#BookReview: As Worlds Drifted by @ParkerTiden

Synopsis: The FBI says Lily’s father killed himself to escape justice. As she deals with her grief, can a team of gamers help her prove them wrong? A gripping story about friendship, loss, and redemption, about a daughter’s love, and about finding one’s place in the world – all wrapped in a young-adult thriller package. A perfect blend of the funny and profound, as high school sophomore Lily tries, with some unexpected help, to find out what happened to her father. Something for Looking for AlaskaWarcross, and We Were Liars fans alike.

Lily’s world comes crashing down when her father dies in an apparent suicide. The official version is that her father was a criminal who took the easy way out. Lily doesn’t buy it, but can’t prove it. Instead she withdraws into her own darkness, stops talking to her friends, and misses her first day as a high school sophomore. When Nick, her neighbor that she hardly knows, pulls her into the gaming world, she is hooked. She meets her new tribe, and is drawn out of her darkness and into a new kind of light, into a new reality. Together they set out to find out what really happened to her father.

FBI agent Tristan Casco can’t stand the nerds he has to work with at the FBI’s Cyber Gaming Unit. Something happened during Tristan’s tour in Afghanistan that derails his career. He hasn’t seen his daughter in months and can’t seem to find the will to do much about it.

In As Worlds Drifted, Tristan's and Lily’s paths cross in an exhilarating online and offline adventure that gets deadly serious.
