Being able to jump into books used to seem like the greatest thing in the world to Owen Conners. But now Owen's trapped in a time travel book where readers—that would be you—decide how the story goes.

As if that weren't enough, Owen's also stuck in a prison for time criminals in a prehistoric era. He's surrounded by bizarre fellow prisoners, including Kara Dox.

And he has to find a way out to save his friend Bethany, who's still in grave danger. Because unless Owen can stop him, Nobody is going to split Bethany into two, separating the fictional and nonfictional worlds forever.

Will Owen be able to convince you, the reader, to help him find his way back to Bethany? Or will you feed him to dinosaurs just to teach him a lesson? It's all up to you when you Pick the Plot.

      • content: callie_b - Warning: This is NOT your regular book. But that's a good thing, right? Owen Conners is a regular boy, who wakes up one day and finds himself in a confusing time prison, where inmates live one day over and over again endlessly. But each day their memory resets with the time loop-- the prisoners never know how long they've been there, because they don't remember any previous days in the prison. Even worse, the prison is in the Cretaceous Period, where hungry dinosaurs roam. Sounds like torture, right? But there is one way to escape this nightmare-- through the door, with a 3-digit code. If someone guesses the wrong code, the day automatically resets for everyone. The only way to discover the correct digits for the codes is to outsmart the scenarios in three airlocks. But the time prison creators are very clever. If a prisoner solves an airlock and get a digit for the passcode, the prison day resets, so how could the prisoner possibly remember the digits to escape?? But that's where YOU come in, reader! This book is a pick-the-plot book, which means YOU decide between different choices to move the story along. Owen figures out that he is in the pick-the-plot book, and recruits you to help him escape so he can go find his friend Bethany. With the help of his new friend Kara Dox, another inmate, YOU choose what Owen and Kara do to find out the code. YOU have to remember the digits. Will you help Owen and Kara discover the digits and escape the time prison, or will you feed them mercilessly to dinosaurs? It's all up to you. :) I had so much fun reading this book! It was an adventure, and I loved how interactive it was! Yes, I've read regular pick-the-plot books, but this one took it to the next level! I mean, in how many books is it up to you to solve, remember, and choose so the characters can survive and escape? Not many, that's for sure! I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys pick-the-plot books and adventures! It is a bit confusing if you haven't read the rest of the series, so maybe before reading this book you should read the other great books in this series! This book was great! 4/5 stars!
