Praise for Wired:

Wired_Caytlyn_Brooke.jpg“In Wired, a frighteningly believable story set in the not-too-distant future, technology has achieved its darkest promise, replacing human interactions and genuine experiences with virtual reality.

Author Caytlyn Brooke has captured the devastating effects of addiction in a fast-paced, imaginative, and compelling story. Wired is a scary story about the dangers of addiction, delivering a powerful lesson without feeling didactic. It is a great book for any teen or young adult.” —Foreword Reviews Magazine

“A masterful tale about how easily addiction can take over even the most successful life and destroy it… Ms. Brooke has created a world that is so realistic in its complexity and the character’s motivations, readers will find themselves reconsidering their own social media use. The path from first use to full addict is very realistic in terms of many types of real addictions. The pace, description, and details such as the foreshadowing is so well done readers will not be able to put this book down or forget this story anytime soon.” —InD’Tale Magazine

“With a plot line that could be torn from tomorrow’s newspaper headlines, Wired by Caytlyn Brooke deftly explores in a fictional format what advances in virtual reality technology could well make real as a social and health problem in another decade or so. An original and riveting read from cover to cover, Wired is unreservedly recommended…” —Midwest Book Review

“…a powerful story that resonates with brutal honesty of tech addictions experienced by so many people today; this book has a powerful message that speaks volumes to YA audiences. Recommended for home and school libraries, Wired has earned the Literary Classics Seal of Approval.” —Children’s Literary Classics
