About this title

Synopsis:

When computer junkie Jack North downloads a pirated internet copy of Silicon Sphere, the ultimate in virtual reality, he suspects that there is more to the game than meets the eye--a virtual world so nightmarish that the only way out may be to give in. Original.

Review:

Imagine a virtual world so realistic, so powerful that it begins to bleed into life beyond the computer screen. Jack North, a teenage computer junkie and gaming wizard, has come across the ultimate virtual reality game--Silicon Sphere. It's got such a hold on his life and senses that he can feel himself being sucked into the screen, into the Sphere. The weirdest thing is that when he ends sessions of the game, he seems to bring back little bits from the world beyond--sand, crumpled notes, and more. When kids around the world begin to disappear, he starts to wonder if they've become trapped in the Sphere.

Chris Westwood has woven a tale of teenagers driven by their passions, a tale of virtual reality so clear that it becomes more than real. Westwood's grip on Internet protocol is firm enough that sophisticated, Net-savvy teens will stay glued to the book until its surprising ending.
