Waiting on Wednesday: UNPLUGGED by Donna Freitas

Did you know I love Science Fiction? I think it's pretty clear based on the majority of my reading choices. So it should come as no surprise that this book is on my anticipated reads for this year...
UNPLUGGED by Donna Freitas
Author: Donna Freitas
Series: The Wired #1
Publisher: HarperTeen
Publication Date: June 21, 2016

The first book in a provocative new series from acclaimed author Donna Freitas—Feed for a new generation.

Humanity is split into the App World and the Real World—an extravagant virtual world for the wealthy and a dying physical world for the poor. Years ago, Skylar Cruz’s family sent her to the App World for a chance at a better life.

Now Skye is a nobody, a virtual sixteen-year-old girl without any glamorous effects or expensive downloads to make her stand out in the App World. Yet none of that matters to Skye. All she wants is a chance to unplug and see her mother and sister again.

But when the borders between worlds suddenly close, Skye loses that chance. Desperate to reach her family, Skye risks everything to get back to the physical world. Once she arrives, however, she discovers a much larger, darker reality than the one she remembers.

In the tradition of M. T. Anderson’s Feed and Scott Westerfeld’s Uglies, Unplugged kicks off a thrilling and timely sci-fi series for teens from an award-winning writer.

  1. ANNDDDD that is the probable with virtual worlds! :( You just can't trust them. But I am SUPER intrigued to know how the world is divided in the real world and the APP world? Hmm...
