Gameworld is a great book about a video game called Xamacia. In it, there is a kid named Dylan Rudee. He is a complete fail at everything but a video game called Xamacia. The rich company Mee Corp. is looking for the 44 "Game Changers", the 44 best players at Xamacia, to participate in a tournament. Dylan and his best friend, Eli, (who is a hacker) teamed up against everybody else and won the tournament. They meet Mee Corp.'s CEO's daughter, Ines, and learn that the prize for the tournament was adventure. Then, Dylan's sister, Emma disappeared into Xamacia in a whirlpool. The three kids are all looking for different things. Dylan is looking for his sister, Eli is looking for Nanni's book, which grants the owner wealth, and Ines is looking for the Root of Xamacia, which could cure her sick father.
