Beth Moon’s death devastates her family, prompting synesthetic daughter Olivia to take off to carry out her lifelong wish to see the “ghost lights” of the cranberry glades. Sister Jazz reluctantly follows and the trainhoppers they meet spark a new level of understanding between the two in this offbeat but affecting coming-of-age story.
In the year 2044, humanity is grim and bleak. Like Wade, most of the population escape their lives through OASIS- a virtual reality world. Here, you create who you want to be, and live within a “videogame”. Millions try to complete a quest in the hopes of winning a lottery that would provide power and financial security for a lifetime. However, if it falls into the wrong hands, life will only be worse. Wade cracks the first riddle, and the adventure begins in a video game world of pop culture 80′s: Dungeons and Dragons, Short Circuit, Tempest, Blondie. If those ring a bell, or even not :) …be sure to check out this book!
