What if playing video games was prepping you to solve an incredible real-world puzzle and locate a priceless treasure?
Twelve-year-old Ted Gerson has spent most of his summer playing video games. So when his great- uncle dies and bequeaths him all the so-called treasure in his overstuffed junk shop of an apartment, Ted explores it like it’s another level to beat. And to his shock, he finds that eccentric Great-Uncle Ted actually has set the place up like a real-life escape-the-room game!
Using his specially honed skills, Ted sets off to win the greatest game he’s ever played, with help from his friends Caleb and Isabel. Together they discover that Uncle Ted’s “treasure” might be exactly that—real gold and jewels found by a Japanese American unit that served in World War II. With each puzzle Ted and his friends solve, they get closer to unraveling the mystery—but someone dangerous is hot on their heels, and he’s not about to let them get away with the fortune.
As a gamer so far this has been a really fun read!
My mom is shaking, she’s so mad. “Is this what you call clean?” she fumes. “I took time off from work, brought those men here, and this is what __”
“Mom!” I yell. “Are you serious? Do you think this is how we left the place?”
“Mrs. Gerson,” Isabel says calmly. “There has been a breakin. We need to call the police.”
This is at 31% in to the eARC and exactly were I am in the book. Someone was looking for something and left the place in a mess. Makes things even more interesting!
That is my teaser for today. Do you have a tease for me? Leave a link and I will check it out.
