Two points for brushing your teeth. Ten points for keeping your room tidy. Seventy-two points for the Bioeconomic Game Design pop quiz on the ride to school in your personal FunCar. Another thirty for making every hurdle in gym class.
Life is a game, unless you're not the one winning.
When Gabby DeCorte, top student and reality-hacker extraordinaire, learns the truth about LifeGame, she must choose between winning and what she believes in.
I thought this was a quick, fun read. In the beginning, I wasn't so sure how I would enjoy it, but by the end I found that I really liked it.
It reads very much like a dystopian kind of book but set in and written in a gaming world. I will say that if you are not a gamer of some sort, you might find this book difficult to get through. Not because the story isn't good, but the language and such might be a bit confusing.
I enjoyed the characters quite a bit and I look forward to see how this plays out in the next book.
