Mr. Lemoncello, an eccentric game maker, invites 12 students to the new library's grand opening lock-in, where they each get a shot at the prize of a lifetime. Kidzworld has the book review of Escape From Mr. Lemoncello's Library by Chris Grabenstein.

The Contest

For 12 years, the town of Alexandriaville hasn't had a library. So when the grand new public library opens its doors, the library's eccentric sponser - famous game maker Mr. Lemoncello - decides to hold a competition. He invites 12 kids age 12 to experience a lock-in before the library's grand opening. But this isn't just any lock-in. The kids will get the chance to participate in the ultimate game: they must find the way out of the library - a different route from the way they came in. And the prize? The chance to star in a commercial for one of Mr. Lemoncello's games!

Team Kyle versus Charles Chiltington

Kyle Keeley and his classmates participate in a series of challenges during their quest to solve the riddle that will lead them to the hidden exit. During his two-night stay, he teams up with his best friend Akimi and a few other kids from school. After all two - or, in Kyle's case, five - heads are better than one! The only remaining boy who doesn't join his team is Charles Chiltington, whose powerful family name gives him the confidence to play the game solo. Like he says, Chiltington's never lose. But at a game like this, will Charles even have a shot? 

The Bottom Line

Chris Grabenstein, author of The Haunted Mystery series, delivers a quirky, fast-paced and light-hearted mystery. In Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library, readers can observe the clues along with the characters and challenge themselves to solve the rebus riddles before the characters do.

I'm sorry, but there's one thing I want to ask you, do you think it's right for a 1 year old to have a boyfriend? I'm sure most of us would say no. This is certainly similar for people younger than 16, 17 or 18, to have a boyfriend. There is truly a correct age based on the way you find yourself to be mature enough, usually 16-18 years old.  Based on when I was young, though, I had a bunch of friends who had boyfriends when we were in Gr 3. Surprising? Well, not really. It's usually just a minor romantic interest and eventually, you'll move on from your boyfriend because of boredom or old variety. Suffice to say, it's wrong to have a boyfriend at a young age, such as ten because most of us, at that age, were still immature enough to handle the responsibility of having the opposite gender as a romantic interest. This is my perspective, if you cannot handle it, don't ask for it.

I upgraded from 7. I really enjoy the start menu. The look and feel is nice. I like the apps available. Photos is a lot like Apple's iPhoto. I'm not too keen on it, but I'm glad the option to browse files is still readily there, and photos can be opened with other programs instead. Mail is mail. I prefer the more standard layout of my iCloud mail though. The multiple desktops, microsoft account login, notifications, and readily available search bar are great features. Microsoft Edge needs more help than internet explorer did. I've had to end a lot of tasks because it seems to run more in the background, but that's fine.  Overall it's been worth the upgrade.
