Like anyone who feels as though they just don't fit in, Evie dreams of a place of safety. When times are tough, all she wants is a chance to escape from reality and be herself.

Despite his failing health, Evie's father comes close to creating such a virtual idyll. Passing away before it's finished, he leaves her the key in the form of an app, and Evie finds herself transported to a world where the population is influenced by her personality. Everyone shines in her presence, until her devious cousin, Mallory, discovers the app... and the power to cause trouble in paradise.

I, personally didn't like the plot. The only character liked was Unity.

It gets a bit heavy handed but I really liked it anyway. It was only a matter of time before someone took the "there's an app for that"mentality and applied it to bullying and escaping from it.

Evie is the school outcast, even her cousin treats her terribly. She lives alone with her terminally ill father who is a software designer. Evie doesn't even get a break from torment when she's at home thanks to the wonders of the internet. Dear old Dad decides to make a safe space for her. Somewhere for her to recharge and get strong enough to face her difficult day.

Trust a bully to ruin it.

Evie's got a lot to handle but she does handle it and support comes from unlikely places. It's a great story, I do wish the end had been a little bit stronger, but it's a great read (you really feel on edge when Evie's space becomes threatened) and I think a lot of people are going to see a lot of themselves in it too.
