Channing O'Banning and the Turquoise Trail

Channing's best friends (and super nerds) Cooper and Maddy are really into their studies on the American Southwest, but Chan can't see what a bunch of boring rocks and dusty deserts have to do with her. In this story, she learns a new perspective on history, friendship, and the importance of responsibility.
