Black Mirror meets My So-Called Life in this fast-paced, timely YA thriller about separating fact from fiction-and how far we'll go to create our own version of reality.

Like any other teenager, Jess Flynn is just trying to get through her junior year without drama . . . but drama seems to keep finding her. Between a new crush on her childhood best friend, overprotective parents cramping her social life, and her younger sister's worsening health, the only constant is change-and her hometown of Swickley, which feels smaller by the day.

Swickley is getting weirder by the day, too. Half the population has been struck down by a mysterious flu. Conversations end awkwardly when Jess enters the room. And then one day, a tiny, sleek black device-with an apple logo on it-falls out of her best friend's backpack and lands at Jess's feet.

But the year is 1998, and the first iPhone won't exist for another nine years.
