Book Scavenger is about this girl named Emily, who's family moves a lot more than usual. They want to live in every state in the U.S. Emily is a big reader, loves to solve puzzles, and loves to play a game called Book Scavenger, where people hide their books and eave hints for other people to find it. On the way to California, she hears that her idol, Garrison Griswold was attacked while briging his new idea for his next games to a meeting. When she moves into her new home in California, she meets a boy named James, who is also a book lover. She decides to take him on a scavenge to find a book someone has hidden. When she founds out the book was already found, they go explore the area. She finds the spot where Griswold was attacked, and discovers a book, Gold Bug, that Griswold was going to bring to the meeting. Emily finds out that the attackers of Griswold also want the book. They stalk Emily and James. Nevertheless, Emily and James try to solve the puzzle that is in the book. A little conflict occurs between James and Emily because James feels like Emily only wants to be his friend to help solve the puzzle. After some time apart, they come back together to finish the puzzle. Together, the end up solving the puzzle and realize why the attackers of Griswold wanted the book so bad. Griswold also ended up recovering.
I like books that deal with solving things and using clues, so this book was easy for me to read. I did enjoy the book a lot. I though the idea behind it was pretty cool. I actually looked up if the game Book Scavenger was a thing and it was! This was a good book that had me reading straight through it. I do think that I'm going to read the second. Recommend for young readers who also like puzzle books. ( )

Emily has gotten very used to moving with her family. With all of the moving she finds she hasn't been able to form any strong friendships, so she does so with her books. As many others do, she loves playing Book Scavenger, a game where people read books, hide them throughout cities, and leave clues for others to find them. However, there is an attack on the Book Scavengers creator. Knowing he has a new game coming out soon Emily and her new friend James come across a strange book and find themselves on a wild hunt to find out the secret about the new game and protect themselves from the same attackers.

A grand adventure for bookworms and puzzle-lovers alike. I'm not the type of reader to stop and try to figure out all of the cyphers and codes myself, but you could if you wanted to. The premise is great, the plot is well-paced and with enough danger to be exciting, but the characters' emotional arcs are strong, too; particularly Emily and Matthew. James is a bit flat, and Steve is just stupid. I think this will be a bit hit with all the nerdy reader kids. ( )

Twelve-year-old Emily’s family moves more frequently than the average family. After all, her parents are on a quest to live in all 50 states for their blog. When they move to San Francisco, the home of Emily’s book idol, Garrison Griswold, she is beyond excited to be in the city where her favorite game Book Scavenger was created. She can’t believe it when she finds out her idol has been attacked and is in the hospital. Who would do such a thing? Her new neighbor, James, becomes fast friends with her after they realize that they both love puzzles. James has never played Book Scavenger (a game where people hide books in cities all over the country and leave clues online leading the cleverest people to find them) and when he goes with Emily and her older brother, Matthew, to look for a book they find a special one, The Gold-Bug. The book looks different from any Emily has ever seen, and the weirdest part is even though it's written by Edgar Allen Poe, it's full of mistakes. Are all the copies wrong? Are the mistakes clues? Finding The Gold-Bug makes Emily and James believe they may have stumbled on Garrison Griswold’s latest game, one he never got to announce because he was attacked. Unfortunately, the people who injured Mr. Griswold want the book that Emily has, and they will stop at nothing to get it back. Will Emily and James be able to figure out what the clues they find in The Gold-Bug mean? Can the bad guys actually find Emily and James? Did Garrison Griswold create a game he was never able to announce? Now that Emily has made her first real friend, will she have to say goodbye before she gets to really know him? You'll have to read this fabulous literary adventure in order to find out!

I didn’t know anything about Book Scavenger by Jennifer Chambliss Bertman when I started reading. I was pleasantly surprised to learn about the fun book scavenger game that the story centers around, and I think it will appeal to a lot of kids and adults. I also think Emily would be an interesting friend because she loves books like I do and she has lived in a lot of places that I would like to talk to her about. I think Emily’s friend, James, is funny and I appreciate that he is comfortable being who he is and that he doesn’t try to impress others. Reading about Emily and James’s friendship could help kids see that being a friend means listening and doing things your friend likes to do too. The story also included many details about books, the publishing industry, and Edgar Allen Poe’s works. I know this will be a book that kids in fourth grade and up will get into (and people of any age who love books). I look forward to reading the next book in the series! ( )
