The Lost Treasure of Tuckernuck

Emily Fairlie

Sixth-graders Laurie and Bud enter a contest to solve a mystery at their historic school before the building is torn down. They plan to win the promised reward and then move on to a new junior high school. As they chase an escaped gerbil they discover the first clue in this 80-year-old challenge. Laurie provides asides such as “How to Elude a Persistent and Overeager English Teacher” and additional lists with advice on surviving middle school. High-spirited and amusing. Ages 8-11
