Review: Unearthed by Lara Stauffer 5 STARS Well I did not put the book dowm till I had finshed reading it. It was a good story than it got even better. No swearwords, no sex scenes. A good adventure made me want to go thier if it was a real place. Mexico had a earthquake at the start of the book. It uncovered something out at a dig sight in the jungle where a group was coming to work in a couple of weeks. Matt Staubach had just graduated from high school and in the fall he is going to Duke on a full basketball scholarship. His mother woke him up and asking him to help his father today and remember he was going to eat dinner with the family tonight. Matt has not been close to his father since his sophomore year when he was sent to the hospital and his dad did not even come home to see him. Matt also stopped going to church at the same time. His dad is going to spend the summer down in Mexico on a archaeology dig. He is a professor at BYU. He wants Matt to go down with him. Matt has no intention of going and spending time with his father. One of his dads student that went to school with Matt since they were five bribed him to go down to Mexico with his dad for a month. Taryn will tutor him in his classes all freshman year via skype. Also would he teach her about football. Taryn does not spend time with her father all he is into is his sons football games. When Matt tells her all his dad is into his work and not his basketball games. He did not go to any while his mom went to all of them. Taryn is a nerd and starting collage as a Junior. The kids in high school teased her and call her names.Matt included. Before they go Matt's mom cuts and styles her hair and plucks her brows and she looks a lot different. Because of the earthquake in Mexico and the telaphone call about the fisher that opened at the site they left the next day. Matt's dad was excited that Matt had changed his mind about going with him. I really got lost in the story. Liked all the characters and how they worked together. It also had a second part a different story in the middle of the book. I don't want to give that away here though. I would read more books by Lara based on Unearthed. I was given this ebook to read in exchange for honest review from Netgalley. 07/10/2012 PUB Cedar Fort
