Dogsbody thanks to Kristen at We Be Reading. Once again, I return to the adventures of this author's mind via DWJ in March. Unfortunately, my library did not have many DWJ books in stock, but I did come across one that piqued by interest: The Game.
The Game introduces us to Hayley, a young girl who lives with her grandparents after her parents mysteriously disappear. Grandma is excruciatingly strict, never letting her play with other kids her age, while Grandpa frequently travels or works in his office when home. When Hayley unknowingly does something wrong, she is immediately shipped off to her aunts' house. She quickly discovers her family is much larger than she ever imagined and her family has a secret that she quickly learns through "the game."
The Game is a quick read with a great mix of fantasy and mythology. Walking through the worlds with Hayley and her family was an adventure that I thoroughly enjoyed. I only wished it did not have to end so quickly. I think the only way to solve this problem is to find another DWJ to dive into soon!
What do you recommend for my next DWJ read? Which is your personal favorite?
