{Synopsis} – From comics rising star Sarah Graley, a fresh and funny middle-grade graphic novel featuring a girl who must save a virtual world… and her own!

Izzy has an incredible secret — she can enter the world of her new video game! She meets Rae, a robot who says Izzy is destined to save Dungeon City from the Big Boss. How is this possible?! And how can she fight for this virtual world when she’s got a whole real life to keep up with: her family (though she could do without her mom’s annoying cat), and her best friend, Eric. Things get even weirder when Izzy loses a life while inside the game, and she starts to worry about what might happen if she gets a Game Over for good. Meanwhile, Eric has been super upset with Izzy since she’s been keeping secrets and bailing on their plans. Can Izzy survive Dungeon City and save their friendship?

{My thoughts} – Brilliantly written and illustrated. All of my older kids love video games and this book is right up their alley. I’ve read a few books that have a similar premise, but not a graphic novel like this. I really enjoyed being drawn into the author and the writers created world.

There is so much that I can say about this book. The main thing is that it is spot on about how my children like to act when they get overly involved in playing a video game. However, in their case it doesn’t matter if it is new or not.

Izzy and her friend Eric have been waiting for the release of a new game called Dungeon City. Izzy promises her friend Eric that she isn’t going to play the game until the weekend. She isn’t able to keep the promise. She ends with more issues then she bargained for once she starts playing the video game.

This book is great for any child that loves video games. It is also a great book that I think even the most reluctant of readers will be able to enjoy. I have come to love graphic novels almost as much as my older children and I cannot wait to start introducing them to the babies when they are old enough!

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
