Now that Tommy knows the full impact of the cursed Gasparilla coin, he plans to return it and end the curse forever. But he soon realizes that the coin is missing, and his troubles begin anew! In Bruce Rougraff’s third young adult novel, the finale of the Gasparilla Curse Trilogy, it takes the help of his brothers, his sister, and their neighbor Ed to try to recover it. Finding the coin becomes more of an adventure than Tommy or his family anticipates. They encounter ruthless criminals, modern-day pirates, swindlers, and skeptics who stand in Tommy’s way at every turn. To add to their troubles, the world has changed since he first met Captain Gasparilla. Tommy knows where the coin must be buried, but now it is impossible to return it as he was instructed. This unforgettable cast of characters must survive hurricanes, overwhelming odds, and—more than anything—self-doubt, to end the Gasparilla Curse once and for all. Does Tommy have the motivation it takes to overcome all these obstacles, or will his family be cursed forever?

About the Series

In The Gasparilla Curse series, 10-year-old Tommy uncovers an ancient, cursed coin from the mythical pirate Jose Gasparilla, who has threatened him and his family. In the first book Doubloon!, Tommy digs up the coin while on the beach with his family on vacation and begins searching for the truth and the meaning of its treasure.  In book 2, Tarpon!, Tommy returns to Florida to go fishing with his family.  He is captured and tortured by Jose Gasparilla. Gasparilla is willing to let Tommy go home and end the curse, but only if he returns the ancient pirate coin to a buried treasure chest.  In book 3, Hurricane!, the coin goes missing, and it becomes a race to unravel a mystery of the curse of many generations against time and nature’s wrath.  Tommy and his family must recover the pirate coin, return it to its rightful place, and hope to be free of the curse forever.
