Unique Characters

In ON A LARP, Sid is known to be a hacker after a past school prank, and she's a good one at that. When she's enlisted to help the detectives solve a murder, the geeky side of her comes out. She thinks the murder happened while on a LARP.

For those who don't know, LARP is a live action role playing game. They have to find the game master (creator of the game) before their questions can be answered. Sid soon finds herself draw into a LARP and the danger becomes more real the closer she gets to an answer.

ON A LARP is full of mystery and nerdy-ness. At times, it felt like the main character was ranting and it slowed the pace of the story so it was a little difficult to get into at first. But once it picked up, it draws you in. I loved Sid's quirky and unique character and I loved the incorporation of LARP because you don't see it very often in YA books.


Final Verdict: I recommend this to fans of murder mysteries, cosplay, and hacking.
