So when he stumbles upon a treasure map connected to an old family secret, Bryce is determined to follow the clues to unearth both, even if it means hiking in the wilderness in the middle of nowhere.

From Reidhead Randomness:
This was quite a unique book.  I am still not sure where to classify it.  I liked it...but it isn't what I expected.  The first half of the book goes as expected with an epic adventure, but then it takes a turn right in the middle.  It wasn't expected, and I am still not sure if I liked it.  The book resolves everything at the end, but I am still trying to figure out the audience it was written for.  Usually I can quickly decide who to recommend a book to as soon as I'm done....but this one has given me a run for my money.  I think tweens and early teens would like the first half.  This book was an easy and quick read for me (just a couple hours).  It has adventure, but also has some family drama and relationships.  ONE more you read, watch the chapter numbers, because the point of view of the story changes from chapter to chapter, so you actually need to pay attention to who you are listening to.  I was a little confused when I started chapter 2 because it changed point of view, and I didn't notice the names at the top of the chapter.  It's a good book, but I was caught off guard by the last half of the book.
