E.C. (ecodex) | 4 comments The Canadian/British thing in title comes from the character at one point referring to her "mobile"--I can't remember anything specific about setting.
The plot is loosely about a young teenage girl who gets involved in her school's D&D club, at some point they go LARPing in tunnels or something concrete.
I would have read this book in middle school and at that point it would have been *relatively* recent, so published somewhere between 2003-2008; the year I read it would have been either 2007-2009. The cover was blue or purple and it wouldn't have exceeded 200 pages.

The one by Rona Jaffe was published in the 80s so unlikely they would have had mobile phones though.

it's a similar book---some kids are LARPing in an industrial area at some point but the comparison stops there. "mazes and monsters" is so notorious, however, that every time i try to find out what this mystery book is i end up with that instead!

Fitfully, yes. )-: It haunts me. I even went as far as to contact the librarian at my old middle school where I read the book and never heard back.

Phoebe, what's the genre (which we need to add to the header/topic title) - e.g., YA fantasy, mystery, thriller?
