Newest Young Adult Non-fiction Book:
In Real Life by Cory Doctorow
[book cover]

Anda loves Coarsegold Online, the MMO role-playing game that she spends most of her free time on.

It's a place where she can be a leader, a fighter, a hero. It's a place where she can meet people from all over the world and make friends.

Things become a lot more complicated when Anda befriends a gold farmer, a poor Chinese kid whose avatar in the game illegally collects valuable objects and then sells them to players from developed countries with money to burn. This behavior is strictly against the rules in Coarsegold, but Anda soon comes to realize that questions of right and wrong are a lot less straightforward when a real person's livelihood is at stake.

Available in paperback.
