In the tradition of M. T. Anderson's Feed and Scott Westerfeld's Uglies, Unplugged is the first in a thrilling and provocative new series that Kass Morgan, New York Times bestselling author of The 100, called "chilling and addictive." Skylar Cruz still remembers the day she plugged in and joined the App World for the promise of a better life-the day she left her family behind in the Real World. Skylar is now a virtual teenager and even though she's surrounded by everything she ever dreamed about, she's never felt like she fits in and all she wants is to see her mother and sister again. Skye is desperate and ready to risk everything to unplug from the App World. But she soon learns that the only person she can trust-in either world, including friends and family-is herself.
