T L Costa

Dear Librarian:

For PLAYING TYLER, I wanted to write a book for the teens that may not usually get to see themselves as heroes. I wanted to write about the boy that can't sit still, that can't focus, the girl that's good at coding, that lives to study, two kids that live for videogames. Two kids that the world may see as outcasts, but who in each other, might see a future.

When gamer Tyler MacCandless gets the opportunity to beta-test a drone piloting game to try and win a spot in flight school, he takes it. But when the game seems too real, he teams up with the game's designer to uncover the truth, questioning everything he knows about morality, family and fighting for love in a world at war.

TL Costa

"Katniss Everdeen, Harry Potter, Ponyboy Curtis...add another name to the list of unforgettable teenage heroes: Tyler MacCandless. Ty will break your heart and make you cheer on this fast and furious thrill-ride. A breathtaking new voice in young adult fiction, TL Costa weaves realistic adventure, heartache and first love in this amazing, fast-paced story. Fresh. Thrilling. Heartfelt. I'm running out of adjectives, but trust me. You will love this book." —Kristan Higgins, NYT and USA Today bestselling author of THE BEST MAN
