by Chris Grabenstein, 290 pages, Grades 6-7

Kyle is an all-time gamer. ┬áKyle’s hero, the famous game-maker Luigi Lemoncello, is the mastermind behind a top-secret project in their town: the new public library. Not only are there books for all ages, but also an IMAX theater, instructional holograms, electromagnetic hover ladders, and more. Through an essay contest, Kyle wins a spot as one of the first twelve kids to see the library during an overnight lock-in filled with fun and games. But the next morning, when the lock-in is supposed to be over, the doors remain locked. Kyle must combine his knowledge of games and his friends’ knowledge of books to escape from the library by using only each other and the clues scattered around the library.

If you enjoy this book, you may also like other fun puzzle mysteries like: The Unknowns, by Benedict Carey, Chasing Vermeer, by Blue Balliett, or The Potato Chip Puzzles, by Eric Berlin.
