A gripping YA sci-fi thriller perfect for fans of Ready Player One and The Maze Runner.

'The descriptions were great and the story was very imaginative ... for the reader who lieks to think about what their reading, this is perfect.' JENN MITCHELL, BLOGGER

A boy wakes to find himself locked in a white room. He has no memories, no idea who he is and no idea how he got there.

A computer-generated voice named Alice responds to his questions - through her, he is able to access the internet.

He gradually pieces together his story - an abduction, a critical injury, snippets of his past ... But how can the boy tell what's real and what's not? Who is he really?
