In this provocative cautionary tale for teens, the sequel to "Awaken," seventeen-year-old Maddie's rebellion against the digital-only life grows dangerous. Maddie is in Los Angeles, trying to stay out of trouble. But one night, a seemingly small act of defiance lands her in the place she fears the most: a detention center. Here, patients are reprogrammed to accept a digital existence. Maddie is now fighting for her mind, her soul, and her very life. Once again, Katie Kacvinsky paints a disturbing picture of our increasingly technology-based society.

Review quote

"Lyrical, provocative, passionate and thought-provoking."

"In Middle Ground, Kacvinsky presents a compelling argument for the lost art of conversation, set against a dark version of our possible collective future. Maddie is a pleasingly reluctant heroine, resulting in a story that is as fresh as it is timely."
--"School Library Journal"
