Huber Hill and the Dead Man's Treasure

Huber Hill is really hating his life in junior high. Each day he goes to school and is mocked, beaten, made fun of, and embarrassed by Scott McCormick, and Scott never gets in trouble for the things he does to Huber. But that all changes one day when Scott goes too far. He starts out just making fun of Huber, calling him the nickname that Scott made up for him Puber, and just plain being mean, but when Huber's twin sister Hannah tries to get Scott to stop and gets hurt, Huber knows that Scott has pushed things too far and Huber decides to fight back instead of just taking the constant bullying any more. When a scary man comes to the Hill's home looking for the treasure map that Huber's Grandpa Nick left to him when he died, Huber knows he has to go after the treasure - before the scary man goes and finds it, so he sneaks away bringing Hannah and Scott and the three have the most dangerous adventure of their young lives! 

This was such a great book! I loved the adventure, action and even touch of romance that was in this one. It's written for younger readers, probably around ages 10-15, but the story is engaging enough for adults too. I like the way there are puzzles that make you think in the books, it's almost as though you are figuring things out along with Huber, Scott and Hannah, it keeps you vested in the story. I couldn't put it down and am really excited to read the second one.
