The Gypsy Game free read ✓ 6 Enly and mysteriously disappears and the kids discover that living as real life Gypsies may not be as much fun as they thought How will they find Toby and rescue him from the very real problems that are haunting his li. This review also appears on my blog Read at Home MomNow that they have permission to play the Egypt Game it doesn t seem as interesting to sixth graders April and Melanie After some consideration they decide it might be exciting to shift their focus to gypsies instead The trouble is before the Gypsy Game can truly get underway real world problems intervene Toby one of the Egyptians has run away supposedly to avoid being kidnapped by his gypsy grandparents April Melanie and their friends do their best to remain loyal to their friend while also satisfying the uestions and concerns raised by the adults in their lives who are concerned about Toby s well being Though there are 30 years between the publication date of The Egypt Game and the release of The Gypsy Game in this fictional universe it is literally as though no time has passed at all The second book picks up just where the first one leaves off filling in the very next line of dialogue By the end of the first page the reader is once again completely immersed in April and Melanie s worlds both the real one and the one they imagine For me the time between books was only a couple of weeks so I can t say for sure whether the ease with which I slipped into the second story is a credit to the author or simply a benefit of reading the books one right after the other Still I felt a strong connection to the setting and to each of the kids perhaps even so than I did in their first story Though real world conflicts do encroach upon the Egyptians game in the first book I think the problem presented in the second one is pressing on the characters because this time they know the situation and the danger Toby might be in The fact that the kids do have some information about Toby that they conceal from adults creates a sense of tension and suspense that keeps the story moving forward uickly with many uestions and answers following one after the other I felt strongly invested in the characters this time because they were much invested in the real world happenings around them and not just in their make believeThe politically incorrect use of the term gypsy may pose a problem but I think a little coaching from adults can help kids understand why this word is no longer used and why it is appropriate to refer to this group as Roma The use of gypsy in the title of the book and throughout the story is actually not used in an offensive way The storyline itself works in many details about how the Roma people have been treated throughout history and when the characters are well informed they do develop a stronger sense of respect that informs their plans for the Gypsy Game The only thing I truly uestioned was whether it was necessary for Toby to claim he is a gypsy because it doesn t seem to add much to the story and it kind of makes him into a token character especially because we learn nothing of his racial background in the first book Similarly the homeless characters in the story are treated very stereotypically with little to differentiate them from each other or to develop them as characters rather than just a collection of homeless people inserted to further a plotOverall I enjoyed this book especially on the heels of The Egypt Game The Egypt Game is the superior story and I don t necessarily think readers will miss out if they never read The Gypsy Game but it is nice to revisit the same characters and see where else the author s imagination can take them There is a bit of a cheesy Lassie moment where a dog is able to lead the kids to Toby s location which seems totally unbelievable and out of place but there are just as many really lovely moments including Marshall beginning to outgrow his need for Security his stuffed octopus and all the kids sneaking out to bring food to Toby while he is in hiding If you re a fan of the first book it s worth checking out the second especially if you go in with no expectations and simply enjoy the story Doll 87th
