Treasure Hunt – Week 2

Where’s the clue?

Welcome back! Clue 2 in my Orca Book treasure hunt is found in the title of an upcoming book by Robin Stevenson.

Robin is an award-winning BC author who has written 18 books for teens and kids. Everything from early chapter books to YA novels. Many of her teen characters struggle through serious issues, challenges and emotions. Robin deals with the tough stuff with honesty and humour and strength.

This spring, Robin’s first nonfiction book hits the shelves, published by Orca. The first word in the title is this week’s clue.

Hint: Jack feels this strong emotion for the Lancers in Betting Game.

Treasure? What treasure?

Come back in 2 weeks for Clue 3.

If you collect all 7 clues, you could win $50 in Orca Books. And new books are the best treasure of all.

How to play

  1. Read the 7 Treasure Hunt posts in my blog, posted biweekly between December 1 and February 23. Follow the links to another Orca author. (Late getting started? Catch up here.)
  2. You’re looking for a word hidden in the title of a newly published or upcoming Orca book. The word relates in some way to my Orca Sports novel Betting Game, so look for words about teamwork, soccer or gambling.
  3. Once you’ve found all 7 words, send them to me by March 14 via my Contact page. Remember to include your name and a valid email address. (Sorry—you have to live in Canada or the United States to win.)
  4. I’ll post the winner’s name by March 22.

Good luck and happy hunting!
