This was no accident . . . or was it?
Raleigh Harmon has just won a coveted science contest, with the chance to compete for a $50,000 college scholarship. Great news, right?
Only her goofy aunt drives her to the contest held on Ocracoke Island, North Carolina, and as soon as they arrive, Raleigh realizes she’s way out of her league. The competitors are ruthless brainiacs, and she doesn’t have the slightest clue how to solve this new science challenge.
That suddenly changes when one of her competitors is targeted in a near-death attack—and Raleigh looks like a suspect. After getting involuntarily partnered with a teen marine biologist, Raleigh’s got forty-eight hours to solve the science riddle.
But can she also pick out the bad guy—or girl—before they escape the island? And what if the bad guy is the boy she really likes?
Stone and Sand is the third book in the popular Raleigh Harmon mystery series introducing the girl who will become a forensic geologist and FBI agent—provided she survives the high school years.

"I already love the adult Raleigh Harmon series, but this series about teen Raleigh has me just as hooked. She's an amazing character, and the supporting characters are just as real. I have to read the books in one night, and this one was no exception. I was guessing until the end - and I cared about what happened (a sign of a truly well-written book, in my opinion.)."

"Having read and loved all of Sibella Giorello's books featuring the adult Raleigh Harmon, I was delighted to discover the Raleigh Harmon Mysteries prequel series featuring 15yo Raleigh Harmon. I read all three: Stone and Spark, Stone and Snow and Stone and Sand in the space of two days and they did not disappoint. Rich characters with raw, honest emotions and action-packed story lines drew me in and kept me engaged for hours. These books will satisfy not only young adults, but older adult readers as well."
