Eric and Chris are avid geocachers who stumble into a very strange search for a series of geocaches. At first they are merely curious, but as the stakes rise and the challenges become more trying, the boys get truly hooked. Convinced they are indeed on the trail of treasure, they become consumed with the search, and though their quest tests their strength, intelligence, courage and even their friendship, they don't give up.

Eric and Chris are on the hunt for a geocache but why does the GPS coordinate lead them to a cemetery, and why is there a wedding taking place on the spot they need to search? So begins this high-interest, low-level story, another winner in the Orca Currents series. The teens realize that their search is something more than their usual caching trip and with it comes adventure, mystery, and danger. A good look at how the strengths of each person add to the quality of a relationship (and in this case, to the successful geocache mission). Perhaps teens new to geocaching will take it up, getting them off the couch. A win-win for them as they will have fun while learning about their communities and getting a bit of exercise at the same time. Appropriate for older teens who are struggling with reading.
