Archer, E.  
Geek Fantasy Novel
Ages 9 and up. Be careful what you wish for. Wishes can get you trapped in fantasy worlds full of killer bunny rabbits, evil aunts, and bothersome bacteria, for example. At least, that's Ralph's experience, when he's asked to spend the summer with his strange British relatives, setting up a wi-fi network at their old manor house. There's much more than internet access going on there - and this game is much stranger, and funnier, than anything on his Xbox.
