Steve’s Sidekick, Book 1: Zombie Bait GENRE: Children’s Adventure
(An Unofficial Minecraft Book for Kids Ages 9 - 12 (Preteen)
Jake was always confident in just about everything he did until his friend, Steve, sends him out on a little errand after they (technically just Steve) build a house. On his way back from the errand, he gets lost and finds a town that’s heavily guarded by guards and a very big gate surrounding it. Does he find this strange? Probably but Jake is more worried about the monsters outside the gate than the strangers inside the wall. Entering this new town that he’s never heard of before was a new experience for him. He has a not so welcoming encounter with zombies and meets a slightly crazy mayor. When Jake asks the townspeople who their founders are, they freak out and think that he’s a crazy one because he does not know. Notch? Jake has never heard of him. Herobrine? Is it Hero-brine or He-robrine, Never mind...Steve? Of course Jake knows Steve. He basically grew up with him but Steve never mentioned anything about establishing a town and Steve seems too young to be a founding father. Jake begins to question everything after he finds out that there’s a book about his entire life. Past, present, and future. How fun! All that power in the hands of one person but it’s not in Jake’s hands. Nope. It even feels like the whole town is out to get him. Does Jake even have the option to leave anymore?
