For the millions who log in every day, Warcross isn’t just a game – it’s a way of life. The obsession started ten years ago and its fan base now spans the globe, some eager to escape from reality and others hoping to make a profit. Struggling to make ends meet, teenage hacker Emika Chen works as a bounty hunter, tracking down Warcross players who bet on the game illegally. But the bounty-hunting world is a competitive one, and survival has not been easy. To make some quick cash, Emika takes a risk and hacks into the opening game of the international Warcross Championships – only to accidentally glitch herself into the action and become an overnight sensation. Convinced she’s going to be arrested, Emika is shocked when instead she gets a call from the game’s creator, the elusive young billionaire Hideo Tanaka, with an irresistible offer. He needs a spy on the inside of this year’s tournament in order to uncover a security problem…and he wants Emika for the job. With no time to lose, Emika’s whisked off to Tokyo and thrust into a world of fame and fortune that she’s only dreamed of. But soon her investigation uncovers a sinister plot, with major consequences for the entire Warcross empire.

Discoverability: 2nd March 2016: 3 YA Deals

I had plans for many things for this blog. One of them to keep track of where I discover books to add to my wishlist. I usually share them on Twitter and Facebook, but forget to include them here.

Discoverability source for today is Publishers Weekly’s Children’s Book News Rights Report: Week of February 29, 2016. (PW has a free newsletter for children’s book news, which may contribute to why I add more YA books to my wishlist than adult ones.)

Found THREE deals I’m interested in today. All descriptions and book information from the aforementioned link. (Authors’ links provided by me.)

CAROLYN LEE ADAMS – The Book of Ezra – Simon Pulse (World) – 2017. A teen boy sent to a poor farm by his affluent parents – who are embarrassed by his gigantism – and soon realises his charming, enigmatic new roommate may actually be possessed by the devil.

MARIE LU – Warcross duology – Putnam (NA) – 2017. Two teen bounty hunters hired by a young billionaire to catch a hacker in the world’s most popular virtual reality video game.

CINDY PON – Want – Simon Pulse (World) – 2017. A group of teens living on the fringes of a highly divided society that only works for the elite. They risk everything when they decide to take matters into their own hands and save a pollution-choked Taiwan.
