Description

Ages 10 years & over. This is a captivating book of adventure about a teenage boy who has been sent to stay with his grandmother in the country for the summer because his parents are splitting up. At first Pete thinks country life will be boring, far from his computer and friends in the city. But that's before he hears of a hidden stash of gold, starts to make some great new friends, and ultimately discovers a new sense of maturity and self-confidence. In this adventurous but sensitive story, Luanne Armstrong draws us into a world of discovery, fun, friendship and family.
