Reviews

"In WIRED, a frighteningly believable story set in the not-too-distant future, technology has achieved its darkest promise, replacing human interactions and genuine experiences with virtual reality. Author Caytlyn Brooke has captured the devastating effects of addiction in a fast-paced, imaginative, and compelling story. WIRED is a scary story about the dangers of addiction, delivering a powerful lesson without feeling didactic. It is a great book for any teen or young adult." -- Catherine Thureson, Foreword Magazine

"A masterful tale about how easily addiction can take over even the most successful life and destroy it... Ms. Brooke has created a world that is so realistic in its complexity and the character's motivations, readers will find themselves reconsidering their own social media use. The path from first use to full addict is very realistic in terms of many types of real addictions. The pace, description, and details such as the foreshadowing is so well done readers will not be able to put this book down or forget this story anytime soon." -- InD'Tale Magazine

"Wow. Terrific story about a near future, examining whether we're controlling technology, or it's controlling us." -- LibraryThing Early Reviewers
