Daniel is the worst at his chess club in Loon Lake High.He is then suspiciously invited to a father son chess tournament. He then learns that his father is a grandmaster, the ultimate rank achievable in chess. His father teaches him chess and explains the past to his son. This book is rather heartwarming in a way but it's still a good read despite that (yes, some people don't like all the all the feelsy stuff in the books they read). I would give this book a 4 out of 5 stars (I'm not a realistic fiction guy myself). I would definitely recommend it though especially to realistic fiction readers.
