… It wasn’t fair that the boys always won. Just once I’d love to score the winning point for the girls’ team. .

By the weekend, I was ready to forget school. No homework, only a few chores, and lots of time for Nintendo, reading, TV and basketball. I planned to practice my hoop shot over and over, until I got it right.

But on Saturday afternoon, my B-ball plans died a quick death. I went out to get the mail and there was a thick envelope addressed to me–from my mission.

Only there was more than paper in the envelope. And the moment the mysterious gold medallion fell into my hand, EVERYTHING changed.

From the Publisher’s Site:

“There’s something familiar about your necklace,” Amanda said, staring at the medallion. “I can’t believe a mission sent you such an odd gift.”

“It IS weird. When I called the mission, the lady said they only mailed papers. She didn’t know anything about a medallion.”

“But someone mailed it to you. Who?”

“I don’t know.” I shrugged. “I wondered at first. Only I kind of forgot about it when I won the movie tickets. But it is really strange.”

“Even stranger.” Amanda’s voice rose with excitement. “I just remembered where I saw a medallion almost identical to yours.”

“You did? Where?”

“At Mission San Rafael.”

“They give away free medallions, too?”

“I don’t think so. The ones I saw were in a glass case of historical stuff. They weren’t for sale. They were on display.”

“Wow. Really?”

“Yeah. They were old and rare antiques.” She squeezed my hands and looked into my face. “Melissa, your medallion is probably worth a million dollars!”
