Jack and Annie have worked hard to help out history, but now they are being rewarded with a dream vacation! They choose to go to Cozumel to stay at a spa hotel and spend time at the beach. But when the magic goes awry, they end up in the past of Mexico and instead of relaxing they find themselves in real danger!
I loved this newest book in the series! It was fun to read and the cover is incredibly appealing: sharks never go out of popularity with young readers. I loved that Mayan history is added to the mix and the message about gender equality. One of my favorite that I have read in the series! This might be my next read-aloud to the first and second graders!
