Publisher's Summary

A computer-hacking teen. The girl who wants to save him. And a rogue mirror reflection that might be the death of them both.
In private, 17-year-old Brandon hacks bank accounts just for the thrill of it. In public, he looks like any other tattooed bad boy with a fast car and devil-may-care attitude. He should know: he's worked hard to maintain that fa├žade. With inattentive parents who move constantly from city to city, he's learned not to get tangled up in things like friends and relationships. So he'll just keep living like a machine, all gears and wires.
Then two things shatter his carefully-built image: Emma, the kind, stubborn girl who insists on looking beneath the surface - and the small matter of a mirror reflection that starts moving by itself. Not only does Brandon's reflection have a mind of its own, but it seems to be grooming him for something - washing the dye from his hair, yanking out his piercings, swapping his black shirts for... pastels. Then it tells him: it thinks it can live his life better, and it's preparing to trade places. And when it pulls Brandon through the looking-glass, not only will he need all his ill-gotten hacking skills to escape, but he's going to have to face some hard truths about who he's become. Otherwise he'll be stuck in a digital hell until he's old and gray, and Emma and his parents won't even know he's gone.

Cyberpunk at its best

Take a novel hacker concept, mix in some teenage angst along with A-type parental psychological issues and, finally, add a dollop of nanobots and be prepared for an enjoyable story telling tale.

This book is like Matrix for YA. It fills you with all the ideas of OMG this could be happening right now! Lots of action, interesting characters and just enough real tech references to hook you in right away.

Sequel please!
