"Jed, the Forgotten Egyptian Prince," by Jeanette Dixon takes the reader along with a family of archeologists who travel to Egypt to look for the unfound tombs of the ancient rulers.
In this family is a young man "Jed" who has been experiencing difficulty in school and has "self-esteem" issues and his parents feel that including him in their research will help him to better understand himself and others.
The book is very well-written and I found the archaeological information and the on-going tomb and search for ancient remains very interesting. I especially loved the ending and hope this writer is planning a sequel.
I'm certain that ages thirteen and up will also enjoy this writer's work.
Would I recommend this to others? YES!
