What's Finders Keepers About

Publisher Summary

From the author of The Graham Cracker Plot, a story about two friends playing finders keepers for the missing loot of Al Capone. Christa spends every summer at the most awesome place in the whole world: her family’s cabin on Whitefish Lake, Wisconsin. Only her dad recently lost his job and her parents have decided to sell the cabin. But not if Christa can help it. Everyone knows there is Al Capone blood money hidden somewhere in Whitefish Lake, and her friend Alex’s cranky grandpa might have the key to finding it. Grumpa says the loot is gone, or worse—cursed!—but Christa knows better. That loot is the only thing that can save her family. Finders Keepers by Shelley Tougas is a brilliant story full of heart about family, love, and the treasure hunt of a lifetime, from the author of The Graham Cracker Plot and A Patron Saint for Junior Bridesmaids. “A charming story of family history and personal connections (both lost and found) that is reminiscent of Blue Balliett and the Penderwicks’ adventures.” —Booklist, starred review “The fast-paced ending has enough bite to satisfy. The premise will cause inevitable comparisons to Gennifer Choldenko’s Alcatraz tales, but the story stands on its own. Entertaining and humorous; good light fare for middle graders.” —Kirkus Reviews
