Monica Hughes (Author). I first read this book back in middle school, when I had purchased it at a book fair. First titled Invitation to the Game this is the story of a futute world where jobs are scarce and new graduates band together to survive in a ghetto-like city. Invited to play a virtual reality game, the six friends become enmeshed in using their talents to win at the game. The game turns real and they all must work together to survive. I have since reread it so many times, the book is losing it's binding.
Monica Hughes was the author of over 35 novels. Monica Hughes grew up in London, Cairo, and Edinburgh.

I voted for this book, and I will not be surprised if it wins. This is the suspenseful and heartwarming story of a boy on the island of Ariban who discovers a shipwrecked girl who washed up on the shore. She was Jennifer, the storyteller, who brought with her a box of stories. The land was Ariban, a place where imagination is forbidden, stories are outlawed, and dreams must die before morning. In this story, the boy must chose between the love of a friend, and the honour of his family.
