The basic premise is that a girl jumps into a video game world set around the time of Knights and castles and becomes the champion of the region. In this story she get called to the realm to provide emotional and psychological strength to the ruler. However thing unravel quickly leading her to be needed in her role of champion.
This was a quick read for me and is perfect for the younger reader, upper elementary school and middle school readers. The story also talks about standing up for those who cannot or will not stand up for themselves and putting yourself out there to take a chance. I love the message and the great story that presents it.
I give this book 4 out of 5 clouds.
The characters are interesting and three-dimensional, in particular Jaycee. She’s very authentic, a good representation of middle school girls, what they care about, what they don’t care about, and what matters to them. Yet at the same time she’s not generic, but special, creative and imaginative, and also quite brave.
I particularly liked the scenes in Mallory, the whole storyline with the missing envoy. The plot worked, in Mallory as well as in the regular world, and you soon feel for these characters, and want them to succeed. The dialogue is spot-on, and sounds very realistic, especially Jaycee’s dialogue. The book also has an appropriate amount of humor, which kids will like too.
It’s an imaginative, well-plotted adventure that I’d recommend to middle graders and young teens. And occassionally, an adult who enjoys middle grade books (like me, for example). I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
