Review
I would definitely rate this book a 5 because it is full of suspense and adventure. I like how each chapter is told by a different person. The stories are all connected and the ending is a big surprise. Follow these three children and their dog on their adventures. I will warn you there are some sad parts but there is also a lot of laughs and some silly curse words. I read this book and liked it so much that we listened to the audio version on the car.   Find this in the WPL catalog.

Review
It was very intriguing and I wanted to keep going. It drew me in. It was suspenseful and I wanted to know what the characters would do next. The Alden children went to a ruby mine and a backpack went missing. It was returned with nothing lost. Someone found a very special ruby and there is a contest to see who can find the biggest ruby. I don't want to ruin the mystery so please read it!   Find this in the WPL catalog.
