Find the fortune, break the curse!
The hunt is on for an ancient treasure tied to nine-year-old J.B.’s family history. He’s been having visions that make him sweaty, lightheaded, and certain he’s turning into some kind of freak—or worse, going insane. But things are worse than he imagined. The visions stem from a family curse. An ancient ancestor was accused of stealing the massive Granville fortune, and now J.B.’s entirely family will suffer.
To break the curse, J.B. must find and return the Granville’s stolen property. But he’s not the only one searching for the treasure. As he sets out on his journey through a dark and foreboding forest, he’ll battle his worst fears and fight terrifying creatures along the way. And when he meets two others who share the missing pieces of his visions and suffer from the same curse, the three soon realize they need to work together to break the curse before it’s too late.

Treasure Hunting Must Haves
In Curse of the Granville Fortune, Jack “J.B.” Beaumont learns you have to be prepared when you’re hunting for treasure. So here are some tips from J.B. himself:
· Don’t go hunting empty-handed – Especially if you’re heading into a scary forest that preys on your worst fears. If you’re like me and don’t like weapons, bring a rope. You never know when you might need one.
· Bring food and water – Treasure hunting can take a while, so bring plenty of food and a canteen that you can refill with water. Just keep in mind that food will attract hungry animals.
· Use a treasure map – You need to know where to start your search, so having a treasure map is a must.
· Wear comfortable shoes and clothes – Running for your life isn’t out of the question. Make sure you’re wearing sneakers. And nights can get cold, so wear layers.
· Watch out for other people who are searching for the same treasure – Money makes people greedy and kind of crazy. Be careful of people who want the same treasure you’re after. They’ll use you in any way possible.
· Don’t go alone – It’s too easy to get lost or in a dangerous situation, so make sure you have someone with you to help you out. Oh, and your little sister probably isn’t the best choice unless you want to end up babysitting while you’re treasure hunting.
Those are your treasure hunting tips from J.B. Happy hunting!
