Lyza loves to look through the kaleidoscope her mother gave her before her mother left the family. In the kaleidoscope, shapes break apart but come together more beautifully than before. Lyza is hoping her life will come together like that. In a series of poems, Lyza describes the summer of the treasure. It started when Lyza's beloved, sea-faring, Gramps died leaving Lyza a thick brown envelope. Inside are three maps and a letter. Using the maps as guides, Lyza and her best friends, Malcolm and Carolann, discover that Captain Kidd, the pirate, may have buried some treasure in their hometown. All summer long, Lyza and her friends secretly dig at night behind the church trying to find this treasure. Will they get caught? Will they ever find treasure? What will they do if they find the treasure? You won't be able to put the book down until the end.
