Book #59 for #ReadMyOwnDamnBooks.
This book was one of the books sent to me from Beverly from the Books n’ BLoggers swap. This is a middle grade book that is similar in feel to The Westing Game by Ellen Raskin. It is a quick read and entertaining.
It is about a young boy who participates in a scavenger hunt that was set up for heirs of an estate. If the heir solved all seven clues, they would receive the fortune. Young Kameron does not speak in front of adults in public places, so he enlists the help of his friends so that he can save his school from closing. They travel through the churches of Chicago looking for the answers to these riddles.
There is some religious elements in this book but I wanted a bit more background story about Kam and why he doesn’t speak. I guess if I were a middle grader reading this book, I wouldn’t even notice that there is no back story for Kam.
For what this book is, I give it 4 crowns.
