Here’s the description of the graphic novel from the publisher:

“A group of friends go on a mission in the Florida Keys to uncover a lost treasure and end up getting more than they bargained for.

“What happens when a bunch of teens get together at the Florida Keys for an unforgettable summer of Treasure hunting?

“After obsessing over a history lesson at school, Joshua enlists his two best friends to travel to the Florida Keys for the summer to hunt for the treasure of Our Lady of Atocha, a Spanish treasure galleon and the most widely known vessel of a fleet of ships that sank in a hurricane off the Florida Keys in 1622. Staying up, sneaking out, and searching for a legendary buried treasure is just the beginning of the summer of their lives!”

Here’s Orlando’s bio:
