This is a book about three kids, Sam, Joe and Fred. Summer vacation just started for them. They all go to Joe's house. Sam is reading the summer reading list. Fred can't take it anymore. He grabs the summer reading list and shoves it into the bookshelf. It goes into THE BOOK. THE BOOK has silver designs on it. Suddenly they were in the middle of nowhere. You'll just have to read the book to find out what happens and where they are.

I liked this book because it has interesting characters like Fred. He says funny things. In one picture he looks really crazy. This book made me wonder if my brothers and I would be stuck in that situation.

I recommend this to people that like hilarious books. In the middle of the book when Fred and Sam go over to Joe's house, they say stuff like, "what's zup?" in really funny voices.
