What’s the basic story line?

Neighborhood bullies Bryce and Trippy challenge Fish Finelli and his friends Roger and T.J. to find Captain Kidd’s lost treasure. In the action-packed adventure that follows, Fish and his pals trespass on an island and meet many interesting people. But do they manage to find the lost treasure? You’ll have to read the book to find out.

Are the characters believable?

The characters are believable because the author describes them as having the types of personalities that real kids have. For example, T.J. is the master of snacks; he always has a spare lollipop or a handful of chips to spare. Fish is an average kid who is determined to get the $54.53 he needs to buy his prized boat motor. Roger is Fish’s best friend and helps Fish in any situation.

On a scale of 1 to 10 (10 being best), how would you rate this book?

I would rate this book an 8. I really like the way the story played out and kept me entertained on each page. I enjoyed how the characters worked together to earn something for a common cause. E.S. Farber is an amazing author and will have you reading nonstop until the end.
