Publisher's Summary

When you come from Nowhere, can you ever really make it anywhere? Author Dusti Bowling (Insignificant Events in the Life of a Cactus) returns to the desert to create a gripping story about friendship, hope, and finding the power we all have within ourselves.  

Welcome to Nowhere, Arizona, the least livable town in the United States. For Gus, a bright 13-year-old with dreams of getting out and going to college, life there is made even worse by Bo Taylor, Nowhere's biggest, baddest bully. When Bo tries to force Gus to eat a dangerously spiny cactus, Rossi Scott, one of the best racers in Nowhere, comes to his rescue - but in return she has to give Bo her prized dirt bike. 

Determined to buy it back, Gus agrees to go searching for gold in Dead Frenchman Mine, joined by his old friends Jessie Navarro and Matthew Dufort, and Rossi herself. As they hunt for treasure, narrowly surviving everything from cave-ins to mountain lions, they bond over shared stories of how hard life in Nowhere is - and they realize this adventure just may be their way out.

Interesting story

I bought this book on the recommendation of my fourth grade great niece. She had gone to her to school library and checked it out to read and really liked it. It deals a lot with bullying which is a big topic around now. I like the story concept. I liked the interactions among the characters. And I liked the fact that it was through Audible so I could hear it and listen to the voices

narrator emphasizes weird words

Fun story to listen to, but the reader emphasized like every third word and finished sentences with a breathy voice. Irritating!
