    Ready Player One by Ernest Cline

    The world has turned into a very bleak place, but luckily there is OASIS, a virtual reality world. People can plug into OASIS to play, go to school, earn money, and even meet other people. Along with millions of other, protagonist Wade Watts dreams of finding three keys left behind by James Halliday, the now-deceased creator of OASIS. The keys are rumored to be hidden inside OASIS and whoever finds them will inherit Halliday's fortune. But Halliday has not made it easy. And there are real dangers in this virtual world.

    Heads Up: This book has a suggested reading audience of 7-12th grade.
