Sequel to The Egypt Game, this book is where they start to become "gypsies" doing gypsy traditions. Is it true that one of the kids in the group is actually a gypsy? ( )

I was disappointed with The Gypsy Game. While the first book, The Egypt Game, was full of Egypt-related adventures and activities, the majority of its followup centered on the missing character. Nowhere near as satisfying.

Synder's "The Egypt Game" was one of my absolute favorite books as a child. "The Gypsy Game" is "Egypt Game's" 'sequel,' written several decades after its predecessor. It's a well-written book with a solid plot and I was amazed to see how well Synder recaptured all her characters after such a long leave of absence. I could easily see where the plot was going, but a child definitely would not, and I enjoyed the volume despite its transparency. This is definitely one of the best young readers/young adult books I've read in quite awhile.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0440412587, Paperback)

The kids from The Egypt Game are back. What game will they play next? The answer is Gypsies. While April plunges in with her usual enthusiasm, the more Melanie learns, the more something seems to be holding her back. But it's Toby who adds a really new wrinkle when he announces that he himself is a bona fide Gypsy. Plus he can get them some of his grandmother's things to use as real Gypsy props for the new game. What could be more thrilling? Then Toby suddenly and mysteriously disappears, and the kids discover that living as real-life Gypsies may not be as much fun as they thought. How will they find Toby and rescue him from the very real problems that are haunting his life?
