Publisher: Viking Books for Young Readers
Release Date: October 15th 2015
An intricately crafted mystery set in the contemporary Middle East.This book sounds incredible. Not only is it set in Turkey, but it's also a mystery and quest to find a treasure. Y'all know how much I love my mysteries - I live and breathe them. I also have a fascination with Turkey because of one of my favourite mangas that is set in Ancient Turkey and also because I'm super interested in ancient cultures.
Zan is a politician’s daughter and an adrenaline junkie. Whether she’s rock climbing or shoplifting, she loves to live on the edge. But she gets more of a rush than she bargained for on a forced mother–daughter bonding trip to Turkey, where she finds herself in the crosshairs of an antiquities smuggling ring. These criminals believe that Zan can lead them to an ancient treasure that’s both priceless and cursed. Until she does so, she and her family are in grave danger. Zan’s quest to save the treasure—and the lives of people she cares about—leads her from the sparkling Mediterranean, to the bustle of Istanbul's Grand Bazaar, to the eerie and crumbling caves of Cappadocia. But it seems that nowhere is safe, and there’s only so high she can climb before everything comes tumbling down.
I'm super excited for this novel and it's definitely high on my anticipated reads list.
