It is the school holidays and Duffy is off to spend the break with his cousin Sam and Aunty Grace. Sam and Duffy don’t get to see each other much, as they live in different cities, but they talk a lot while they play games together. It turns out Sam is a bit addicted to one particular game. Duffy wants to do fun things IRL (in real life) and get some holiday reading in, but Sam is seriously lacking books. In his boredom Duffy starts to play with mysterious family heirlooms and gets sucked right into the game! Duffy and Sam have to work together to battle creatures such as the Dismantler and the Scrambler to help Duffy escape the game before time runs out! They learn that reading and books are their only hope.
