When her best friend's house is threatened with foreclosure, young Annie Jenkins is full of ideas to save the home: selling her appendix on eBay, winning the lottery, facing down the bankers . . . anything to keep Jason from moving. But Jason's out-of-work dad blows up at the smallest things, and he’s not very happy with Annie’s interventions, which always seem to get them into more trouble. But when Annie tracks a lost treasure to Jason's backyard, she's sure the booty will be enough to save Jason’s family. Pirate treasure in the Midwest seems far-fetched, even to Annie, but it could be the answer to all their problems. Now all she has to do is convince Jason. As the two hunt for answers and the pressure gets to Jason and his family, Annie discovers that the best-laid plans aren’t always enough and there are worse things than moving away.

About the Author:

Janet Sumner Johnson lives in Oregon with her husband and three kids. She bakes a mean cinnamon twist and eats way more cookies than are good for her, which explains her running habit. Though her full-time occupation as evil tyrant/benevolent dictator (aka Mom) takes most of her time, she sneaks in writing at night when her inner funny bone is fully unleashed.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 4–6—Grade school best friends and neighbors Annie and Jason are as compatible as the ingredients of their favorite sandwich: peanut butter and jelly. When Jason learns that he'll have to move to California because his parents' house is undergoing foreclosure, Annie starts concocting unrealistic plans, such as selling her appendix to save his house. Then cranky elderly neighbor Mrs. Schuster bequeaths Annie and Jason something even better: a map that will lead them to treasure buried in the neighborhood. As Annie tries to find the treasure to help Jason, she inadvertently causes him several problems, including destroying the garden his family was relying on for food. At its surface, this is the story of two kids trying to distract themselves with a treasure hunt as serious life circumstances threaten to separate them. However, it's also about Annie's struggle to adapt to change, her ability to figure out realistic solutions to problems, and her realization that even Mrs. Schuster needs companionship. The plot and the character arcs are realistic and fully realized. Readers will get caught up in Annie's funny, desperate quest to save Jason's house but will also relate to the disappointment she feels when she messes up. This is an insightful depiction of two kids wanting what is best for their friendship in a post-recession economy. VERDICT A general purchase for most middle grade collections, especially in communities that are still feeling ripple effects from the 2008 recession.—Liz Anderson, DC Public Library
