The Name at the End of the Ladder
|Author:||Elena de Roo|
"Win the game to choose your name and free the players who remain." Twelve-year-old September is determined to choose an adventurous name for herself from the Name Bank - not like all her friends, who are named after flowers or trees. Soon she discovers that she has no choice, unless she wins an ancient and mysterious board game. And every roll of the dice leads her further into danger.
Elena de Roo is an Auckland children's writer and poet. Her first book, The Rain Train, was illustrated by Brian Lovelock. This was followed by the Ophelia Wild series, illustrated by Tracy Duncan.
