In Gamers, life is a game.
Gabby DeCorte is a good student. In LifeGame, she gets points for brushing her teeth, keeping her room clean, and taking pop quizzes. She is told that earning more points will help her to get the best jobs.
That's a complete lie.
The students with less points slowly disappear. As Gabby learns the truth, she must decide whether winning is worthwhile anymore. What will Gabby do? Read Gamers to find out!
I enjoyed this book from beginning to end. When I began reading it, I was reminded of the Pretties series by Scott Westerfeld. I loved the brave characters! I thought Gabby was a strong protagonist in spite of her flaws. The plot was engaging and well-paced.
I was not familiar with some of the gaming terms such as the term "rebuff." The use of gaming terminology caused me a bit of confusion. Additionally, since the story was based on a team aspect, I would have liked to know more about Mouse and Frags. However, I have a strong feeling I will get that opportunity in the next book.
I appreciated that the concept of this book was highly original. I would recommend this book to fantasy lovers and students ages 12 and up.
