Synopsis

A Legendary Ghost, An Ancient Treasure, A Mystery Only Samantha Sutton Can Solve There's nothing Samantha Sutton wants more than to become an adventure-seeking archaeologist like her brilliant Uncle Jay. Samantha's big dreams are finally coming true when Jay invites her along on a summer excavation of an ancient temple in the Peruvian Andes.
But this adventure isn't exactly what she thought it would be with her nosy older brother, Evan, and Jay's colleagues monitoring her every move. And she has to deal with the local legend, EI Loco: a ghostly madman who supposedly haunts the ruins. But when the project's most important finds go missing, it's up to Samantha to solve the mystery before the treasures of the temple are lost forever.

City Book Review

The author writes in the Spanish then gives the translation, or, if Samantha knows the words, he gives it in English, so you can see Samantha learning.
