When thirteen-year-old Max Tilt happens upon his great-great-great-grandfather Jules Verne's unfinished, unpublished manuscript, The Lost Treasures, he doesn't realize that he's found the answers to all his problems. And Max has a lot of problems --- his mother is sick, his father is out of work, and his home is about to be foreclosed on.  But when Max and his cousin Alex discover that Verne's last work reveals everything he wrote was fact, not fiction, they realize that the book holds the key to something incredibly valuable. A treasure that can save his house --- and maybe his entire family.

But with his mom’s illness getting worse, Max needs to figure out a way to save her. So Max and his cousin Alex revisit the manuscript, and they find a story of Verne’s impossible recovery from a near-fatal gunshot wound. The book hints that he was only able to do so after collecting magical healing elements that he’d saved from a race around the world.
