The story MVP is an
adventurous story. The main character is Adam Story. He is a 12 year old kid
that is brave and likes adventurous things. One day after school, in San Francisco, a weird
man walked up to Adam. The manís name is Prince and he offers a big challenge
for Adam. The challenge is to get around the world in 40 days or less without
flying. He says that he will be famous and rich and have tons of fans. Adam
likes the idea but he is supposed to be going to camps throughout the summer.
If he wants to take the offer he has to hide it from his mother and make up
letters to make her think he is at summer camp. Everything is already scheduled
for Adam. Adam is supposed to follow the schedule exactly how it reads. He
takes the challenge and starts on a bus to Nevada. He reaches Nevada
and takes an un-scheduled train to Chicago.
Since he isnít on the scheduled train he meets another 12 year old girl named
Meredith trying to get around the world in 40 days or less without flying. They
start to wonder if something is going on. Adam and Meredith finally figure out
that there is a game going on. The game is called the GGG (Great Global Game).
They find out that there are 24 other players in the game. Each team has a
producer, pilots and a 12 year old player. Adamís team is MVP (Magellan Voyage
Project). There are trackers that try to catch all 24 players. If a tracker
catches a player they take them to a DC (Detention Center).
Will Adam Story be the one to make it around the Earth?????
††††††††† I think this a good
action book for a 5th & 6th graders. I enjoyed reading
MVP because it was an exciting book. The character liked doing things that are
adventurous and the book was a big game going on and you always wanted to find
out what happened next. MVP is the best book I have ever read!!
