Synopsis

When Carly Sullivan's mother agrees to let Carly and best friend Zoë accompany her on an archaeological dig, the girls are ecstatic. Three months in the jungles of Guatemala helping a team of archaeologists unearth ancient Maya artifacts; it sounds like the perfect adventure. When a valuable artifact goes missing, though, Carly's mother gets blamed, and their dream summer turns into a nightmare. With the help of Zoë and new friend Lio, Carly sets out to catch the thief responsible and save her mother's job. They scale Maya pyramids, search secret caves, and confront fearsome wildlife. They soon learn that the jungle is alive with danger, especially when you're hunting something that doesn't want to be caught.
