Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - GOODPOSTER - JBJ REPORTER

THE long sum­mer hol­i­days are com­ing up. Here are great reads you can win to keep you en­ter­tained. Khatchado­rian to head off to her first day at Hills Vil­lage Mid­dle School, where she ex­pects to ex­cel in all the places her trou­ble­mak­ing brother didn’t. But Rafe left a pretty big mark at the school, and ev­ery­one she meets im­me­di­ately brands Ge­orgina a prob­lem child just like Rafe. On top of that she has to deal with snooty kids she calls “The Princess Pa­trol” and a miniMiller (the-not-so-lit­tle-brother of Miller-the-killer) and a screechy mouth-breather who des­per­ately wants to be her best friend.

Will she ever over­come her fears and stand up to the Princess Pa­trol? Will Rafe stop be­ing so an­noy­ing? Trea­sure Hunters By James Pat­ter­son and Chris Graben­stein

The Kidd sib­lings have grown up div­ing down to ship­wrecks and trav­el­ling the world, help­ing their fa­mous par­ents re­cover ev­ery­thing from swords to gold dou­bloons ( coins) from the bot­tom of the ocean. But af­ter their par­ents dis­ap­pear on the job, the kids are sud­denly thrust into the big­gest trea­sure hunt of their lives. They’ll have to work to­gether to de­feat dan­ger­ous pi­rates and dodge the hot pur­suit of an evil trea­sure hunt­ing ri­val, all while fol­low­ing cryptic clues to un­ravel the mys­tery of what re­ally hap­pened to their par­ents – and find out if they’re still alive. The Lost Prophe­cies By Michael Malaghan

When they’re kid­napped by an an­cient sect they re­alise they’re in way over their heads, but there’s no turn­ing back. And so the two race to un­ravel an an­cient plot and fol­low a maze of lethal clues in search of lifechang­ing se­crets… WIN!WIN! WIN! You can win all three books.
