Eric and Chris are avid geocachers who stumble into a very strange search for a series of geocaches. At first they are merely curious, but as the stakes rise and the challenges become more trying, the boys get truly hooked. Convinced they are indeed on the trail of treasure, they become consumed with the search, and though their quest tests their strength, intelligence, courage and even their friendship, they don't give up.
Resource Links - April 1, 2014
"This adrenalin-induced strive will be well recognized by most teen readers—especially boys...The end result only solidifies the feeling of reward the readers will share with Eric and Chris, who have together succeeded where either alone would likely have failed."
The Horn Book - October 1, 2013
"Budding Dan Brown fans will enjoy the ride of this fast-paced, plot-driven narrative."
Library Media Connection - August 1, 2013
"Dangerous tasks, tests trying their stamina, and more and more difficult clues keep readers guessing and the boys questioning what makes this cache unique and exactly what will be the end result. Despite all these obstacles the boys see the cache search to its surprising conclusion. This title is suggested for young men, especially reluctant readers."
CM Magazine - February 8, 2013
"The novel very convincingly captures an adolescent perspective and the nuances of friendship at this age...The topic of geocaching is an excellent plot device for a contemporary quest or search for clues and will likely lead more than a few readers to investigate geocaching in their own neighborhoods. Readers will also appreciate the twist in the plot at the end as the boys come face to face with a rival before their adventure reaches a satisfying conclusion."
