Hey, happy summer, my blogger friends! The past few months have been busy, and I wasn’t able to update this space as much as I wanted, but I’m happy to be here with you. Most of all, I’m happy YOU are here. ♥️

About the Book:

Jake Potter is back on Dewees Island for another summer with his beloved grandmother, Honey. This time, Jake is excited that his dad will be there as he continues to recover from his injuries sustained in Afghanistan. But Jake also knows they both need to get used to a new normal, which isn’t easy.

Jake also discovers that his two best friends, Macon and Lovie, are struggling as well. Macon is adjusting to being a big brother, while Lovie is navigating a new relationship with her dad, who has long been absent in her life. To cheer everyone up, Jake decides that the trio needs a new mission, just like they had the previous summer in saving the turtles. He discovers that his dad loved spending time in an old tree fort on the island, and there is a special treasure box hidden somewhere nearby. Jake just knows if he can find it, maybe his dad will be happy again—and he knows Macon and Lovie are the perfect fellow treasure hunters!

Their search leads them to discover there might be actual buried treasure somewhere on Dewees, all while they battle some unwelcome guests on the island, of both the two- and four-legged kind! On the three friends’ biggest quest yet, they realize that the treasures they really want in life were with them all along.

My Thoughts:

Mary Alice Monroe and Angela May revisited this adorable middle grade storyline heading back to the island.

Isn’t this cover adorable? I’ll give you some quick thoughts on this sweet book.

Jake is still adjusting to the changes in his life, and his friends have their own challenges. This summer, he decides they need a new distraction to lift their spirits, and it’s going to be a treasure hunt. Everyone loves a treasure hunt, right?!

Off the go, searching Dewees Island for treasure, and along the way, they discover more about the local wildlife and themselves.

This is another positive and uplifting book for middle graders and their parents. It’s full of heart, friendship, and island adventures.

I received a gifted copy.
