It’s Thanksgiving break and Colophon is excited to catch up on homework and spend time reading, but her life is about to change. Colophon is  set on a quest. She must convince her brother, Case, to go to New York and help her father save the publishing company and she must find the family’s treasure with the help of her second cousin, Jerry. 

This was a perfect mystery-adventure story for a young adult reader. It leaves you at the edge of your seat wanting to know what is going to happen next. The references to Shakespeare provide good points for discussion.
