The Book Scavenger series

In Jennifer Chambliss Bertman’s New York Times bestselling Book Scavenger series for young readers, Emily and James explore San Francisco, solving puzzles and finding clues to uncover the whereabouts of hidden books. But there are those who play the Book Scavenger game for higher stakes, drawing the young heroes into dangerous mysteries they must use all their wits to solve. “The codes and puzzles are pitched at the perfect level for tween sleuths, and the literary references…will pique readers’ interests in doing some scavenging of their own.”–Bookpage
