Everywhere Regan goes, people are completely oblivious to the world around them. Sweeping the nation is the new technology Elusion, which transports the user into a perfect virtual reality. Yet Regan has not used Elusion for months, because Elusion makes you forget real life. That means forgetting that her father, the inventor of Elusion, is dead. Yet when rumors surface of flaws in Elusion, Regan sets out to find the truth, because it is all that is left of his legacy. She finds a new ally, and together they begin to discover a twisted maze of secrets. Secrets people are willing to kill over. (KATHERINE TEGEN, Mar. 400 pp., $17.99, ISBN 9780062122414, HC, 14 & Up)
