Summary from Goodreads:

Nefertari “Terry” Hughes has three rules for surviving high school:

#1 Don’t attract attention.
#2 Don’t get involved.
#3 Don’t make trouble.

A year after the accident that left her crippled and took her mother’s life, sixteen-year-old Terry just wants to keep her head down and survive her new high school. When she catches the eye of cute basketball star Zach — who happens to be the boyfriend of mean girl Allison — all hopes of flying under the radar are gone.

She is thrust even further in the spotlight when Fraser, the editor of the school newspaper, learns Mr. Hughes is the renowned archaeologist overseeing the new Egyptian display at the museum, which is rumoured to include Cleopatra’s sarcophagus. Fraser’s research leads to the fifty-year-old mystery of a girl who vanished while on a school trip to to the museum along with an artifact that may be Cleopatra’s asp.

When Mr. Hughes falls into a coma and his co-worker claims it’s the curse of Cleopatra, the stakes become too high for Terry to ignore. Terry must work with Fraser and her new candy loving friend Maude to find out what happened fifty years ago in hopes of saving her father before time runs out.

Rated T - Teen 13 and up: May contain violence, crude humour, suggestive themes and/or strong language.

My Review:

ASP Ascension is about a sixteen year old girl Terry Hughes. Her name is actually Nefertari but don’t tell anyone because Terry really hates being called by her real name. Poor Terry lost her mother about a year ago in an accident while they were looking for Cleopatra’s sarcophagus. Her mother spent her whole life nearly looking for Cleopatra’s sarcophagus and died for it. Terry loved her mother very much and misses her every single day. Terry’s mom and dad is archaeologist and so she grew up with the love of ancient Egypt. Terry knows more about ancient Egypt than anyone in her new school.

Terry doesn’t want to go to a brick and mortar school she wants to stay home and take online classes. But her dad insist that she go to school and be with other kids her own age and he knows she just needs to be with people more than ever right now especially since the anniversary of her mother’s death is so close. Terry tries her best to stay invisible at school but it is impossible when you are the daughter of a famous archaeologist who is in town working at the museum setting everything up for an unveiling of Cleopatra’s sarcophagus. But Terry does meet a very good person a girl Maude who becomes her best friend. She also has the opportunity of meeting and being partners with the school jock Zach. But alias he has a girlfriend the mean girl of the school Allison.

Allison is very popular and has her groupies who follow her around all day and help her to beat up other girls in the bathroom which is very old school as they say. If it has been done before then you can bet your bottom dollar Allison has done it too when it comes to her bathroom secessions or even out of the bathroom as well. Allison is one girl you want to try and avoid at all cost.

When Terry’s dad ends up in a coma one night while working late at the museum; Terry is the only one who can save him. A woman her dad works with tells Terry that her dad is in a coma because of the curse of Cleopatra and Terry is the only one who can break it. Terry must solve a fifty year old case of Cleopatra’s missing ASP. If she finds the ASP then she can break the curse and her dad will be ok. Can she find the missing ASP before time runs out? Will she lose her dad only a year after losing her mother? Will her and her new friends save her father?

When I first signed up to do this tour I didn’t think I wanted to read ASP Ascension. Well it was more like I didn’t have time but you know it is quite amazing how you can find the time when you really want to read something. After checking the book out further by reading the preview on Goodreads I was like I got to read this book. So I set out to find that little bit of extra time. How you say? Well by reading the books on my tbr list at the time faster. And how did I do that? By putting more time in to my reading but I actually think I just got lucky and had some really good books that read faster than some. You know what I mean?

I am really glad that I check ASP Ascension out further before throwing it to the side. I plan on do this a lot more in the future. Thanks Goodreads for having a preview of the book and thanks to the author B.R. Myers and YA Bound Book Tours for giving me this opportunity to read ASP Ascension and I can’t wait to read more of Nefertari Hughes Mystery’s in the future.

I highly recommend ASP Ascension to anyone who loves a good mystery and have a love for ancient Egypt. Or maybe just Cleopatra and Mark Anthony.
