Kyle Keeley loves games, especially those created by Mr. Lemoncello. He’s less excited by books and the new library that is opening in town even though his town has been without a library for 12 years. In fact, he’s completely blown off the contest that allows 12 twelve-year-olds early access to the library – until he learns that Mr. Lemoncello has put up the funds for the new library.

When Kyle and a couple of friends make the final cut for the preview, he is thrilled. However, their overnight lock in takes an unexpected twist when they learn the next morning they are still locked in to the library. If they can figure out clues hidden all over the library, they will win this unexpected contest. But will they find the escape route the clues lead them to before the deadline?

I’d heard nothing but great things about this book, and the praise was right. The set up took a bit more time than I would have liked, but once the contest started, the book was hard to put down. We are given the clues as Kyle and the other kids are, so we can possibly solve the riddles along with them. Personally, I didn’t spend much time trying and just let the characters solve it. Have I mentioned how bad I am with puzzles like that? Even so, I enjoyed watching how everything unfolded. The characters are fun as well, and make the entire book so enjoyable.

If you’ve missed this book, don’t continue making my mistake. Pick up the book and enjoy the fun escape now.

Loved this book and just know the children in my school will love it.
I think they'll be fighting over who reads it first!

This is a really good book, I would recommend it to anyone that likes "The Candymakers" by Wendy Mass.
