Baker & Taylor
A socially-isolated teenager, Evie often wishes she could escape from reality, but when her father creates a virtual world for her, she is forced to save it from descending into chaos.

Perseus Publishing

The first book by YouTube star Joe Sugg tells the story of Evie, a socially-isolated teenage girl who struggles to fit in at high school. Always looking for a way to escape, she spends her nights supporting her terminally-ill father, who is tirelessly working on a computer program. When her father passes away, Evie is forced to live with her aunt, uncle, and cousin—Mallory—who is the most popular girl in school and the bane of Evie's existence.

One night, as she's going through her father's computer, Evie stumbles on a strange file that sucks her into a virtual world. As Evie explores this strange, new land, she learns it was the project her father was working so tirelessly on: a virtual Eden where Evie can get away and be herself. However, Evie is not alone; Mallory also discovers the world and her presence causes the idyll to descend into chaos. Now Evie must save the virtual world or lose her last connection to her father.

I, personally didn't like the plot. The only character liked was Unity.

It gets a bit heavy handed but I really liked it anyway. It was only a matter of time before someone took the "there's an app for that"mentality and applied it to bullying and escaping from it.

Evie is the school outcast, even her cousin treats her terribly. She lives alone with her terminally ill father who is a software designer. Evie doesn't even get a break from torment when she's at home thanks to the wonders of the internet. Dear old Dad decides to make a safe space for her. Somewhere for her to recharge and get strong enough to face her difficult day.

Trust a bully to ruin it.

Evie's got a lot to handle but she does handle it and support comes from unlikely places. It's a great story, I do wish the end had been a little bit stronger, but it's a great read (you really feel on edge when Evie's space becomes threatened) and I think a lot of people are going to see a lot of themselves in it too.
