When a Social Studies teacher assigns a special project to six high school students, (Richard, Shelly, Nathan, Charles, Morgan and Britt) they receive a lesson that may indeed change lives of many worlds. As they work on the problems set before them they come to realize that the typical real world issues that each student had been dealing with doesn't look all that bad. As the unlikely group of misfits explores the project, they discover strengths that they were completely unaware they had.
For seven whole days they stay in a mysterious book unlocking puzzles, fighting demon-possessed statues, creating bonds with a memorable cast of characters and fighting a villain who controls the powers of the heavens. Mr. Hutchenson, a professor of social studies at St. Cardinals, is a man who plays a large part within this story, but just as the kids have to discover that, so does the reader. These six kids work on finding that strength by not only fighting the enemy, but the enemy within.
This was a very fast read for me. I enjoyed the immediate plunge into the story line. All the characters were really great. I think my favorites were Morgan and Nathan. They all were real though, and you can tell Robin Sanders really dug down deep to develop these characters and their traits.
The action is this book is captivating. I didn't find a dull spot at all. The book flowed so smooth, it was amazing. I think Robin has amazing talent and I'm really excited to see what the future holds for him!
