In the book The Egypt Game two young girls meet and become friends.  They learn that they both like Egyptian things and the culture.  The girls start a club and a game.  Part of the game includes building an alter for Set the Egyptian god. 

The girls do not really believe in Set but they are curious when the younger brother's stuffed octopus disappears and is later found after a note appears on Set's alter. 

In ancient Egypt ion mythology Set is an ancient god.  He is believed to be the god of chaos.
