The Gauntlet by Karuna Riazi book review #iLoveMG

For their recent independent book clubs, I had my fifth graders design their own book cover to accompany the book. I hope you enjoy their interpretations as well as their reviews. 

(Please note that my fifth graders  #iLoveMG read a wide variety of books across a wide variety of genres, levels, and topics. Do not think that these books are "only" for fifth graders.) Or check out #3rdfor3rd for recommendations from when I taught third grade.

The Gauntlet

Recommended by Ellen


My book is The Gauntlet by Karuna Riazi.

On Farah’s twelfth birthday she receives a game from her aunt, not expecting to be trapped in it. Farah and her friends complete challenges in a mind deceiving world and search for Farah's little brother Ahmed. The Gauntlet cheats and doesn’t give anyone an easy game. The players are fierce competitors, but the game doesn’t play fair. 

Can they escape and find Ahmed, or will they be trapped in the game forever?

I give this book 5 stars!
