Waiting on Wednesday is a popular weekly meme that was started by Jill over at Breaking the Spine. It’s where you spotlight a book that you’re really excited for and are eagerly anticipating. So what am I dying for this week? It’s a video game spy adventure called
Game Over, Pete Watson by Joe Schreiber
Publication Date: March 11, 2014
When videogame obsessed Pete Watson discovers his dad is not only a super-spy but has been kidnapped and is now trapped inside a video game, he has to use his super gaming skills and enter the game to rescue him. Will he be able to save his friends and family and the entire world from giant mechanical cockroaches and a massive cyber attack set to take down the world’s network? And if he succeeds, who will save Pete from his massive crush on Callie Midwood? (descriptions taken from Goodreads)
I really have high hopes for this book and I haven’t read (or watched, for that matter) anything amazing about video games in a while and I’m itching to get another great one. (For those of you wondering, yes–Log Horizon is on my list of animes to be watched and mangas to be read. I’m in the process of moving through a few though, so it has to wait). Anyway… I can’t wait for GAME OVER, PETE WATSON and I think that 2014 will be a good year for middle-grade fiction!
