Gamers - Thomas K Carpenter

Gamers - Thomas K Carpenter 

About the book:
Two points for brushing your teeth. Ten points for keeping your room tidy. Seventy-two points for the Bioeconomic Game Design pop quiz on the ride to school in your personal FunCar. Another thirty for making every hurdle in gym class. 

Life is a game, unless you're not the one winning.

When Gabby DeCorte, top student and reality-hacker extraordinaire, learns the truth about LifeGame, she must choose between winning and what she believes in. 


My Review:

I must admit i loved the idea behind the story, and as a whole this is a very good book to read.  This book is definitely aimed towards the gamer, with lots of gamer language. The character of Gabby is well rounded and lovable, although she does have her personality traits. I found that i really wanted to get to know more about her as i was going through the book. I loved the frags they were my favorite part of the book, with their lovable charm and different characters i can't wait to see where they go in the next book.  The story as a whole was well written and engaging, with everything that a reader needs to be catapulted into Gabby's world. As a whole i think this book will definitely appeal to the young adult market especially those with a gamer background. If you are looking for something a bit different to read here it is it is well worth checking out. I can't wait to see where the next book in the series is going to go so all credit goes to the author for making me want to read more of this story.
