With Samantha’s little brother Joshua along, the girls didn’t think they’d get to go on an adventure this summer but they could not have been more wrong. Josh has been taken and it’s up to them to find the treasure and bring him home. With help from a new friend, they follow secret caves and tunnels and even discover the city of gold, but they learn that is not the greatest treasure of all.
Valerie and Samantha were looking forward to a day at the Science Museum in St Paul. What they didn’t expect were the gnomes, Marcus and Michael, to show up again and send them on a wild scavenger hunt through time. Retrieving the items was one thing; what their choice was to do with them at the end of the hunt was another altogether.
When Valerie and Samantha went to the mall with their mothers, they didn’t expect for another journey to begin while they visited the bookstore. Their surroundings became that of a ship before they knew what was happening. What could have been an overboard disaster turned rescue and proved to be another adventure in itself. Even more surprising was where they were delivered next and discovered that an underwater lost city needed locating. Little did they know that simple pendants they wore held the ancient secret.
