Eight-year-old Iva Honeycutt is sure that she’s destined for greatness. And this summer Iva has big plans to make her first great discovery: finding General Braddock’s treasure, which was buried somewhere in her small town of Uncertain, Virginia during the French and Indian War. And to make sure she’s up to the task, she invents a new name for her discoverer self, Iva Honeysuckle.
Still, even a great discoverer can hit a few bumps on the road. Like Iva’s bossy double-first cousin, Heaven. And her great-great-grandfather Ludwell’s treasure map not exactly being crystal clear. And on top of it all, her supposedly trusty dog, Sweetlips, falling asleep on the job. Must Iva do everything on her own?
Candice Ransom and Heather Ross have created a sweet, self-assured and completely irrepressible heroine in Iva.
