The Guardians of the Hidden Scepter: A book review

From the publisher:

When Amber's favorite teacher goes missing she and her fellow archaeology classmates are plunged into arace against destruction to track down clues and find Ms. H. Buteverything erupts when they unearth an ancient artifact so powerful it could mean global disaster-if they fail to protect it. The struggle to escape and return the scepter to its original protectors will demand all their own secret strengths.

What I thought:  

The Guardians of the Hidden Scepter by Frank Cole is a modern Indiana Jones type book.  The main characters are 14 years old and in a cool private school.  Amber loves her archaeology class and her teacher, Mrs. Holcomb - herein lies the problem.  Mrs. Holcomb (prefers to be called Dorothy) goes missing and it is up to Amber and her friends to find the clues to bring her home safely.

A fun read that didn't disappoint.  Most concepts in this book will be well handled and understood by the younger crowd.  My kidlets will be in 4th and 5th grades this year and I believe they'd handle this book well and enjoy it too!  (I'm sure if it was made into a movie too, no one in my house would complain!)

Note:  I received a free galley copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review, which I am pleased to present to you here.  I received no monetary compensation for this review.  KW
