About the Book
Alistair Gregory, the man who figured out how to put people into video games, is not what he seems. Jesse Rigsby is sure of that. Jesse’s sure of something else, too—he’s being watched. To unravel the mystery, Jesse’s going to have to transform himself into a superspy with serious retro-gaming skills. Can he pull it off before the bad guys catch on?

“Return to Doom Island,” is the fourth book in the ” Trapped in a Video game,” in which Jesse must fight to save his very family from the very robots that want to steal their world. So what’s does Jesse does, he goes back to where it all happened.
I can honestly say, this was a fun little story, for all ages. There is nothing inappropriate in the book, besides a kid about to get his nose cut off. But that’s normal for most kids these days. I would definitely recommend this great book to all kids, who still has an imagination.
