4.0 Review: The Egypt Game

5.0 The Egypt Game (Turtleback School & Library Binding Edition)
We read this book in school, but I also loved all of Zilpha Keatley-Snyder's work, esp the Great Stanley Kidnapping Case. A few years ago I heard her speak at my public library, and she was just wonderful, very warm and funny.
