[An] affectionate tribute to a richly diverse, close-knit Brooklyn neighborhood and its multigenerational residents.” —Publishers Weekly

PRAISE FOR CLICK HERE TO START


A School Library Guild selection 
An Amazon Best Books of the Month Selection


“In this clever debut, Markell takes readers on a clue-filled adventure…[and] maintains an energetic, entertaining balance of character-driven narrative and tricky challenges.” —Publishers Weekly

Highly entertaining…a well-paced read with fully realized and likable characters…[and] should have strong appeal to gamers, fans of video game-based stories, and reluctant readers.” —SLJ

“This book will appeal to a wide audience. Readers who enjoyed Schreiber’s Game Over, Pete Watson will enjoy the video game component; fans of Fitzgerald’s Under the Egg will enjoy reading more about the Monuments Men; detective story aficionados will revel in the inclusion of The Maltese Falcon story. This is a great book to hand to just about any middle grade reader.” —YA Books Central

“An epic adventure…for young fans of Stranger Things.” —SLJ

“An exciting new adventure exploring friendship…[with] often humorous commentary on social issues. —Booklist

“Both funny and heartfelt…[it’s] a story that has as much to offer diehard fans as it does newcomers to fantasy role-playing.” —The Bulletin
