PRLog - Nov. 4, 2012 - New Juvenile Adventure Novel Follows A Young Boy In His Search For Lost Treasure

Author, Christopher Cloud is pleased to announce the release of his juvenile fiction novel, A Boy Called Duct Tape. This story follows a young boy’s journey on his search for the Jesse James treasure.

Pablo Perez is a 12-year-old kid without much going for him. His classmates have dubbed him “Duct Tape” because his tattered discount-store sneakers are held together with…you guessed it, duct tape. He can’t escape the bullying.

Pablo’s luck begins to change after he finds a $20 gold coin while swimming with his sister in a river near their home. Pablo later buys a $1 treasure map at the county fair. The map shows the route to the “lost treasure” of the outlaw Jesse James. Pablo can’t help but wonder: Is there a link between the map and the gold coin?

He is determined to find out, and he, his 9-year-old sister, Pia, and 13-year-old cousin, Kiki, hire an ill-mannered cave guide, Monroe Huff, and begin a treacherous underground adventure in search of treasure. Their treasure hunt is made more perilous because they are being followed by the notorious Blood brothers, who want the treasure for themselves. The Blood brothers will stop at nothing to claim the treasure as their own.

Amazon.com reviewers are comparing this novel to movies like the Goonies and Indiana Jones.
