Twelve-year-old Kyle gets to stay overnight in the new town library, designed by his hero (the famous gamemaker Luigi Lemoncello), with other students but finds that come morning he must work with friends to solve puzzles in order to escape.
Kyle Keeley loves, loves, LOVES games. But books? Uh…not so much. Still, he is excited when he wins a chance to be in an overnight lock-in at his town’s brand new library because it has been designed by the world’s most famous game maker. Once he is there, he is even MORE excited to accept a challenge to win his way out of the library by playing a game designed by that same person. What is not so exciting is the realization that most of the clues he needs to solve to win the game are based on his knowledge of…books! Everything he needs to win his escape from the library is IN the library, and this is the first library he’s ever been in.
