Every kid's dream is to be named Most Valuable Player. But how many ever dream that the game is a race around the world (no flying allowed) in just 40 days? That's the challenge Adam Story faces in the Great Global Game. As the player for the *Magellan Voyage Project, he competes against 23 other players for a four-million-dollar prize! Of course the trackers in red sweat suits and hoodies with their blowguns and sleeping darts don't make things easy. Nor does the nefarious Baron von Sheepsbottom, who will stop at nothing to stop Adam. But it's time to go — the game's afoot!
This was a good book because it’s very descriptive and you sort of learn with the main character. I wouldn’t change anything about this book! Yes, I would recommend this for a middle schooler if you were into travel/adventure books because that’s what this is all about.
