Synopses & Reviews
was literally a word-of-mouth success story, with over 120,000 copies of the groundbreaking, interactive teen novel in print. Perhaps less noticeable was the heart of the book: a good story well told. Now fans of Cathy Vickers will return to the exciting, unpredictable world that made the first book such a success.
Cathy was your average high school student doodling in the margins of her journal, crushing on a cute boy, and hanging out with her best friend Emma. As this story begins, she's trying to keep a job, her journal is stolen, the cute boy is not who he seems to be, and even Emma's side project/start-up company, Doubletalk Wireless, is about to get caught up in the mystery surrounding Cathy and her search for the truth about her father. Her presumed-dead father.
It's just a simple story, really: Girl loves Boy, Boy disappears, Girl discovers secret that will alter the course of humanity...
"Cathy is as lovable as ever, and her deadpan, smart-alecky voice and sketches should draw new readers to the series. Perfect for gaming fans, reluctant readers and manga enthusiasts." Kirkus Reviews
