The Goonies meets Book Scavenger when three sisters hunt for Blackbeard’s legendary treasure in this action-packed middle grade novel from Jess Rinker, The Dare Sisters.

“The Dare sisters are hunting for treasure, but the real treasure is the story that unfolds in the pages of this book. It’s smart, funny and full of heart; I couldn’t put this rollicking adventure down.” —Kathi Appelt, author of The Underneath

Savannah Dare has always wanted to be a pirate. She grew up on legends of Blackbeard from her grandfather—her best friend and fellow treasure hunter.

But now he’s gone. Savannah and her sisters, Frances and Jolene are left to find Blackbeard’s lost loot on their own. It was their grandfather’s dream, and they can’t let him down.

No one else in their small town on Ocracoke Island believes Blackbeard’s treasure is truly still out there . . . no one except their grandfather’s mysterious old business partner, who’s determined to find it himself. And when their family home is endangered, the Dare sisters realize finding Blackbeard’s treasure is their only hope!

Jess Rinker:
Jess Rinker always wanted to find treasure as a child. In the woods or on the beach, she was always hunting for something, and when she first visited the Outer Banks of North Carolina at fourteen, she discovered the incredible history there was a treasure in itself. She could never be a pirate because she gets seasick, but writing about pirates has been quite fun. She’s now a children’s author and writing teacher, and she still searches for treasures. She is the author of The Dare Sisters and The Dare Sisters: Shipwrecked.
