Search for Treasure (The Islanders)
By Mary Alice Monroe and Angela May
Publication date: June 14, 2022
The sequel to New York Times bestselling author Mary Alice Monroe’s The Islanders, a beautiful story of friendship, loss, and the healing power of nature.
Jake Potter is back on Dewees Island for another summer with his grandmother, Honey, and his friends Macon and Lovie. Jake is excited that his dad will also be on island as he continues to recover from his war injuries. Father and son must get used to a new normal, which isn’t easy. As a boy, his dad discovered treasure coins and stored them in an old tree fort on the island. Jake knows if he can find the tree fort, maybe his dad will be happy again—and he knows Macon and Lovie are the perfect fellow treasure hunters. The search for treasure is on!
Meanwhile, Macon is adjusting to being a big brother, while Lovie is navigating a new relationship with the two visiting boys on the island. The treasure search leads them to battle some unwelcome guests on the island–both the two and four-legged kind!
On the Islanders’ biggest quest yet, the three friends realize that the treasures they really want in life were with them all along.
“Storytelling for young readers at its finest—equal parts summer adventure and environmental suspense…[a] love letter to family, friendship, and the natural world.” —Kwame Alexander, New York Times bestselling author of The Crossover
