The Egypt Game Literature Unit

By Zilpha Keatley Snyder

Melanie Ross and April Hall are two girls you would never expect to form a close friendship. April is an only child from Hollywood who wears false eyelashes, up-swept hair, and a fake-feathered boa wrap. She also has a snooty attitude. Her mother is trying to be an actress and has paid little attention to April over the years. The book begins when her mother dumps her off with her grandmother for an undetermined amount of time. Melanie, whose family lives in the same building, is down-to-earth and friendly. She likes everyone she meets and comes from a very traditional family—both parents are married and live at home and she has a younger brother, Marshall.

Yet, despite their differences, the two form a friendship, one based around creativity and imagination. They make up incredible stories and play wildly fantastic games together. They are the ones who begin the Egypt game—a game played in an abandoned lot behind an antique store belonging to a mysterious “professor.”

While everyone loves the secret game, mysterious things begin happening and they also have to be worried about a serial murderer in the neighborhood whose victims are children their age.  The twists and turns in the plot keep the reader turning page after page.
