Staff Reviews

Nat is nervous about her friends finding out she’s an avid gamer, but when her biggest fan, her older sister, is ready to move out to her own apartment, Nat has to use the courage she shows in her gaming to risk telling her friends. A fun novel with a gaming girl—wow!

— Jamie


Thirteen-year-old Natalie lives a double life. By day, she’s an average eighth grader at Golden Trails Middle. At night, she’s Gnat112, a streamer for her favorite video game, Alienlord. But when the new girl moves in next door, will Natalie's double life be revealed?

Natalie has a secret. She's a gamer.

By day, Natalie is an average eighth grade student. At night, she's Gnat112! Living a double life is hard . . . and keeping a secret from your friends is even harder.

In this illustrated middle grade book (the first of an all-new series, Gamer Girls), Natalie and her three BFFs learn to navigate the gamer world together, one girl at a time. This series is a great read for gamers and gamer enthusiasts of all kinds. Plus, there's the occasional middle school drama . . . if only Natalie could battle math teachers like video game aliens!
