Title: Curse of the Granville Fortune (Granville Fortune #1)
Publisher: Tantrum Books
Author: Kelly Hashway
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.

Diary of a Middle Grade Author
I had that dream again last night. The one where I’m in the woods and the trees transform into scary beasts and chase after me. No worries though. I found out I can fly. Yup, that’s right. I just jumped into the air and soared over those leafy creatures. Of course things won’t be so easy for J.B. and his friends inside Braeden Forest. Sometimes I feel bad for bringing J.B.’s worst fears to life. He’s just a kid. But I think this experience is making him tougher.
It’s not easy being nine and thinking you’re losing your mind. He’s definitely got a tough road ahead of him, especially with all the secrets surrounding his family. Maybe I should give him the ability to fly. No, that’s too easy. Sorry, J.B. He’s just going to have to find another way to get out of that forest. Does this make me a mean author? I guess I’ll have to see how this story plays out before I decide. If J.B.’s still talking to me by then, I’ll know I wasn’t too mean to him.
Anyway, I guess it’s back to the forest for me. I left poor J.B. there in a pretty sticky situation. Until next time, diary.
