About the Book

Readers who love Leslie Connor and Ann M. Martin will adore this story of a citywide scavenger hunt and a girl who learns that family—and weirdness—is relative.

Summer Coding Camp

Incoming 7th graders only

Eight-week session begins June 28

This is it, my summer plan.

Hoping to ditch two months of chicken coops, kale, and her parents’ antiscreen rules, Mac MacLeod sets out to win a citywide food cart scavenger hunt and the money she needs for the summer coding camp of her dreams.

But Mac discovers more than just clues during her cross-city sprint—like how her weird parents might not be the worst thing compared to the circumstances of those around her.

With the same humor and hope of her debut novel, Mostly the Honest Truth, Jody J. Little gives readers another spunky, unforgettable character to root for.

Educator and Librarian Resources

Critical Praise

“Readers will appreciate following the food-focused treasure hunt, Mac's zeal for coding, and her compassionate friends. Earnest, entertaining and original.” - Kirkus Reviews

PRAISE FOR Mostly the Honest Truth:   “This upbeat tale portrays a hero’s journey that takes a community to complete.” - Kirkus Reviews

“Jane is an old-fashioned fix-it kid in this sweet story of folks young and old in need of what the Three Boulders stand for: forgiveness, redemption, and community.”
- Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

“To get to Three Boulders, turn right at the juncture of sadness and courage, keep straight to the edge of wisdom, and take the fork to understanding.  You won’t want to leave that magical place.” - Susan Patron, Newbery Medal-winning author of The Higher Power of Lucky

“Jane Pengilly is prickly, persistent—and an utter delight! She, and the other inhabitants of Three Boulders, will take your heart apart and put it back together again. A superb debut.” - Leslie Connor, author of The Truth as Told by Mason Buttle
