Gabel (Romeo & Juliet & Vampires) and Klam (Learning to Swim) team up in this near-future tale of the seductive virtual world of Elusion, which people can plug into and escape the realities of a seven-day work schedule and pollution so bad oxygen masks are needed to venture outdoors. Regan Welch’s father invented Elusion and died in a mysterious accident, leaving her best friend, computer prodigy Patrick Simmons, and his Orexis corporation to develop the next generation of high-definition “Escapes.” Regan is a staunch defender of Patrick and his technology, despite allegations that it’s harmful and additive, until a series of cryptic clues from her late father, a number of teens turning up comatose, and hunky bad-boy Josh make her question Elusion’s safety. A predictable love triangle (childhood friend vs. Josh and his “devastatingly beautiful amber-colored eyes”), heavy exposition, and Regan’s obliviousness bog down the story’s second act, though corporate intrigue and a dangerous venture into the virtual realm enliven the cliffhanger ending. Ages 14–up. Agent: (for Gabel) Christy Fletcher, Fletcher & Company; (for Klam) Esther Newberg, ICM. (Mar.)
