Editorial Reviews

Review

With a captivating lead-in akin to a Cussler novel, Clements punctuates school days with mystery, intrigue and adventure. Set in historic St. Augustine, Florida, "Gasparilla's Treasure" has wit and charm to please any reader.

Format: Paperback
A book worth reading!, March 9, 2012
By Bernie
This review is from: Gasparilla's Treasure
Dedicated to all who see life as an adventure, Scott Clements has created an interesting, well thought out, adventure book for the young at heart. Life is seen through the eyes of a teenage boy and his friends as they search for the long lost Gasparilla's Treasure by uncovering and following clues through historic St. Augustine, Florida. The tale is both entertaining and touching as the three friends lead the reader down a path to surprises. As the book draws to a close, Clements has left us wanting more and in the end, he has left clues for their next great adventure. The book is filled with history, suspense and humor while grounded in a world of Middle School drama with Sarah, his first love, Josh, his computer geek best friend and Eli, a bully who constantly tries to undermine the hero. A book worth reading!

Scott Clements has done a fantastic job creating a modern day mystery rich with history. He has captured the trials and thrills of being a 13 year old in todays society. I was so excited to get my hands on this book; I certainly was not let down. The day I received the book I started reading it and did not put it down until I finished. I can't wait to see what Trip Montgomery's next adventures have in
store.

I read this book to my 12-yr. old daughter and 15-yr. old son at the beginning of the summer. It was a fun, easily readable story that zipped along - perfect for summer, and perfect for sharing as a family. I liked hearing my kids laugh out loud at the character of Josh, who was always saying or doing something funny, or hearing them gasp "Oh, no" when sensing that persistent, intrepid Trip was about to be caught doing something he shouldn't. The storyline with the bully Eli was a bit over-the-top, my kids thought - but I have to say that it provided some of the "uh-oh" moments that I mentioned, and one hilarious scene involving Eli, Josh and a fork. Trip's affection and concern for his grandfather is touching, and the sweet but awkward romantic feelings between Trip and Sara made my kids both smile and squirm with a bit of embarrassment. I think they put themselves in Trip's shoes as we read, and it's always good thing to identify with the main character.

We recently talked about what they enjoyed about the book. Here is what my kids had to say about GASPARILLA'S TREASURE:

* It's funny
* It's like NATIONAL TREASURE with kids as the characters
* Trip is the adventurous one, Sarah is smart, and Josh adds humor
* It incorporates the history of St. Augustine
* Recommend for 4th grade - 8th grade

I would think that a more reluctant reader would be pulled in to the story of GASPARILLA'S TREASURE, because Scott Clements has a knack for spinning a fun story with engaging characters.

This is a book I read to preview for my children! It is along the lines of 'National Treasure' in the sense it is a treasure hunt. However this book is set in Florida and the main characters are kids.

I think it's an encouraging tale about a kid who is a little different, but has the self awareness to appreciate who he is! He has a GREAT sense of humor and a great best friend!

It is totally appropriate for any age, there are is nothing that could make anyone worry, this is the perfect book for a young adult!

First off I've had this book sitting on my Kindle for a while (since March) and I finally read it! I actually have the audible version too and that's what we listened to (we did get this for free from Goodreads!) I say we because I listened to this with my son he's never really heard an audio book but this is the kind of book that holds his interest. Yes, he's a little young for the demographic of 'middle grade' but he's reading that book group anyway. He really enjoyed it, he wanted to find out what's happening next and the book wasn't too long so it held his interest. The narrator did a fantastic job in his reading and his voices for the different characters. This book will also hold the interest of adults, it's not silly like some kids books, and it really does feel like a "National Treasure" for kids. It's a big treasure hunt and these kids follow clue after clue to find the mysterious treasure that Trip's family has been after for several generations. There are obstacles a long the way and it's all one grand adventure. This book is definitely worth a read, and we will more than likely read it again.
