From the author of Juno & Juliet, a virtual-reality-obsessed teenage boy is caught in a collision between his parents' high-tech careers, and his choices will alter the balance between technological progress and human life as we know it.

In a world run by computers, hackers have power—and awkward, homeschooled Colt is among the best. But when Colt secretly submits his mother Naomi's breakthrough research to a biotech conference, and it is immediately shut down, mother and son are forced to go on the run. Now Colt is coding for his life.
     As the military, and Colt's father, hunt them through a Las Vegas of self-driving cars and surveillance drones, Naomi has to decide how far she will go to protect her child. Can she kill a man? Can she destroy the world? And Colt is finally forced to leave the comfort of virtual reality and face his greatest terror: love.
     The world is evolving; humans need to evolve too . . .
     For readers of William Gibson, Ready Player One, and Naomi Alderman's The Power, Connect is a page-turning novel of ideas that thrillingly explores what connection—both human and otherwise—might be in a digital age.
JULIAN GOUGH is the author of Juno & Juliet, Jude: Level 1, and Jude in London (the latter two published only in the UK). He is also the author of the end poem for the hugely popular game Minecraft. He lives in Berlin.
