Soon, Elusion will change the world and life as we know it.

A new technology called Elusion is sweeping the country. An app, visor and wristband will virtually transport you to an exotic destination where adventure can be pursued without the complications-or consequences-of real life.
Regan is an Elusion insider. Or at least she used to be. Her father invented the program, and her best friend, Patrick, heir to the tech giant Orexis, is about to release it nationwide. But ever since her father's unexpected death, Regan can't bear to Escape, especially since waking up from the dream means crashing back to her grim reality.
Still, when there are rumors of trouble in Elusion--accusations that it's addictive and dangerous--Regan is determined to defend it. But the critics of Elusion come from surprising sources, including Josh, the handsome skeptic with his own personal stakes. As Regan investigates the claims, she discovers a disturbing web of secrets. She will soon have to choose between love and loyalty...a decision that will affect the lives of millions. (Summary from Goodreads)

This isn't your grandma's video game! :) Man, I could see how this technology could be addicting because who doesn't want to escape into another world sometimes? I can't wait to read it and see how the author's envision this technology.

Maisie Danger Brown just wanted to get away from home for a bit, see something new. She never intended to fall in love. And she never imagined stumbling into a frightening plot that kills her friends and just might kill her, too. A plot that is already changing life on Earth as we know it. There's no going back. She is the only thing standing between danger and annihilation. (Summary from Goodreads)

I adore Shannon Hale's writing, so I am ALL IN for this one! :) Plus I am completely intrigued now, aren't you!?

What are you waiting on this week?
