Welcome to Books By My Friends, Betsy! Please tell us about your new book JEWELS OF THE SEA, THE HUNT FOR FLOATING TREASURE.
JH: What’s the blurb for your book?
BFF: Jewels of the Sea… The Hunt for Floating Treasure tells the magical tale of Amy and Bart who go on a treasure hunt with their Grandfather. The second half of the book is packed with real science all about diatoms… nicknamed the ‘jewels of the sea’ because of their breathtaking beauty. Diatoms are also priceless for what they do for life on earth.
