Have you marked July 2nd on your calendars? Why? PLAYING TYLER will hit the shelves! Woot!
Thanks to NetGalley for an ARC!
Tyler MacCandless can’t focus, even when he takes his medication. He can’t focus on school, on his future, on a book, on much of anything other than taking care of his older brother, Brandon, who’s in rehab for heroin abuse… again.
Tyler’s dad is dead and his mom has mentally checked out. The only person he can really count on is his Civilian Air Patrol Mentor, Rick. The one thing in life it seems he doesn’t suck at is playing video games, and, well, that’s probably not going to get him into college.
Just when it seems like his future is on a collision course with a life sentence at McDonald’s, Rick asks him to test a video game. If his score’s high enough, it could earn him a place in flight school and win him the future he was certain that he could never have. And when he falls in love with the game’s designer, the legendary gamer Ani, Tyler thinks his life might finally be turning around.
That is, until Brandon goes MIA from rehab and Tyler and Ani discover that the game is more than it seems. Now Tyler will have to figure out what’s really going on in time to save his brother… and prevent his own future from going down in flames.
cait is fond of books that go BOOM. she also likes cheese. her ambition (of the hour) is to read as many books as she can get her hands on. this is likely to change because she also wishes to go to the moon. after she recovers from the book-hangover of playing tyler, she will toss between chantress and contamination. oh, the tough life of a bookworm.
