There are two parallel lines of plot going on here, too. In middle-school, she has to deal with some bullying and a boy-crush. (The mean girl is a real piece o' work, haha, I mean nicely portrayed villain.) Oh, and everyone's reaching menarche, so that comes up, too. It's rather fun to see the interaction between Alexa and Skylar; how they're sometimes "girly" and sometimes mature, both smart, and their personalities complement one another.
I like the writing style. It's quite clear, easy to follow, and it stays mature and accessible to all levels of reader, even though the book is obviously geared toward a middle-grade female demographic and their fantasies. It contains some moral lessons as the protagonist navigates various problems, but it doesn't get preachy about anything.
Oh, and... It ends in a good place as one might expect. But I can see there's going to be another adventure in Skylar's near future.
This story was fun to read, bringing back memories of Jr. High and young teen angst, arguments with mom over clothes and makeup and most importantly, sneaking around searching for the treasure.
