Description


Originally published as Secret of the Three Treasures.

If there’s lost treasure to be found, she’s the one to find it. Tiernay West, Professional Adventurer—at your service.

Moving with the stealth of a great cat of the African plains, Tiernay West can track a bicycle over dry pavement and infiltrate secret organizations far beyond bedtime. She has little use for playing by the rules, doing as she's told, or spending time with her mother’s dull new boyfriend and his computer-obsessed son.

Tiernay may be months away from (elementary school) graduation, but she already knows what she wants out of life: to become a professional adventurer, just like the heroine of her father’s best-selling novels. She isn’t scared of anything, and when she catches wind of possible buried treasure in her own hometown, she’s on the job. She knows this could be her big break.

If along the way Tiernay finds herself running for her life, scaling cliffs in the middle of the night, and evading her not-at-all-adventuresome mother, that’s all in a day’s work—and totally part of the plan.

Praise for Tiernay West, Professional Adventurer

“Tiernay’s voice is fresh and funny.” –Horn Book Guide

“Tiernay is an irrepressible role model in her unwavering self-confidence, intellectual curiosity, and sense of humor. Like the waiter who remembers she likes her soda with lime, cherries, and lemon wedges, readers will not forget Tiernay West anytime soon.” –School Library Journal

“Her focused determination overriding all obstacles and mishaps, Tiernay makes an appealing protagonist ... Fine fare for recent Cam Jansen and Encyclopedia Brown graduates.” –Kirkus Reviews

“Tiernay’s fierce self-confidence and individuality will appeal to many readers.” –Booklist

“Using her father's pseudonym, West, Tiernay is ready to make the leap from being a trainee to a full-fledged professional adventurer. Ready to have her ‘Tiernay West’ business cards printed up, she dreams of living on the edge, climbing the world's tallest mountains, or taming wild tigers in India ... Thoroughly entertaining.” –Children’s Literature
