Reviews - What do customers think about MVP*?

2009 Nutmeg Award Nominee  Mar 3, 2008
I live in Connecticut and I saw this books was a nominee for the 2009 Nutmeg Award. It's about a 12-year-old boy who is challenged to circled the world in under forty day by taking only land and sea transportation. It's very unusual, very exciting, and one of those books that's easy to read and hard to put down.
 
MVP   Feb 22, 2008
I think MVP by Douglas Evans was a very suspenseful book that captivated my attention and interest until the very end. Readers who enjoy exotic books will like this adventerous fiction tale of MVP. This time seeking book is about Adam Story and other twelve-year-olds racing around the world, with no adults, in forty days or less. If you reach home base traveling by land and water only, you recieve $4 million. Adam gets challenged by Prince Olioli Oh to travel for his Magellan Voyage Project in the Great Global Game. On a scale from 0-5, I would give this outrageous story a 5 star rating. I would give MVP a 5 star rating because it made me feel like I was a player in the competition, trying to race around the world in 40 summer days! If you like traveling, learning new things, and are up for a competition, pick up a copy of MVP, the worldwide journey of twelve-year-olds.
 
2008 Rebecca Caudill Young Readers' Book Award Nominee  Jul 30, 2007
I read this book because it was on the award list in Illinois. It's about a boy who tries to travel around the world without taking any airplanes and do it in 40 days. It's very good
 
Brandons Review  Jan 30, 2007
Flashing before your eyes, a sterilizing dart penetrates your arm. Scary huh? Well this is only one of the things that Adam Story, a 12 year old kid, who has a challenge to travel the world in 40 days. Wow that must take a lot of time.

In MVP I can see how the author, Douglas Evans, can choose the title because he's known to have very adventuress stories that are most exiting. Also I can see how he picked out the title because it's a race to the finish and in the end you get a prize a big one too.

Well this 12-year-old kid takes the MVP challenge and as he goes he will have a difficult time getting through the task to go around the world in 40 days. Wow that's a short amount of time to go around the world.

Like for example one of the difficulties is he runs into these people and they capture him in his wonderful adventure around the world. The problem is he only has 40 days to go across the world. So in this detention center you have to stay in there for 3 days and that makes it even difficult to get around the world.

Also the Authors theme was better than other books because it doesn't have chapters it has time zones and they say where they are and you don't get lost because the time zones were just amount of pages. Also it makes you want to read on and on because it always ends with a twist and you want to know what happens next.

Well if you hadn't read this I would recommend this book because it always ends with a twist also it also adventuress and if you did read this I recommend one of the authors other books like Apple Island and if you didn't read this book I would because he has very adventuress and exiting story about traveling around the world.
