Jason lives in both the real world and the digital world. After meeting Boston, though, a series of events leaves him alone and confused as both worlds tumble down around him. Now Jason has to figure out who can be trusted, who the bad guy is, and, more importantly, who is real. 

Branham wanted her book to be full of mystery and suspense, and I can see her good faith effort, but she could not pull it off. The mystery part confused me to the point that I wanted to put the book down and forget about it rather than take the time to untangle what was going on. This ruined all attempts of the suspense trying to build up and keep my attention. The last 60 pages were the best, but it was hardly worth the effort to get there.
