Will you like it?
I truly enjoyed this book.  It centered around teams coming to Mr. Lemoncello's library to compete in the library olympics.  I loved how this book combined the Olympics, intellectual freedom, and banned books.  The ending was pretty good, but definitely written for younger kids.

I loved the narrator.  This narrator also read the Percy Jackson novels, so it also felt like Percy was telling this story as well.

Disclosure: I borrowed a copy of the audiobook from my local library.
