Description:

Sixteen-year-old Max and 10-year-old Tessa were fully prepared for another horrible summer vacation. While they always hoped to go somewhere fun like Disney World or Universal Studios, they usually went somewhere weird and cheap that their father, former boy bander Don Masters, found in an ad in a truck stop coupon magazine. But this year was different. Where they went couldn't be found on any map or in any truck stop coupon book. 

They passed through a portal to a place called Turtle Island, an alternate version of America that diverged from our history before the pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock. It was there where they met world famous action movie star Jordie Paine -- star of such films as I Plan to Kill You Now and the sequel, I Plan to Kill You Now, Too, the ninja film, Chuck Butcher: Sword Wielding Jackal, as well as the light-hearted romp, Harry Hinklehoffer and the Giant Dancing Toad of East Nebraska -- who would be their guide in this strange new world. 

Jordie, they later learned, brought the Masters family to Turtle Island for a very specific reason. Because they look just like the ruthless first family of Turtle Island, the Masters are pawns in a coup to overthrow the dictator. But things don’t go as planned and the Masters wind up in the Survival Games, Turtle Island’s national pastime/system of justice where criminals competitors, or crimpetitors, compete for their freedom. In this scifi comedy, the stakes are very simple -- if they win, they rule, if they lose, they must suffer the consequences.
