Half self-help book, half homage to classic video game magazines, Unofficial Guide functions as a second-person walkthrough, leading the reader/player through a piece of software that doesn't actually exist. Trek through dungeons, collect power-ups, and battle fearsome bosses.
Melancholic, funny, and definitely weird, Unofficial Guide is an unusual formal experiment.
Thanks so much for your interest!

But things become a lot more complicated when Anda befriends a gold farmer -- a poor Chinese kid whose avatar in the game illegally collects valuable objects and then sells them to players from developed countries with money to burn. This behavior is strictly against the rules in Coarsegold, but Anda soon comes to realize that questions of right and wrong are a lot less straightforward when a real person's real livelihood is at stake.
From acclaimed teen author Cory Doctorow and rising star cartoonist Jen Wang, In Real Life is a sensitive, thoughtful look at adolescence, gaming, poverty, and culture-clash. [close]
