Gasparilla's Treasure by Scott Clements

This story grabs your attention fast and holds it. It's a treasure hunt trying to find the pirate Gasparilla's treasure.
Trip always visits his grandfather in the rest home. Someday he is recongized
and others not. He even talks and plays game with some of the others in the carecenter. Trip is 13.
One day Trip's grandfather told him to find the trunk in the attic. his family
needed the money.
Trip tells his mother and she gets upset that his father and grandfather were
always wasteing time in the trunk.  That she won't have him waste the time away too. Finally she gives in and gives him the key to the trunk.
Thier is a new girl in school and Trip makes her laugh until the bully &goons
come to set an example by beating up Trip because he did not have money to pay protection service.  He also told Sarah Valentine that she was his new girl friend. Sarah threatened him with mace.
Josh is Trip good friend who is always on his game player. Josh,Trip and Sarah figure out where the four pieces of map are and try and find them together.
Eli and goons are spying on them trying to get them in trouble and get them
to  pay him.
Its fun to read thier adventure and see them get closer to the treasure and not give up because of hurdles in the road.
I was given this book to read in exchange of honest review by Librarything.
