I found Pieces and Players to be a more challenging book than Ms. Balliett's earlier five books. It is interesting that she has decided to combine all five protagonists from the earlier books in an adventure that is more difficult than each has experienced. Adolescence and insecurities have invaded their world. Can the five teens work together and solve the mystery? Ms. Balliett has included puzzles for the reader to decipher once again using pentominoes, silly nursery rhymes, prime numbers and coded messages. Pieces and Players is a great book to read, but you may want to read one of the earlier books first.
