Countdown to Danger: Shockwave by Jack Heath (CKT Kids review)
Published by Scholastic Australia
This is a Choose Your Own Adventure book, part of the Countdown to Danger series. The story begins in a surf camp, and the reader has decisions to make at the end of each chapter. The book is written in second person, making the reader the main character of the story.
The book is written well (I think books like this would be hard to write!) and I read it several times for different storylines. I thought that some of the decisions you had to make were quite difficult and it was a fun book – almost like playing a game.
I would recommend the book for ages 8+ - I think boys would enjoy these storylines the most. Kids who like adventure and making up their own stories will really like this book.
