From back of book: Rowan Popplewell and his sister, Nina, have been sent to stay in tiny Owatannauk, Maine, with two strange aunts they hardly know. Rowan expects a month of boredom, until he notices weird things going on in town, especially at the old, abandoned hotel in the woods. His aunt Agatha warns the children not to go near it. They ignore her advice, and the next day--Nina disappears. Now Rowan, who has made it through every level of every video game he's ever played, finds himself in a game with rules he doesn't know against the toughest opponent of all--time.
