Walking On Gold is an amazing book, about a young girl who goes off to hunt for treasure. It is written perfectly, and has a brilliant meaning of hope, courage and faith.
Effie, 12 years old, has to move house to an island where her mum grew up. There, she discovers that a vast variety of treasure is stored in an unknown hiding place; the ground. As Effie searches for her beloved treasure, she meets and finds out about loads of other characters, and soon the story of Effie's hunt is unravelled.
The best parts are specifically when she hunts for the treasure; it is so tense when she is trying to dig up things, and it makes the reader want to turn the page. There are lots of cliff-hangers leaving you gripping onto the story. There is a certain scene where Effie has a fall, inside a tunnel, leaving her stranded with the tide coming in quick. This part is especially good because you never know if she is going to get out or not. It makes you wonder what her decisions will be and how she will go about them.
It is also very tense when her cousin Luke (who she bonded with very closely, and made great friend with) has a terrible accident and has to go to hospital. It is interesting to see how Effie copes with this big ordeal and she handles it very well.
This book is the perfect example of a very well-written book, and a very talented author. I give this book 4/5 stars.
