From School Library Journal:

Grade 3-5–In this new twist to the series, readers meet Jess, who is on an archaeological dig in Belize with her parents. It is a trip of firsts, and the 10-year-old is excited about the adventures that await her. The characters are well drawn and likable, and the print is fairly large. The story line is well thought out and the factual information about dig sites and Maya culture are seamlessly integrated into the text. An afterword, complete with full-color photos, introduces 10-year-old Elyse, a real girl who has accompanied her archaeologist parents on several two-month digs in Belize. American Girl fans will enjoy this addition to the series.–Krista Tokarz, Cuyahoga County Public Library, OH
