This is my favorite book. A few reasons it because they talk about money and how they are worth. the part that hooked me was when i started reading it i had to see what was next happening. Another reason was that when mike the main charcter goes to his dads and they go in to fort that is on the island which was used in the Civil War. When they find a coin in the fort they try to find information but a hurricane comes and knocks down the fort.
