What happens when a billionaire game maker creates a public library? He challenges students to escape the library through a series of puzzles and riddles, like a game. Kyle Keeley loves board games and video games. After he is grounded and not allowed to play video games, he learns that there is a contest to get early access to the new public library built after the old one was destroyed 12 years ago. If victory is his, he plans to play video games his whole visit. He must write an essay, and 12 12 year olds will be chosen. He is chosen along with Miguel Fernandez, Akimi Hughes, Andrew Peckleman, Bridgette Wadge, Sierra Russell, Sean Keegan, Haley Daley, Rose Vermette, Kayla Corson, and Charles Chiltington. Once they enter, they eventually find out that this is no ordinary visit. In fact, this is a game to exit the library. This is a change of plans, and Kyle is determined to win. The winner will be famous and also recieve lots of money. Many contestants decide to team up, while some use others. There are many ways to become disqualified. Sometimes players get penalties for incorrectly solving a puzzle. THis book was amazing! Chris Grabenstein really knows how to keep you hooked to the plot and on the edge of the seat. Your heart is beating because you don’t know how the challenge will end. Will the character solve the puzzle, or get disqualified? The author also lets you know what every player is doing. They may have a piece of the puzzle that someone else needs. While reading this book, I was wondering why I did not pick this book up earlier. The puzzles and clues are complex, but not impossible. I enjoyed playing along. I cannot wait to read the sequel. THis is definitely a 5 star book. A great for grades 3 or 4 and above.
