Review by Lee Lynn.
In this book, a girl named Emily moves to San Francisco and leaves all of her friends behind, which is something she's used to, because her family moves to a different state about every year. She meets a boy named James, who's living in the other part of her duplex. Book Scavenger is a website where book lovers can look for and find other books, and it's Emily's favorite pastime, but the creator of it gets attacked in a subway. Will he be okay? Will James and Emily win the competition against the school bully? Who is the school bully, and what is this competition?
I really enjoyed this book because the story feels like it's always moving. There's never a dull moment and I think everyone should read this book, especially those who enjoy a good mystery, or if you don't like impossibilities, saving your character at the most convenient times.

Review by Anna Kapustay.
This book is about an interactive game called Book Scavenger. The game has to do with hiding books and leaving clues for other Book Scavengers to find. When James and Emily play the ultimate game that they think the creator, Garrison Griswold himself, is playing, anything can happen. I love this book because I love books. I like how Emily and her family move around anywhere. (Find out why when you read the book.) I think this book is for 4th and up, unless you really love to read and you're in 3rd. If you love stories and books like the Mr. Lemoncello series, this is the book for you!

Review by Grace Mahoney.
This book is about a girl that moves to a new city. This girl plays a game called Book Scavenger. The game is where someone posts a clue on a special Book Scavenger website. Then, someone else solves the clue. The clue reveals where a book is hidden. Then, someone finds the book, reads it, and hides it again somewhere else. The girl also finds a new friend. They think the game is going to end, so they try to keep it going. On their adventure there are some bad guys in the mix. I loved this book because of the mystery. I recommend this book for 4th grade and up. If you love suspense and adventure, this book is for you. Happy reading!
