Treasure Tracks is a fun novel about a boy’s search for lost treasure. It takes place in the Florida Keys, where numerous shipwrecks can be found. This treasure, however, is not to be found in a shipwreck.
The main character, Fin, has started searching for a treasure with his grandfather. His grandfather tells him the stories of the treasure, and the two go out diving for it. When one trip leaves his grampa in the hospital, Fin must carry out the search without him. He won’t be alone, however, as his boring, overprotective dad will come too. The pair will face numerous dangers in an effort to find the treasure, the only thing Fin believes will save his grandfather.
This was a very fun read, filled with unexpected twists and a lot of excitement. The characters were all quite interesting, and there was more to each than meets the eye. It was really interesting to learn about diving while reading this, and I enjoyed all of the underwater scenes. I would recommend this book to kids from fifth grade to eighth grade, especially if they like adventure novels.
