THE TREASURE HUNT Melody_Writes

Description

When sixteen-year-old Benjamin McGill is shipped off to Maine to stay with his grandmother for the summer, it’s not a vacation—it’s a punishment. Ben’s bored out of his mind—until he finds a letter from an admirer with promises of a treasure hunt.

Ben follows clues to a cafe where he befriends Mitch, a long-haired metal head, and Jennifer, a chain-smoking extrovert. When Jennifer learns about the treasure hunt and invites Mitch and herself along, Ben’s summer quickly picks up, like a heavy guitar solo in the middle of a power ballad.

But when Ben starts making metal playlists on Spotify and daydreaming about Mitch's long hair and stubbly jaw, he realizes he wants to be more than friends. Now Ben must decide if he should risk everything and tell Mitch how he feels, or play it safe and continue the games with his secret admirer.

Really cute story. Fun to read, I enjoyed the characters. I wish we got to see a coming out scene between the MC and his grandmother. I felt like it was leading to it, but it didn't happen. Ending was maybe a bit predictable, but I still wanted to finish it.

The description is so intriguing and from just the first chapter, I was excited to see how it would develop. But the formating is so painful to read. Why is everything bold and underlined? I don't think I'll be able to finish it as it stands now.

Thanks for reading and thanks for the feedback! I don't know why, but I'm having so much trouble with the e-reader formatting. Swoon staff has been super helpful switching the files for me, but every time we "fix" it, it seems to get worse! ahh! I'll see if I can do something else to fix it... Thanks again! :)

I fell for the characters. They felt real and fleshed out.
I loved the story, the concept was simple and managed in a very elegant way.

I can't think of any right now. I liked the originality of the story.
