The Egypt Game, by Zilpha Keatley Snyder, is the story of a unique game started by two girls...Melanie Ross and April Hall, when they discover that they have one thing in common...a fascination for all things Egyptian. So, along with Melanie's little brother, they set up their own version of Ancient Egypt in an old store yard. They are soon joined by their new neighbor, Elizabeth, and two boys who think the girls' game is kind of cool.
But soon, the six young "Egyptians" realize that their game may have gone too far. Strange things are starting to happen to the players. Have they stirred up the ancient gods of Egypt, or, even worse, is somebody stalking them...someone with malicious intent?
This book was absolutely impossible to put down!!! I was hooked until the very end. The author is great at building up suspense and leaving her readers hanging. I found it hard not to beg my mom to run to the bookstore and buy the next book, The Gypsy Game!
I know I haven't rated books in a long time, but this one was probably a 5 out of 5.
