Treasure Island : runaway gold / Jewell Parker Rhodes.

Rhodes, Jewell Parker, (author.). Stevenson, Robert Louis, 1850-1894 Adaptation of (expression): Treasure Island. (Added Author).


Zane is itching for an adventure that will whisk him away from his family's boardinghouse in Rockaway, Queens--and from the memory of his dad's recent death. Some days it seems like the most exciting part of his life is listening to his favorite boarder, Captain Maddie, recount her tales of sailing the seven seas. But when a threatening crew of skater kids crashes the boardinghouse, a dying Captain Maddie entrusts Zane with a secret: a real treasure map leading to a spot somewhere in Manhattan. With his friends Kiko and Jack--and his dog, Hip-Hop--Zane takes the ferry over to the city to start the search. Through a strange coincidence, they meet a man who is eager to help them find the treasure: John, another sailor who knows all about the buried history of Black New Yorkers of centuries past--and the gold that is h idden somewhere in those stories. As the rival skater crew chases them around the city, Zane and his friends begin to wonder who they can really trust. And soon it becomes clear that treasure hunting is a dangerous business... -- Provided by publisher.
