A dangerous rally race... and archaeology?!

Clementine Hetherington and her robot brother, Digory, have run away from the orphanage they've been living in since their parents died. Clem and Dig want to follow in their famous archaeologist mother's footsteps, but no one will take them seriously. Their chance arrives when a man from their past saves Digory's life, and to repay the debt they enter a multiday rally race... to recover stolen artifacts! Clem and Dig hope to win so they can give the artifacts to a museum, but their opponents want to sell them on the black market. The Ironwood Race has no rules, and Clem and Dig might be in over their heads!

An exciting graphic novel cross between Indiana Jones and Mad Max, starring a teen girl and her robotic younger "brother." There is no lack of action and adrenaline, with empowered young characters and a mystery about the disappearance of their parents. I often found the details of the racing scenes a bit hard to follow and wanted a bit more depth to the story, though the gist was always clear for both. This is a fun story.
