Review Text

This futuristic thriller takes the reader into the world of virtual reality. Two teenagers Miriam and Stuart are chosen, supposedly at random, to test a new computer game. The twist in the game is that it tunes in to each player's worst fears which it uses against them. The suspense is brilliantly held right up to the uncomfortable climax. (12 yrs +) (Kirkus UK)show more
