Homerooms and Hall Passes

We rated this book:


Bríandalör is a land with wizards, barbarians, elves, thieves, demons, and more. A group of young Bríandalörians meets at a local pub to play a game called Homerooms & Hall Passes, a game they play with their avatars, set in a suburban American middle school, JADMS. Unfortunately, one of the group, Devis, stole a jewel that carries a curse, and they are sucked into the game, finding themselves as their avatars at JADMS. It’s a good thing it is Dress Like a Pirate Day, or they would have a much more difficult time blending in. But blend in they do, all except Albiorix, who, as Hall Master, had no avatar. But as a wizard, he manages. And what could possibly go wrong in this scenario?

Author Tom O’Donnell has written a laugh-out-loud, down-right hysterical book that absolutely nails what middle school is all about. The writing is crisp and the dialogue snappy and perfect for the characters. One doesn’t have to be a gamer to enjoy this book. In fact, it likely will draw gamers away from their consoles for a while. This book should not be missed. Adults and kids will enjoy this clever book.
