WENDY MASS is the New York Times bestselling author of thirty books for young readers, including the Schneider Family Book Award winner A Mango-Shaped Space, the bestselling Willow Falls and Candymakers series, and Bob (coauthored with Rebecca Stead). Lo & Behold is her graphic novel debut.
Twelve-year old Addie Brecker grew up believing that life is full of possibilities and wonder, until her mom’s terrible cycling accident and decline into addiction changed everything. The last thing Addie wants to do now is make a new friend. But when her dad’s summer job takes them across the country to Spring Haven University, she meets Mateo Vargas and finds herself caught up in the exciting new world of virtual reality. With the help of a headset, Addie has a way to escape her family troubles and spends her time scaling castle walls, dodging angry kittens, and seeing the world in whole new ways. That is, until the fictional world of video games leads her to neglect her real life and the people who want to be a part of it. Addie must work to right some wrongs . . . before it’s too late.
