Tiernay West, Professional Adventurer was on the 2008-2009 Land of Enchantment Children's List (under its original title, Secret of the Three Treasures).
Tiernay's voice is fresh and funny.
Tiernay's fierce self-confidence and individuality will appeal to many readers, and veterans of clique warfare and bullying will cheer her on as she exposes the school's biggest creep.
Using her father's pseudonym, West, Tiernay is ready to make the leap from being a trainee to a full-fledged professional adventurer. Ready to have her "Tiernay West" business cards printed up, she dreams of living on the edge, climbing the world's tallest mountains, or taming wild tigers in India... This book is a fun read for late elementary aged children who, like Tiernay, like to solve a good mystery and are a bit fun loving and curious themselves. Thoroughly entertaining.
