A Treasure of Their own is a story about four young adults who go out on adventures of their own after being mentored by Arthur's great-grandfather. The book started off by being very funny. Being female and a former college student, I could very well relate to Marci's college friends and their antics. Taylor was another one of the four who was female and seemed to have a hang up about men because of her abusive father. I thought it strange that she would want so desperately to be an Army sniper until the author wound the story around her trials and tribulations with one of the Army sergeants. That was pretty interesting. However, that was not half as interesting as what happened to Arthur. I presumed he was to be the main character but Mr. Givens had him assassinated. To be honest, the realism with which he wrote actually brought me to tears. And, then came the twist. I never would have thought that it would have turned out like that. Congrats Mr. Givens, you got me.
I found A Treasure of Their Own to be humorous in a lot of places, serious in a lot of places and greatly encouraging in a lot of places. I would suggest it to be good reading for all ages. I was given a free copy of the book for my honest review.
