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.

      You might if you like Middle grade books, puzzle games and treasure hunts. It’s about a kid who loves to play the puzzle exit games on his computer and then has to solve those puzzles in real life to find a treasure and there is a nasty man who wants it too. 🙂 I totally flew through it and started it last night before bed and finished it today. That doesn’t happen to me often…lol.

    So would it be suitable for my 11 yr old granddaughter, do you think? We’ve stalled on the book I’m reading her at present:(…

      Oh yes, I think it would be suitable for her especially if she likes treasure hunt type read. They do get in a little danger towards the end but that is all part of the adventure type books so nothing to frightening. It would keep her on the edge of her seats wanting to know if they escape. I found it to be a real quick read. No bad words or anything.
