grav_ity: (that's how we roll in the shire)
This was an ARC for a book that comes out on March 27, and I was VERY lucky to get it at OLA last week.

(What happened was that they had samplers at the booth, and I stood there staring at them for a second, and then said out loud "Do I want a sample though? Because they I'll have to wait?" and the sales rep was all "Do you want one? Because I have one!", and then I may have accidentally proposed marriage, because in addition to The Gauntlet, she came back with another ARC I wanted EVEN MORE.)

Anyway, so it's a MG Jumanji-style adventure, about a girl whose brother gets trapped in a game, and so she and her two best friends go in after him. It was very fast paced and also very beautifully written, which was sometimes a little whip-lashy, but generally worked. Kaye is an AMAZING writer, and I am SO PLEASED about her book.

What makes it extra special, though, is that the MC is Muslim. So you have this wacky adventure romp, starring a girl who gets to wear a hijab on the cover of her own novel, and that just makes me so happy.

Also, the descriptions of food are amazing. ;)
