No Child's Game is the story of a futuristic society where the television game, Survivor, has taken on a whole new meaning. Contestants are now part of a life and death game recreating famous events in history, such as, Civil War Historical Survivor, Bubonic Plague Historical Survivor, and Alamo Historical Survivor. The script of these events is controlled by the Secretary of Entertainment whose job is to educate the masses through television since only a very few are allowed to go to school if they win a toss of the dice. For the first time in Antarctic Survivor, young people will be the participants. Unknown to the young contestants, cameras have been implanted into their eyes to record the journey of Robert Scott on his ill-fated expedition to discover the South Pole in 1912. This is a great story with lots of action and adventure as well as asking some thought-provoking questions about society. Excellent Book! ( )

Five kids are competing in a historical survivor show in year 2083. The show simulates the 1912 Robert F. Scott expedition to Antarctica. Their is no camera crew, the cameras were inserted into the contestants eyes. The game is dangerous, the kids are expected to die, but they hold out with the help of a new crew employee. This book is one of my favorites, it is full of action. You wont be able to put this book down once you start. ( )
