The name of my book was Full Tilt. The book was written by Neal Shusterman. I would rate this book with five stars. It is one of the best books I have ever read. I would also recomend this book to a friend.
This book was set in an amusement park most of the time. The main characters were Tyler, Russ, Quinn, and Maggie. Tyler was the biggest character. Tyler went into the amusement park to save his brother, Quinn. These kids were in high school. Tyler was not the type of kid who liked roller coasters or amusement parks but he was brave enough to go in anyway.
The plot in this book was that Quinn snuck out to go into the amusement park. Quinn had a ticket that he stole from his brother to get into the park. This park had a catch though. You had until dawn to ride seven rides, otherwise you would be trapped in the park forever. Tyler discovered his brother was gone when he woke up in the middle of the night. He went downstairs and found his brother Quinn in a "coma" because he was really inside the park. Tyler picked up Russ and Maggie and went to the park to save his brother, Quinn.
Once the kids got in to the amusement park, they got on the carosel because they thought it would be an easy ride. Once they got on the ride, they found they were riding on real animals. Tyler found out that the park was pulling memories from his mind, and making them real. They made it out of the ride, but then lost each other along the way. Tyler found Quinn on the fifth ride which was an egyptian ride. Quinn was the pharoah. Quinn was endangered because the person who ran the park was his advisor, and she poisened him. Tyler saved Quinn with the help of the townspeople. Eventually, they made it past the seventh ride and Tyler realized Quinn had only ridden five and it was dawn. The person who ran the park gave him one last chance by riding an eighth ride to free his friends. This ride was modeled after an accident in his life. Tyler succeeded and saved everyone.
