Outcasts: The Game

(1 reviews with an average rating of 5 out of 5)

Publisher: Hodder Children’s Books

Jake, Lemon, Fatyak and Kellogg are the Outcasts: a group of friends formed after being victims of bully Todd Miller. When Jake buys a new role-playing game, the rest of the Outcasts aren't thrilled, but they eventually give in. As the game progresses, they discover they have acquired actual superpowers - Jake can conjure, Lemon has super-strength, Fatyak can camouflage and Kellogg can heal anything with a touch. It turns out the box is more than just a game, and there's a secret organisation hunting it down. They won't stop until they have it, and they're not afraid to kill anyone who gets in their way.

One of the best features of this book is the design. The text is clear and bold, and the border artwork really draws you into the action. This will really appeal to reluctant readers, with the design resulting in fewer words per page.
