Jesse Rigsby hates video games—and for good reason. You see, a video game character is trying to kill him. After getting sucked in the new game Full Blast with his friend Eric, Jesse starts to see the appeal of vaporizing man-size praying mantis while cruising around by jet pack. But pretty soon, a mysterious figure begins following Eric and Jesse, and they discover they can't leave the game. If they don't figure out what's going on fast, they'll be trapped for good!

This has to be the most video game driven book that I have ever read that makes reading fun for kids who love video games! When you have two boys (named Jesse & Eric) get sucked into a video game that leaves them wondering what will happen next, anything and everything starts going wrong. It's when they realize that a game glitch is going into self protection mode and will kill anything that wasn't in the game to begin with, it will leave them both fighting for their lives. I found this first book in this series to be filled with laugh out moments and moments that will have you wondering what is going to happen next. It's the perfect book for kids who need something that will get them to read a book when they are just too connected to video games. I will say this as a adult reading it, it made me want to read the other books in this series just to see what will happen next for Jesse & Eric! Thank You to Dustin Brady for writing a good start to this series that will hopefully get kids to drop the controllers to pick up a book!! I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book from NetGalley!
Son enjoyed...went right to the next book! Love when a series does this for the young reader!
