As if High School was not nightmareish enough, now let's put you in a game. No you do not get to know the rules, or who else is playing, or even what exactly losing means. Yep, sounds entertaining. For Me, and You. Not so much for the players. This book does not make little adults of sixteen year old kids, it does show how a sixteen year old may tackle a problem totally unlike a 40 year old, even the same person 26 years later (did I do that math right?). I totally enjoyed the slow draw out of the details.
I had read parts one and two before, but I like this format better, although I see why in the YA category it may make more sense to "serialize" the novel. Absolutely delightful, lighter hearted (meaning NO heavy romance) reading. Just what I needed.
