In a time when a single billionaire wields nearly all of the power, virtual reality is the distraction, the fashion, and the entertainment of the hour.

When 16-year-old Liv from one of the poorest sectors in the nation manages to get into a prestigious internship program run by the world’s most powerful man, she finds his black sheep son is not the person she’s seen portrayed in the virtual world—he’s got heart and interest in righting the inequities of the world, and he might just capture HER heart, too.

Together, they begin to uncover the dirty and dangerous scheme at the heart of the Virch Empire, and their world begins to unravel.
