Read in September, 2007

Erik lives in a utopian world where violence has been outlawed and problems are settled only in the virtual world of Epic. Epic is a massive multi-player game ... for the entire planet. Those living there are refugees from Earth, which was destroyed long ago by violence. People now earn their wealth and status through playing Epic, though the world they live in has very little technology. Eric rebels against the system and the rules, creating a character that chooses to act in ways that seem to go against common sense -- but her (yes -- his character is female) actions may help Erik free his father from exile by the Central Allocations committee and show the world that there is another way to think and live. Utopia or dystopia? Lots of action, a must-read for my gamers, but a great story for everyone! This one's gotten rave reviews nationally.
