They decide to play it, but after they set it up, Farah’s brother Ahmad jumps into the game. Farah and her friends go in to save him. What will happen to Farah, Alex, and Essie? Will they become prisoners of the game? Find out by reading The Gauntlet!
I liked this book because it was fun to read and I couldn’t wait to find out what would happen next. It was cool how the games were all life-size. If I was in the Gauntlet, I would be excited to do the challenges, but also a little scared. I really recommend this book to people who like board games. I think it is a really good book.

No one comes to the Second World on purpose. The doorway between worlds opens only when least expected. The Raft King is desperate to change that by finding the doorway that will finally take him and the people of Raftworld back home. To do it, he needs Pip, a young boy with an incredible gift—he can speak to fish; and the Raft King is not above kidnapping to get what he wants. Pip’s sister Kinchen, though, is determined to rescue her brother and foil the Raft King’s plans.
I really enjoyed this book. It had great characters, creativity, and amazingly well made connections with the real world and the fictional "second world". The story teaches many lessons and has a plot that is a bit scattered at first but all comes toghether nicely in the end. This is the first book by H.M Bouwman that I have read and I think that this is one of my favorites now. If I was an octopus I would give it all my 8 thumbs up (if octopi had thumbs), but I am only a human and must resort to only two thumbs. I give this book 5 stars.
