Product description

Review

"Christopher Edge, the middle-grade writer who creates brilliant, plotty novels with agglomerations of science and maths, has surpassed himself with his latest story....Edge cleverly pulls in the reluctant novel-readers who may prefer to pore over a walkthrough for a computer game such asThe Legend of Zeldathan to plough through theAdventures of Huckleberry Finn....Perfect for puzzle-hungry beginner horror fans who require lashings of jeopardy." --Alex O'Connell, The Times, Children's Book of the Week

“When Ami arrives at The Escape, an escape room with challenges and puzzles, she is all ready to play whatever games are thrown at her. There’s an abandoned shopping mall full of prehistoric creatures, a creepy old library and a strange chess game. In each setting, Ami and her new friends have to find the answer to a puzzle or quest that allows them to move to the next one. But there’s something strange going on and as the contestants are knocked out one by one, will Ami be the last one standing? This is an intense, rollercoaster of a read, with an almighty twist towards the end that caught me completely off guard. Perfect for readers who like fast-paced, spine-tingling reads.” --Sarah Webb, Irish Independent, Easter Round Up

5.0 out of 5 stars A gripping thriller brilliant for confident 9+ readers
By JB5 on 13 April 2022
As a teacher it's great when find books that I know I can put into the hands of pupils and say, 'Read this - you'll love it!' Escape Room is certainly one of those books for children who love edge-of-your-seat action adventure. The pace never lets up and comes with the most almighty plot twist. Must be in every school library and promoted by teachers in Y5, 6, 7, 8.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exhilarating fun and action
By Teacher Glitter on 20 March 2022
Christopher Edge is the kind of author you know will take you down an unexpected, twisting path. His latest book Escape Room is everything you can expect from him and more. Pacy action, coupled with mystery and creeping fear, is interwoven through this excellent book as we follow Ami and her quest to ‘find the answer and save the world.’ I am sure this will be a big hit with children aged 9+ (upper KS2/KS3.)
