Book Review - Guardians of the Tebah Stick by Frank Cole
The first line in the book . . .
Two flashlight beams cut through the darkness of the museum, leaving me no choice but to drop down below the stone sarcophagus.
After reading that line, who wouldn't want to read more of this book? I love a good mystery especially one that has plenty of twists and turns and keeps me guessing. That's exactly what Frank Cole's new novel, Guardians of the Tebah Stick does. This is a story full of fun and adventure. It's about four teens who go above and beyond the call of duty to help a teacher they love.
The "Scooby-gang" for this who-done-it are: Amber, Trendon, Joseph, and Lisa. But the main character is Amber Rawson. What I liked about her was she's just a normal teen who suddenly finds herself in a situation where she can help someone. Does she have the courage and determination to see this through even though she's scared out of her wits, dodging bad guys, and dragging a the reluctant Trendon around with her? Amber can't ignore the feeling that she can make a difference and find her teacher. Amber is a hero who rises to the challenge. Be forewarned--someone in the gang turns out to be a traitor. (Nope, I'm not going to tell you who. You need to read the book.)
Here's the back cover blurb:
When Amber's favorite teacher, Dorothy Holcomb, goes missing it's up to Amber and her archaeology classmates to rescue their teacher and recover the ancient artifact Dorothy's trying to protect. But with codes to crack, clues to follow, and more danger at every turn, this mission may be more than four teenagers can handle--not to mention the fact that they're being chased by an evil organization that will stop at nothing to claim the Tebah stick for itself.
Guardians of the Tebah Stick is a fun read that teens will enjoy. I know I did.
(I was given a copy of this book, but I reviewed it because I liked it.)
