Hi all. I am thrilled to be able to share the cover and plot for the second book in the Charlie Thorne series, which will be published on March 2, 2021. Here’s yet another masterpiece by the great Lucy Cummins:
As you can see, there’s all sorts of great action and adventure here on the cover alone. Here’s the official plot synopsis:
Charlie Thorne is a genius.
Charlie Thorne is a fugitive.
Charlie Thorne isn’t even thirteen.
After saving the world, Charlie is ready to take it easy in the Galapagos Islands. That is, until she’s approached by the mysterious Esmeralda Castle, who has a code she knows only Charlie can decipher.
In 1835, Charles Darwin diverted his ship’s journey so he could spend ten months in South America on a secret solo expedition. When he returned, he carried a treasure that inspired both awe and terror in his crew. Afterward, it vanished, never to be seen again…
But Darwin left a trail of clues behind for those brave and clever enough to search for it.
Enter Charlie Thorne.
In a daring adventure that takes her across South America, Charlie must crack Darwin’s 200-year-old clues to track down his mysterious discovery—and stay ahead of the formidable lineup of enemies who are hot on her tail.
When an ancient hidden treasure is at stake, people will do anything to find it first. Charlie may be a genius, but is she smart enough to know who she can trust?
As usual, I am not going to answer any more questions about the plot, because the more you know, the less fun the book will be to read.
But I will say this. I test every one of my books out on my kids and they LOVED this one. Once we hit the last half of the book, they wouldn’t stop reading. So hopefully, all of you will love it too. I’m really proud of it.
Although it doesn’t come out until next March, it is already available for preorder here.
