    When I saw this book it kind of reminded me of R.L Stine or Mary Downing Hahn so I thought I would like this But, after reading the first awkwardly worded paragraph, what came next was 149 pages of pure boredom Four teenagers are trapped in a stranger s house during a flood and what was suppose to be a suspenseful story quickly became a story about what did Sam see in the back room that scared him so much Of course everyone is to scared to look in the room and talking about it was about all When I saw this book it kind of reminded me of R.L Stine or Mary Downing Hahn so I thought I would like this But, after reading the first awkwardly worded paragraph, what came next was 149 pages of pure boredom Four teenagers are trapped in a stranger s house during a flood and what was suppose to be a suspenseful story quickly became a story about what did Sam see in the back room that scared him so much Of course everyone is to scared to look in the room and talking about it was about all these characters did Half way through the book I wanted to scream For the sake of all humanity, someone please go look in that room

    Bland but unobjectionable mild suspense story about four teens who stop to call AAA and end up trapped by a flood in a house with a psycho stage magician Nothing graphic or too scary.Recommended for kids who want to convince their parents to let them have cell phones.

    I was actually surprised at how much I liked this book When I picked it up, it looked like a book a kid in 5th grade would read, but I figured, the story line sounds interesting, so why not try it out, right I got bored after the first 20 pages, but, as my OCD kicks in, I told myself I needed to finish the book because I had already started it So i continued reading and the mystery started and the clues began to appear and I wanted to know what, or who, was in that house, tormenting Lisa, Bo, I was actually surprised at how much I liked this book When I picked it up, it looked like a book a kid in 5th grade would read, but I figured, the story line sounds interesting, so why not try it out, right I got bored after the first 20 pages, but, as my OCD kicks in, I told myself I needed to finish the book because I had already started it So i continued reading and the mystery started and the clues began to appear and I wanted to know what, or who, was in that house, tormenting Lisa, Bo, Julian, and Teena It would ve drove me crazy if I hadn t found out I did find it annoying how slow the clues came along and how weird it was that the teenagers didn t want to stay outside That would have been my first reaction I am NOT staying in some strangers house and the people who invited me to stay inside, it wasn t even their house Really That s just weird and it s not right But I did like the fact that Chamberlain used magic to give his clues That was brilliant I also liked the fact that the author brushed on the teenager s lives and how they are connected with how their parents want a certain career for them even though that s not what they want I thought that was a little interesting Over all, it was a great book, a quik read, which I always like, and I definitely recommend Warning though, there are grammar spelling issues that come along with it, so BEWARE That was the one thing that bothered me about this book, and that says something

    Bo, Teena, Julian, and Lisa are four teens who would never be together if it weren t for a project for school Things only get worse for them when Bo s car breaks down and they are forced to pull into an old home to use a phone for help They soon find that they are alone in the house waiting for the auto club, but a storm outside may delay their rescue Soon odd things start happening in the house, things that are making the four teens realize they need to help each other and stick together to Bo, Teena, Julian, and Lisa are four teens who would never be together if it weren t for a project for school Things only get worse for them when Bo s car breaks down and they are forced to pull into an old home to use a phone for help They soon find that they are alone in the house waiting for the auto club, but a storm outside may delay their rescue Soon odd things start happening in the house, things that are making the four teens realize they need to help each other and stick together to make it to the rescue from the auto club Lisa discovers things in the house that shouldn t be scary, but are just down right terrifying when the setting is so dark and dreary All the teens want is to go home, preferably soon and evenpreferably alive Someone seems to be in this spooky house, but they never really show themselves Who is in the house and do they mean the teens harm What about the little old lady that owns this house Is she really stuck in town because of the weather or did she come home and come to some harm by the mysterious someone in her home Is the someone in the home a hitchhiker or are they someonemysterious than that. other worldly This book had me from the first word on the first page all the way to the last word on the last page I was absolutely sucked into this book and story This author absolutely nailed the bullseye in the writing and flow of this book I was so into this book by the wonderful descriptions given that I found myself jumpy as I read because of how focused I was on what was going on in the book A noise would happen in my own home as I was reading and I jumped thinking I was in the story The characters were so realistic and fun and so well developed that I felt they were real people that I knew of They all were so different, yet all so much alike I loved the bonds they started to form as the book progressed This was a bit different than most mystery books I ve read, but in a great way It wasn t this so and so was murdered and now we must find who done it it was a what is happening here and what is really going on in this house and with these teens mystery I loved every minute of it Nice change of pace in my reading The ending was a bit of a disappointment to me, as it left some things unanswered, but all in all my love of the rest of the book outweighed the way things ended.If you like mysteries with a twist, this is the book for you This is a great book for young adults and adults and is a great easy breezy read I highly recommend this book 5 5 Stars

    The only reason I read A Deadly Game of Magic by Joan Lowery Nixon is because it was free Granted, most of the books I read are free from the library But I was actually able to take this book on an overseas flight.I read other Joan Lowery Nixon books as a teenager and I enjoyed them Either I had no taste in books at the time or Deadly Game is just a stinker Since Lowery Nixon is an Edgar Award winner, I hope it s the latter In the book, four high school students are trapped in a rainstorm The only reason I read A Deadly Game of Magic by Joan Lowery Nixon is because it was free Granted, most of the books I read are free from the library But I was actually able to take this book on an overseas flight.I read other Joan Lowery Nixon books as a teenager and I enjoyed them Either I had no taste in books at the time or Deadly Game is just a stinker Since Lowery Nixon is an Edgar Award winner, I hope it s the latter In the book, four high school students are trapped in a rainstorm Although the plot about a demented magician is unbelievable, the real problem with the book is the dialogue.The teenagers simply do not sound like teenagers Teena, in particular, spouts platitudes and clich s like a middle aged woman You got guilt all over your face like jam and Looking at you is like staring at a window with the shade pulled down are my favorites I have never heard anyone talk this way especially not a teenager.The book s romantic scenes are equally as uncomfortable Lisa, the narrator, describes her crush, saying, I watched him leave the room, his long, slender body moving easily, and I wanted to follow him, to touch him Is this really how teenage girls think Deadly Game is a fast and harmless read But with so many other books out there, it is also a waste of time
