The Egypt game is a great book that reflects an enormous change in the main character, April Hall's life. It is perfect for people that read realistic fiction. April, an eleven-year-old girl that is full of imagination and ideas but acts as a show off, comes from Hollywood and moves for a few months to an ordinary community. A pril is experiencing a new neighborhood and finding new friends, although it will be a little difficult because of the ridiculous fake eyelashes and the fuzzy clothes she wears to show off. I think that whenever a new kid in school is being teased, they always react by showing off or acting like a know it all. That's exactly what happened to April when she met Toby and Ken and when they started making fun of her name. If you enjoy adventures then you should like this award winning book The Egypt Game by Zilpha Keatly Snyder who is a specialist in children's books.
