Martin Cruz and Hannah Vaughan believe their town is cursed; that’s why the high school football team always loses, the two major factories went bankrupt, and strange accidents keep occurring. The kids team up to save the mysterious Spirit Tree, which could bring good luck back to the town. Danger lurks around every corner, but these two strong characters—both of them sporty and clever, with diverse backgrounds—can hold their own. Short chapters amp up the pace and hold attention, bolstering the story’s wild suspense. Ages eight to twelve.
