Jason Segel and his co-writer Kirsten Miller are best known in the book world for their best-selling middle grade series Nightmares—but now the duo is branching into YA with Otherworld, the start of a new trilogy inspired by a game Segel played in his youth. 

There are no screens. There are no controls. You don't just see and hear it--you taste, smell, and touch it too. In this new reality, there are no laws to break or rules to obey. You can live your best life. Indulge every desire.  It's a game so addictive you'll never want it to end. Until you realize that you're the one being played. Welcome to Otherworld, where reality is dead. Step into the future. Leave your body behind. The frightening future that Jason Segel and Kirsten Miller have imagined is not far away. Otherworld asks the question we'll all soon be asking: if technology can deliver everything we want, how much are we willing to pay?
