Saltwater Taffy is an Accelerated Reader title, endorsed by 12 Teachers of the Year around the country. The adventure story follows the lives of five 'tweenage' friends as they uncover a treasure map that once belonged to the ruthless New Orleans pirate, Jean Lafitte. The discovery thrusts them from one treasure-hunting adventure to the next as they try to out-wit, out-think and out-maneuver everyone from the one-legged junk-yard man and an overbearing town bully, to the creepy old man living at the top of the hill. Saltwater Taffy is a coming-of-age adventure that grabs the reader and never lets go.
