The secret box
Call #:J RINGW
by Whitaker Ringwald
It looked like an ordinary package.
On her twelfth birthday, Jax Malone receives a surprise gift from her great-aunt Juniper: a mysterious locked box that will only open in one location. If Jax’s mom hadn’t freaked out and tried to return it, Jax wouldn’t have paid much attention. She would have assumed it was just another boring present to add to the most boring, un-magical birthday ever.
Instead, Jax decides she must open the box—whatever it takes. So she recruits her reluctant cousin Ethan and together they trick Ethan’s obnoxious older brother, Tyler, into helping them find the site where the box will open.
But what starts as a fun adventure quickly turns crazy, even dangerous, when Jax, Ethan, and Tyler discover themselves at the center of a mysterious family legacy—and learn that the box was not intended as a gift, but as a call for help. . . .
