This young adult fiction is a rich and inventive dystopian future where people escape reality through digital immersion. A quest to solve a complex game where the prize is control of the digital world and immense fortune. Ready Player One by Ernest Cline Good Books, Books To Read, My Books, Ernest Cline Books, Ready Player One Book, Reading Lists, Book Lists, The Book, In This World

Ready Player One

Ready Player One by Ernest Cline is unlike anything else I've read, save for Neuromancer. Taking place in a world where people log into a pop-culture heavy, 80s loving virtual reality, this is one geeky read. Our hero is out to win the big prize left by the game's creator, but even a digital adventure can become life and death. To be read by anyone who wishes they could jump out of this world and into a brand new one. -Eric

Cecil County Public Library - Great Reads - Recommendation

The Bean Trees is one of my favorite books of all time. The language is direct, uncomplicated and heartfelt, like the main character, Taylor Greer. Taylor grows up in Kentucky, poor and ready to leave as soon as she's old enough. Determined to head west unattached and on her own, she soon finds herself taking in a young Cherokee girl. The further she drives, the more she learns about the importance of connections to other people and the value of reaching out. -Allison
