Product Description

Charlie Lewis goes on a roller coaster ride of risk, math, and gaming in this middle grade novel that parallels the "New York Times "bestselling "Bringing Down the House," which inspired the movie "21 "with Kevin Spacey. Charlie Lewis is a nerd. All he s ever been good at is math and he s "really" good at math. So good that he s recruited by a group of kids determined to game the system at the biggest theme park in the world and win the grand prize. Soon Charlie is caught up in the excitement and thrill of using his math skills for awesomeness but what s at stake may be more than he s willing to risk. How far will Charlie go for a chance at the ultimate reward?"

Amazon.com: HASH(0x97f9bf00) out of 5 stars 8 reviews
HASH(0x97fa1a44) out of 5 stars A wonderful sense of place and a terrific YA novel with great pace! 24 Dec. 2015
By Daniel T. Barkowitz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I think I might be the perfect target audience for this book, although I am (technically) an adult... First, I am a former Massachusetts resident who lived in the vicinity of Wellesley (one of the locations and where the protagonist's school is located). Second, I am a former MIT staff member and know people just like those portrayed in the story with MIT connections (like the parents who are professors at MIT). And finally, I am Walt Disney World obsessed.

Although the main action of this wonderfully compelling and readable YA novel concerns a place called Incredo Land located just outside of Tampa, don't let this confuse you. Incredo Land is a thinly disguised version of Walt Disney World (with references to history and locations which an astute reader will surely get). The plot (described above) concerns a plan to win a prize in a "random" drawing at Incredo Land, and the various pathways and byways of the story will keep you guessing.

But for those of you who like me have a knowledge of these three locations (Wellesley, Massachusetts, MIT (and its Infinite Corridor) and Walt Disney World) there is a lot more in store for you. It is clear that Mr. Mezrich has spent a fair amount of time in each place and his richly drawn and deftly plotted novel will do more than keep you guessing; it will also give you the sense of each place so accurate that the book reads like a documentary story rather than a novel.

While I understand the complaints of the 1 star viewer about Mr. Mezrich's other work (Bringing Down the House), I have read both and do not see the harm or repackaging of story that this reviewer complains about. In fact, I read the intentional similarities of titles (Bringing Down the House / Mouse) as its own subtle wink at the fundamental connections of story (a group of MIT nerds try to bring down Vegas casinos vs. a group of middle school students trying to bring down Walt Disney World... I mean, Incredo Land). Other than this surface similarity, the two stories are in fact very different. You can read them both and enjoy each one of them as unique and fascinating reads.

Now, if I could only get my hands on a lifetime ticket to Incredo Land...

HASH(0x983d7984) out of 5 stars Fun read for me and students. 28 Aug. 2014
By Robin Kahn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I'll be using this book in my middle school classrooms as a way to bridge math and literature. I also teach religion and will use a few sections to teach some bible. I also will use th book as a way to open some conversations about bullying, honesty, cheating.
