Review: Emily participates in an online game called Book Scavenger where lovers of reading provide clues to hidden books. She and her parents have just moved again, this time to San Francisco where Garrison Griswold, the inventor of the game, lives. When Griswold is mugged and so badly wounded he is in a coma, Emily and her first real friend find a strange book near the crime scene that contains what looks like Griswold's newest game. As they begin playing the game, they find they must both avoid and learn the identity of those who attacked Griswold.
