T L Costa
I love videogames. My day can absolutely suck but once I come home and pick up a controller I can be a god, an assassin, a rock star. But what if the game was more than just a game?
Tyler MacCandless is a kid everyone writes off: he's got ADHD, his brother's addicted to heroin and the only thing he really likes to do is game. Watching his own chances at college slowly slipping away, he jumps on the opportunity to beta-test a drone piloting game to try his hand at winning a spot in a new flight school. But things about the game seem a little too real. He teams up with the game's designer to figure out what's really going on, questioning everything he knows about morality, family and fighting for first love in a world at war.
"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."
