Item description for Lydia Barnes & The Blood Diamond Treasure (Global Warning Series) by Heather Gemmen Wilson...

Lydia Barnes is not your typical 14-year-old. Sure, she plays her iPod nonstop and rolls her eyes at her dad's dumb jokes--but she also finds herself dodging lion attacks, outwitting rebel warriors, and heading up globe-trotting adventures.
On a trip to Liberia, Africa, with her adventurous father, Frank Barnes, and her quirky tutor Gretchen Hinkle, Lydia finds herself caught up in a treasure hunt with her new best friend Ben. If they can unravel the mystery and solve all of the clues, Lydia and Ben may find the treasure desperately needed by the doctors in this war-torn country.

But they are not alone in their quest. . .

Will Ben and Lydia outwit the rebel soldier who holds a valuable clue? Will they stay one step ahead of the shadowy person who seems to know their every move?

Join Lydia Barnes in the hunt for the blood diamond treasure!

Publishers Description
The Global Warning Series features the adventures of Lydia Barnes, a 14-year-old girl who travels with her widower missionary father to exciting locations around the world. In each story Lydia finds herself facing new challenges that introduce readers ages 8 through 12 to world issues and how God can make a difference as they develop a Christian worldview. This series of intrigue also addresses age-appropriate personal, social, and spiritual themes that encourage readers to depend on God in their own spiritual journey. In book one of this series, Lydia joins her father, Frank, on a trip to Liberia, Africa, and finds herself caught up in a treasure hunt with her new best friend, Ben. If they can unravel the mystery and solve all of the clues, Lydia and Ben may find the treasure desperately needed by the doctors in this war-torn country.

Reviews - What do customers think about Lydia Barnes & The Blood Diamond Treasure (Global Warning Series)?

Not just for kids!  Aug 6, 2007
Lydia Barnes and the Blood Diamond Treasure is an exciting start to a promising adventure series. Fourteen-year-old Lydia travels to West Africa with her very cool dad and confronts many issues socially, spiritually, and personally. She takes to heart how the epidemic of AIDS affects people personally. She meets people who have been deeply wounded by the hardships of war. She struggles with the loss of her own mother and learns to trust God.

This book is a page-turner and a tear-jerker. No matter what your age, you'll read it through in one sitting.
I like it!  Aug 4, 2007
I am 11 years old and I like this book because I really wanted to keep reading and usually I don't want to keep reading unless it's good.

I like it that Lydia's dad is so cool and that they got to go to Africa. There was one part that made me sooooooo sad. You will cry.

K. That's all. Tx.
Lots of Fun  Aug 3, 2007
Fair Warning: I'm in love with this author, who happens to be my wife in addition to being a great novelist.

That said, as a professional editor I rarely find a writer who can connect so well with her target audience. KIDS LOVE THIS BOOK!

Every child I've seen within arm's reach of it has devoured it from cover to cover. Most adults do too.

This is a fun read, and the author manages to work a strong message into it without harming the story.
Page turner for kids of all ages!  Aug 2, 2007
Regardless if you're a kid by age or by heart, you'll love Lydia Barnes and the Blood Diamond Treasure! I bought a copy for myself and 5 of the young preteens in my life. I couldn't put it down, finishing it in one sitting, and the girls were almost as bad. I finally had to make them put the book away when the day got too dark outside to read where we were.

I highly recommend this book. You'll fall in love with Lydia, her dad, and the friends they live with in this book. Join Lydia as she discovers Liberia, learns more about herself and her faith, and understands the struggles of people in other parts of the world.
