Truth be told, Alex doesn't need to go pro as bad as he needs to grow up, and what teen really wants to do that? He's popular with other gamers but his over-inflated ego makes him obnoxious to almost everyone else. He hides a deep secret--the cavernous void in his life that nothing seems to fill. He thrives on a false sense of accomplishment but is haunted by an inescapable sense of loneliness. He has lived in the shadow of his dad's relentless pursuit of building a tech empire while watching him fail to keep his family from falling apart. What will it take for Alex to gain a new perspective on what it means to become a man and what it takes to be a hero?
Everything changes when Alex goes missing. He must face a life or death struggle in a foreign culture that doesn't have a power grid. Man or computer mouse? His digital world didn't prepare him for the challenges that are about to confront him. Alex is not ready to rescue anyone, he needs to be rescued. For those who really know Alexander, why would anyone want to save him? This coming-of-age story follows Alex as he is forced to grow up the hard way through extraordinary circumstances, which cause him to re-evaluate what's important in life, his need for God, and the positive influence of older mentors.
