherhood of Coronado). Thankfully, Bostick brings book one to a satisfying conclusion before whetting your appetite for book two, which I always appreciate.

Huber Hill is a clean read, rated PG for some violence and suspense.
