really liked it
bookshelves: juvenile-fiction
Read from March 19 to 20, 2012

I put off reading this because the cover was not at all enticing... However, I find myslef devouring the story of Duncan Dorfman (and several others) who play Scrable and are in a big-money tournament in Florida. Duncan (7th grade) has not always liked Scrable. But a "tough-guy" turned Scrable player from Duncan's school finds out he "reads" with his fingers, he drafts Duncan, figuring there is no way they can lose now.

Duncan wins personally because during the tournament he figures out that his father did not die of a rare disease, but lives in the same town he does.

The story ends, but I would not be surprised if the series continues. There are questions to be answered: What about April and the guy she re-met? What about Mike Scobee, Duncan's father? Does he have the finger sensitivity thing? ???
