    I read this book back in junior high, I think, and I liked it enough that it s still on my bookshelf The idea of the book is that they ve developed a holodeck like virtual reality experience and the book points out that, in Star Trek, the holodeck is used for recreational purposes once in a while like people reading books or watching TV , but in real life, people would use this invention instead of living their actual lives In the background of this message is a story about a bunch of high s I read this book back in junior high, I think, and I liked it enough that it s still on my bookshelf The idea of the book is that they ve developed a holodeck like virtual reality experience and the book points out that, in Star Trek, the holodeck is used for recreational purposes once in a while like people reading books or watching TV , but in real life, people would use this invention instead of living their actual lives In the background of this message is a story about a bunch of high school students who are thinking about what they want to do with their lives The characters are well developed and despite their completely different personalities, become friends through the common experience of using the Night Room Plus, there s the life threatening mystery going on around them.Despite the fact that was written in the 90s, it doesn t have that anachronistic Baby Sitters Club like feel to it I liked it in the 90s, and I still like it there aren t that many YA books I can say that about

    I liked it though some things made no sense like the ending made me think there would be a part 2 to this book and some things got me confused too

    I decided to read this book because of the dedication to the crews of the Starships Enterprise Since I have accompanied my husband in viewing very MANY episodes of Star Trek where not so many women have gone before I thought this just might be the book for us It did have an interesting premise a high school health class is offered the opportunity to participate in a computer program that allows them to experience their ten year high school reunion and see what their future will be like I decided to read this book because of the dedication to the crews of the Starships Enterprise Since I have accompanied my husband in viewing very MANY episodes of Star Trek where not so many women have gone before I thought this just might be the book for us It did have an interesting premise a high school health class is offered the opportunity to participate in a computer program that allows them to experience their ten year high school reunion and see what their future will be like However, I never felt that the characters ever really got fleshed out and the ending was predictable even though I did have to explain it to my husband something I also had to do after we saw the first Star Trek movie Maybe this book did what it intended, afterall Oh yeah, I also really like the about the author paragraph E.M Goldman became a writer so she could sit in a small room all day and stare at a computer screen She is very pale

    I reread this book and wonder why it, and another of the author s books, Getting Lincoln s Goat, are notpopular Who wouldn t want to see ten years in the future Seven high school students are invited to participate in an experimental program but the results are unexpected when they try and learn what happened to one of their classmates Suspense, a bit of romance, and memorable, if stereotypical, characters create an enjoyable read.

    I had read this book originally back in Middle School I believe I had forgotten much of the story since then This is an intriguing story about when virtual reality crosses a fine line with real life Would you prefer to live happily in a dream or go through life s ups and downs with actual people

    Pretty decent read Would have been done sooner had I not been reading 2 books at the same time I liked the homage to Star Trek I m a fan of the show myself I also enjoyed the twist ending I wouldn t call this an absolute favorite, but I d check other titles from this author Short stories makes for great rainy day reads.

    This book was really good and I read it a while back, but I remember how weird it was The science probably wasn t exact, but what did I know All I cared about was the plot development and story line that was easily one of the best books I read in elementary school.
