My daughter and I enjoy reading together but more often than not due to our different interests, it’s hard to find a good book that we could both enjoy.
A book filled with adventure and suspense, interesting characters, and a story that captivates everyone regardless of age. Luckily we found it and can’t wait any longer to tell everyone about it!
We were recently lucky enough to get our hands on a copy of the new Delia Ray book, Finding Fortune. Keep in mind that I received a copy in exchange for my honest thoughts.
This book has it all, adventure, mystery, suspense, lots of interesting characters, and a story that will captivate readers young and old.
Following the adventures of Ren, the main character, and her relatable misfortunes throughout a time in her life when she could use a little adventure.
She meets a lot of friends along the way that is almost as interesting as the main story itself.
She heads to a small town with a crooked sign reading population
128 38 12 and though nobody she knows has even seen a single person in the town, she likes to pass through on her bike rides.
After dealing with the divorce in her parent’s future, which seems more likely every day, Ren can’t wait to get away. When she sees a flyer that asks the intriguing question, “Wanna get away from it all?”
She decided that she did and wouldn’t come back until her mom’s new love interest was out of her life for good.
And that is just the beginning……
After heading to Fortune, Ren finds herself at an old school filled with a mix match of personalities that have been known to rent rooms for cheap.
This is where the real adventure begins!
It seems the old school is filled with more than just a lot of old rooms and quirky characters but there is a real mystery to be solved concerning an actual fortune that may help save the town.
My daughter and I enjoyed reading this book together but it was so good, I caught her trying to read ahead a few times and she may have caught me doing the same once or twice.
I think everyone will enjoy this fun adventure that the whole family can go on together.
