The Silver Lining by Amanda Spottiswoode (176)

This is a GREAT junior novel for kids 8 to 13.  I loved the story line and it was really an engaging story. I am glad that I picked it up at my local library.

It’s been two years since Sophie, Molly, Mark, Harriet, Leticia, and Posy made headlines when they uncovered Brother XII’s hidden treasure. Since then, life has been pretty uneventful for the intrepid crew, who feel more at home on the rolling deck of a sailboat than in their stuffy boarding school.

Once again, Captain Gunn comes to the rescue when he invites the gang to trade in their pirate caps for cowboy hats and head to Interior BC for a cattle drive. But when they run into a familiar villain, the trip takes an ominous turn, including a dangerous missing to an old mine. Will their adventurous ways get the better of them, or will fortune smile upon the kids again?

This was a great read! I look forward to reading more by this author in time.
