Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 6-9 - Hamish is happy about entering Capra Video High School (specializing in video production). In a homework essay, he admits, "Sometimes when I watch a good movie I feel like I belong there more than I belong in my own life." Indeed, his personal life is pretty much an out-and-out flop: he has little confidence and no real friends. Things change when he finds a mysterious note in his locker informing him that he has been selected to fight evil. Skeptical, he is led to a Capra alumnus who presents Hamish with a "Vidz," a DVD that contains a medieval adventure that, when played, sucks him directly into the action as its main character. "Sir Hamish," he soon realizes, is an older, more perfect, sword-wielding version of himself. Hamish gradually learns that he must team up with two other Capra students to complete the fight against the forces of evil in the Vidz, and the trials that cement their alliance prepare them for the parallel battle they face back at Capra: exposing a corrupt school official before he gambles away the school's assets. The first in a series from Australia, this book will attract reluctant readers, but it's not limited to that audience. The action occasionally unfolds in screenplay format and storyboard-style illustrations create a cinematic feel and appeal. - Jeffrey Hastings, Highlander Way Middle School, Howell, MI
