Description

Jamie has been dreaming of this summer forever: of road trips and intensive art camps, of meeting cute boys with her best friend Jazz. What she didn't count on was the car accident.

Exiled away from her family as her mother slowly learns to walk again, Jamie is sent to Provence and trapped in an isolated home with the French grandmother she has never met, the guilt of having almost killed her parents, and no Wi-Fi. Enough to drive a girl mad. That is, until, she finds an old letter from her father, the starting point in a treasure hunt that spans across cities and time itself. Somehow, she knows that the treasure is the key to putting her shattered family back together and that whatever lies at the end has the power to fix everything.

Armed only with a high-school-level of French and a map of local train lines, she must enlist the aid of Valentin, a handsome neighbor boy who's willing to translate. To save her family, she has castle ruins to find and sea cliffs to climb; falling for her translator wasn't part of her plan...

Review quote

"I couldn't read this book fast enough! AIX MARKS THE SPOT has got everything you could possibly want in a YA contemporary: a complex exploration of family and redemption, powerful characters who demand you keep reading, and an examination of how tragedy can lead to love, all wrapped up in a fun, treasure-hunt-style game."
- Madeline Dyer, author of the Untamed series



"Aix Marks the Spot is at once an insightful exploration of a family splintered by long-buried secrets and a paean to the enduring power of love. By turns hopeful and uncertain, timid and audacious, Jamie is a heroine you will cheer for every step of the way."
- Emily Colin, NYT bestselling author of The Memory Thief
