Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-seller.

The brand-new official Minecraft novel is an action-packed thriller! When a new virtual-reality version of the game brings her dreams - and doubts - to life, one player must face her fears. Bianca has never been good at following the plan. She’s more of an act-now, deal-with-the-consequences-later kind of person. But consequences can’t be put off forever, as Bianca learns when she and her best friend, Lonnie, are in a terrible car crash. Waking up in the hospital, almost paralyzed by her injuries, Bianca is faced with questions she’s not equipped to answer. She chooses instead to try a new virtual-reality version of Minecraft that responds to her every wish, giving her control over a world at the very moment she thought she’d lost it. 

As she explores this new realm, she encounters a mute, glitching avatar she believes to be Lonnie. Bianca teams up with Esme and Anton, two kids who are also playing on the hospital server, to save her friend.

But the road to recovery isn’t without its own dangers. The kids are swarmed by mobs seemingly generated by their fears and insecurities, and now Bianca must deal with the uncertainties that have been plaguing her: Is Lonnie really in the game?

And can Bianca help him return to reality?

YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA😻🙀😺😻🙀😻😺😺😸😸😸

I didnt know i was going to like this book from the time I started listening. From the car accident, to the hospital, to the part where AJ comes into the story, I was kind of bored, cause im just a kid, I thought it was too deep. Then when Bianca gets to Minecraft, I knew i was wrong. I LOVE MINECRAFT so I knew this book was gonna be a good story. The names of characters are imaginative, and uncommon. I had never heard of the names of the names Bianca, Lawny, Anton and that other girl who FREEKS OUT a lot.
I loved this story so much. As i am writing this, i am listening to the story. My favorite part of the story is the enderman with the scar. I also like how music plays during the story. That makes it sound more real, but it is kinda distracting. What ever. I loved this. Listen to it. You will too.

Have you read The Island?

12 year olds don't say rivulet or ankst and the litany of other words these sad children say... and talk about beyond depressing storyline - this wasn't much of a Minecraft book, more of a grief and depression counselling session for kids disquised poorly using vague references to the game, ignoring most of the actual game play physics completely in order to make it seem more "epic". Narrator had nice voice changes for the characters however lol

I don,t like the scary music, it scares me, and strongholds are useshully in deserts.

DEPRESSING SPOILERS

I came in to this book expecting an escape like the island. biy was I wrong. this somehow touches on PTSD. cancer. brain surgery. car crashes. and freaking death. I never expected something like this from minecraft. ever.

Less about minecraft, and more about therapy

I felt that this was a big step down from the previous book. this is less about Minecraft and more about a girl dealing with a traumatic event. Everything from how the game works, to the mobs in the game, is all twisted to fit the narrative. I couldn't even finish this one without speeding it up. I was very disappointed. if you are looking for a Teenage tragedy/drama with a slight tie to video games, then this is for you, otherwise....just skip it.

Not accurate.

As a Minecraft enthusiast, this book frustrates me. Seems like the author didn't research Minecraft enough before writing. Some examples of this are as follows: you can't shoot a witch or enderman with arrows. Zombie pigman are neutral until provoked. They had a shulker box but yet hadn't been to The End yet. There's no laying down or sitting in Minecraft. Next time research a subject a little more. I didn't even finish this book and if I could, would request a refund.

Great for families

My 8 year old son and I enjoyed listening to this together, and discussed our theories about the story when not listening to it.
