Themes: codes, maps and trust
* NOTE: This book is set sometime in the future*
Plot: Zander, Kit and M.K. are the children of the great Explorer Alexander West. When Kit is given a book by a rogue Explorer, it takes them to Arizona to find Dan Foley's gold with the government on their tail. Will they find the gold? Read this first book in the series to find out.
Language: they take God's name in vain and the D word reoccurs a dozen times in the book.
Negative: Dramleaf ( which is some sort of addictive painkiller), stealing and lying
What I Think: This is a great book that kinda has 'kid Indiana Jones' running around. I think that the book was made for tweens (ages 10-13), but it can definitely be for older kids. Although, it was slightly confusing being set in the future because they talked about non-existent things. Over all, great book.
