Chris Grabenstein, Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library. Yearling, 2014.
I've just finished a book called Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library. It's about a boy named Kyle, who is basically a nobody next to his two brothers, a brainiac and a Jock. Then he wins a essay contest for the first library card to the new library, which was designed by Mr. Lemoncello, the legendary game maker. With the library card comes the prize of a lock-in at the new library. The lock-in becomes too literal when they become part of a contest to get out of the library. Kyle heads a team, team Kyle, and his arch-rival, Charles Chilington, heads team Charles. The two teams battle until one manages to escape and win the prize.
I completely loved this book. It totally hooks you, and after you read one chapter you cannot stop.
If you like mysteries or board games, then I would recommend this book for you. Chris Grabenstein wrote two other books, The Island Of Dr. Libris and the sequel to Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library, Mr. Lemoncello's Library Olympics, which I am reading and will finish soon.
