Rating: ★★★★☆

MY OPINION OF THIS BOOK IS THAT IS WAS GOOD BECAUSE SOME PARTS OF THE BOOK WERE REALLY INTERESTING, THAT YOU COULD JUST FEEL YOU WERE IN THE BOOK. OTHER PARTS OF THE BOOK WERE NOT AS INTERESTING. THE EGYPT GAME TAKES PLACE IN EGYPT. I WOULD DEFINITLY RECOMEND THIS BOOK TO ANYONE WHO LOVES LEARNING ABOUT ANCIENT EGYPT AND ITS HYSTORY LIKE ME FOR EXAMPLE!
THE EGYPT GAME WAS ABOUT SIX KIDS WHO DISCOVER THE EGYPT GAME AND GO THROUGH LOTS OF ADVENTURES AND CRAXY THINGS.THE MAIN CHARACTERS ARE KEN,TOBY,APRIL,MARSHAL.MELANIS,
ELIZABETH. KEN WAS THE SECOND BOY WHO JOINED THE EGYPT GAME , APRIL WAS THE GIRL WJO LIVED WITH HER GRANDMOTHER IN CASA ROSADA AND MARSHAL WAS THE LITTLE BROTHER OF MELANIE WHO TOOK CARE OF SECURITY,MELANIE WASAPRILS BEST FRIEND AND TOBY WAS THE FOLLOWER OF KEN AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST ELIZABETH, SHE WAS APRILS AND MELANIES FRIEND AND WAS A NEW BEE TO THE EGYPT GAME .
