    • Bone Deep by Gina McMurchy-Barber is a middle grade novel, and the third book in the Peggy Henderson adventure series. I have not read the previous books, and while I suspect they offer a broader knowledge of the characters it does not seem absolutely necessary to read the series in order.When archaeologists discover a two-hundred-year-old shipwreck, Peggy Henderson decides she’ll do whatever it takes to take part in the expedition. But first she needs to convince her mom to let her go, and to [...]


    • Bone Deep is the third in the Peggy Henderson adventure series by Gina McMurchy-Barber. Peggy is an enquiring but disrespectful 12 year old who is passionate about archaeology. In this novel, she wangles her way into scuba diving lessons in order to be taken on as crew to help discover a 200 year old shipwreck. Along the way, however, her determination to live her passion gets in the way of the truth. Her lying eventually lands her in trouble. As in earlier books there is a second story line (my [...]


    • i recieved a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review find more of this review and other reviews on my blog at thenerdyprincessbookreviews.bl I didn’t think I would like this book because of all the history and reading a journal of a captain whose boat sunk. But the author kept the book entertaining and there was always something going on. Peggy is your average 13 year old girl. I felt bad for her and hanging out with her Aunt B, but also what routing for her to ge [...]


    • 'Bone Deep' is an interesting adventure story geared for early teens. Peggy, an aspiring archaeologist, learns that one can become a deep water archaeologist and immediately signs up for Scuba lessons! Throughout the book Peggy pushes back on authority, but also discovers there can be consequences to pushing back. On the whole Peggy is portrayed as a typical thirteen-year old who is inquisitive, eager to learn, and not too keen on working! As an adult reader, I'm a little hit-and-miss on Peggy's [...]


    • Awesome book. So refreshing and reminiscent of Nancy Drew.I enjoyed this book much more than I expected. It's not only a very unique story, focused on marine archaeology and a determined young lady.I didn't like how she continued to lie instead of coming clean, but at the end that was resolved in a way that made sense. Peggy is a whirlwind, head strong, determined and a breath of fresh air. The writing is fast paced, striking a good balance between diving, ship wrecks, an old captain's log and p [...]


    • Started to read the book and realized it was geared to a younger audience so I had my teen-aged daughter read it and give me her opinion. She said that she really enjoyed the book, especially when Peggy was learning to scuba dive. She also like how Peggy and Aunt Beatrix got along - not.Highly recommended!


    • I got this book in a GoodReads giveaway and I'm so happy I did because it was great! This is a perfect book for intermediate students and it would be great for teachers to use in the classroom! It has a great adventure story for reluctant readers and exciting non-fiction components that can be expanded on and researched further. Great book!!!
