    9. Gasparilla s Treasure is a worthy adventure read for middle graders I ll try to offer some useful comments without letting out any spoilers.The three central characters are your typical kids The main character, Trip, provides the link to the background story that leads to the adventure Josh is his goofy friend, and Sarah is a newbie to their school.As the story develops, so too does the friendship between the three characters There is a common enemy, Eli the bully, and the three need to work tog [...]

    10. I picked this ebook up for free during Scott s promotion About halfway through I felt like I was watching National Treasure, except being played out with tweens The historical references, the treasure hunting, the clues if you enjoyed that movie, you likely won t be disappointed by this book.I found the writing style to be on the understated side, which I prefer Mr Clements is not repetitious, nor does he rely on cramming in words trying to set a scene or describe an action The story pace is li [...]

    11. I am 40 years old and I loved reading this book I enjoyed following the kids on their adventure I thought it was well written, the pacing was good it moved along and I was never wondering when do we move on That happens to me in some books The characters were likable and a nice group effort was made, everyone had something to contribute.I learned a lot about St Augustine, Florida and now hope to visit someday.I used to read the Trixie Belden Mysteries as a child and this reminded me of those adv [...]

    12. Well, I liked the chapters of this book that didn t have as much of the school bully threatening and trying to beat up Trip and of the quest Trip and his two friends were on About part way through I got kinda tired of the school bullies and Trips yelling Mom However, Eli the school bully did play a part in Trip and his friends being able to find Gasparilla s Treasure in that Eli had followed them with the Gasparilla book he stole from them and Trip was able to get it back so they could complete [...]

    13. We did get this for free from the first reads program I say we because I listened to this with my son he s never really heard an audio book before 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 [...]

    14. Gasparilla s Treasure is set in St Augustine, Florida and follows Francis please call him Trip Montgomery on a classic buried treasure adventure Except Trip is not your usual 13 year old boy he discovers after visiting his great grandfather in the nursing home that he comes from a long line of treasure hunters Together with his video gaming best friend, Josh, and strikingly pretty new girl, Sarah, he sets of to find the lost treasure of fabled pirate Gasparilla.This was a quick, fun read especia [...]

    15. This was a nice quick read as the story flows well and is entertaining I almost gave the book a 3 because of the villain Eli, is this middle school or the Sopranos as Eli was a bit over the top But I really enjoyed the book and hope there is another adventure.

    16. This is a young adult read Actually maybe a teen read.I was originally interested because of the title Gasparilla s Treasure Ie Jose Gaspar I lived in Tampa,Florida most of my life and every year we have a Gasparilla festival I enjoyed the book very much.

    17.

[...]

    18. I don t believe I was the right audience for this, which confused me since I got it at a horror convention Skipping the fact that it s middle grade I like the history of everything, though it felt rushed, forced in some spots, and unbelievable in others It definitely needs to be through another round of edits, at least since 2012 since that s when I got my paperback copy There were a multitude of typos It is a very clever story and a fun little treasure hunt, also a nice opening for future books [...]

    19. A treasure of a story for the young and mature as wellI choose this rating because I think it appeals to all Nicely written, exciting, keeps your interest and teaches lessons and love and compassion.
