Union Square Kids

OVERVIEW
Scott nearly died playing Virtual Kombat—the virtual-reality fighting game that risks the lives of street kids for profit. Now Scott’s being hunted by Wasp drones! While on the run, he meets a gang of techno-hackers who share his wish to destroy VK. They’ve developed a virus that could do the job, but to implant it, Scott has to reenter the arena and risk being trapped inside the game forever . . .

PRAISE
“Featuring geometric spot-art images of attack drones and bladed weapons, this all-action U.K. import is written in staccato prose, presented in short, spaced-out sentences and paragraphs . . . . Like the opener, this episode ends with a twist that will have readers curious about picking up the next volume.”—Kirkus
