Description

"A bold, big-hearted start to a groundbreaking new series." —Soman Chainani, author of The School for Good and Evil

The New York Times bestselling author of the Seven Wonders series and books in the 39 Clues series, Peter Lerangis, brings us the enthralling first installment of the adventure-filled Max Tilt trilogy.

When thirteen-year-old Max Tilt happens upon his great-great-great-grandfather Jules Verne's unfinished, unpublished manuscript, The Lost Treasures, he doesn't realize that he's found the answers to all his problems. And Max has a lot of problems—his mother is sick, his father is out of work, and his home is about to be foreclosed on. But when Max and his cousin Alex discover that Verne's last work reveals everything he wrote was fact, not fiction, they realize that the book holds the key to something incredibly valuable. A treasure that can save his house—and maybe his entire family.

But Max and Alex aren't the only ones who know about Verne's clues. Spencer Niemend, a strange skunk-haired man who has spent his life researching Verne's works, is bent on reshaping the world with the hidden treasure. To find it first, Max and Alex must go on an adventure that'll take them from the broken remains of an underwater city to the very jaws of a giant squid to the edges of a whirlpool from which no one has ever emerged alive.

This is the first book in a new hair-raising, edge-of-your-seat adventure series from master storyteller and New York Times bestselling author Peter Lerangis.

        Gr 4-6-With his mother in the hospital, his father unemployed, the mortgage overdue, and utilities shut off, 13-year-old Max Tilt needs help, but he never expects that his salvation might come from his great-great-great-grandfather Jules Verne. Searching for garage sale items, he and his cousin Alex Verne find a strange chest in the attic; the clues inside it lead them to the unpublished chapters of Verne's memoir, The Lost Treasures, and to the path that Verne followed in 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. But Alex and Max are not alone in their quest for the lost treasure-evil tycoon Spencer Niemand has made it his life's goal to claim it and build an underwater civilization, his own refuge for a dying planet. Together this unlikely team venture to a lost underwater city, cross treacherous frozen mountains, battle giant squid, navigate vicious whirlpools, and brave deadly cold on a quest that may follow the passage of the real, not fictional, Nautilus. Lerangis brings Jules Verne to life for a new generation, and instantly pulls readers in with enticing clues, fast-paced action, and intriguing characters. Max is a likeable hero; he is clever, brave, and ready to risk it all for his family. He has been labeled as "on the spectrum;" his emotions trigger associative smells, he loves facts, and sometimes has trouble relating to people. VERDICT Readers will be hooked by the high-octane adventure and charmed by the well-developed characters. Fans of Percy Jackson and Harry Potter will eagerly await Max Tilt's next adventure.-MaryAnn Karre, Vestal, NY

        Two young descendants of Jules Verne must stay one step ahead of a villain attempting to steal their ancestor's treasure. When his parents must go to the Mayo Clinic for medical tests on his mom, 13-year-old, "on the spectrum" Max Tilt is left in the care of his cousin Alex, who is taking a break from college to write a novel. But Max's parents leave behind a mountain of unpaid bills, including an eviction notice. The cousins decide to sell off some of the junk in the attic to raise money, but one piece, Verne's wooden chest, attracts the attention of Fix, a nefarious criminal determined to follow Verne's clues and secure the prize. And while the cousins look nothing alike (Max's father is Dominican while his mother is white, and Alex's mother is African-American while his father is white), they think alike, agreeing to enter into a dangerous partnership with Fix. They may have brains and creativity, but he has gadgets, manpower, and money. Max's inability to comprehend sarcasm and mild synesthesia (fear makes him smell fish) combine with Alex's rebelliousness and creativity to make them a unique and compelling duo. The fast-moving plot is filled with puzzles, riddles, and trivia. Max's tendency to take everything literally creates plenty of humorous misunderstandings; while the tightly focused third-person narration makes Max a three-dimensional character, this quirk may unfortunately have readers laughing at him rather than with him. A new series for sci-fi enthusiasts and adventure seekers. (Adventure. 9-12)

        September 18, 2017
        In this exciting first book in the Max Tilt series, two teens race across the world to solve a treasure hunt created by legendary author Jules Verne. With 13-year-old Max Tilt’s parents away, his 18-year-old cousin, Alexandra, is left in charge. While exploring the attic, they discover a chest once owned by Verne, from whom the cousins are descended. Inside, they find the first set of clues leading to a long-lost manuscript, which purports that Verne’s stories were based in reality. But they also attract the attention of ruthless businessman Spencer Niemand, who wants whatever treasure Verne left behind. Forced to work with Niemand, Max and Alex join him aboard his own fantastical submarine for a globe-spanning, death-defying adventure. Clever puzzles will grab readers’ attention, and biracial Max (who is Dominican on his father’s side) isn’t your average hero: he’s on the autism spectrum and has synesthesia, which manifests as emotions having scents, such as smelling fish when he’s scared. The fast pace and nifty concepts carry Lerangis’s story, and the ending neatly sets up future installments. Ages 8–12.
