I remember reading this all the way back in sixth grade for English class. It was a pretty good book, filled with mystery, some action, and of course, a little bit of Egypt for the Egypt game. From what I remember, Aprils mom is an actress and doesn't really care about her and she moves in with her grandma. Melanie and her little brother Marshall live in the same apartment, and April being lonely, decides to make up a game involving elements of Egypt. It was all make believe and pretend until some crazy person is out murdering people, and suddenly the game is scary. They end up finding the bad guy so all ends well. This book stuck with me for five years, which is a good sign because I have read hundreds of books since then . I highly highly recommend this book to young readers.
