At least not until Quinn steals his invitation and goes by himself. Blake and his friends decide to go inside the carnival to rescue Quinn, only realizing after that this is no ordinary carnival. Blake and his friends have entered a game of life and death. If they cannot ride seven rides before dawn, they will lose their souls and forever be imprisoned inside the carnival.
But these are no ordinary thrill rides. Each ride is specially designed for Blake and his friends. Each ride is made from their deepest nightmares and the darkest thoughts they refuse to think about. Will Blake be able to find his brother? Will they make it out of the evil carnival or will they be forever trapped within this terrible land of nightmares?
Fans of R.L. Stine and Mary Downing Hahn’s books will definitely find an enjoyable read in Full Tilt.

Favorite Quote: “They say you never know who's the real hero and who's the real coward until you're looking death in the face. I've always been afraid of plenty of things, but fear isn't what makes you a coward. It's how depraved your heart becomes when fear gets pumped through it.”
