It is Renee’s eleventh birthday and her grandfather has promised her a fantastic surprise. But there’s a clause to it… Renee must keep it a secret from her parents and she has to go on a treasure hunt to find it. With unfortunate turn of events, her grandfather expires before giving her the first clue. Soon, Renee’s parents move to a new locality where she makes friends with Anita and Sacchu. With her friends by her side and having her back, Renee decides to try and find the treasure on her own. What follows is an adventure of a lifetime.

I loved the book even though the book is clearly meant for a much younger audience. The language is dainty and the narrative is entertaining. But the best part of the book is the way it has captured the innocence of a child. Be it Renee or Anita or Sacchu, they have a certain charm and air of innocence about them that is lost in today’s world. Their camaraderie reminded me of my own childhood and the trust I had in my friends. It is hard to find it these days. The well-paced and interesting plot also has a few twists to offer giving the readers even more reasons to continue reading.

I am not one to judge a book by its cover, but this book has a beautiful and pleasing cover which is a bonus for cover fanatics.
