Things are about to get real.

Josh is a gamer. After his parents' divorce and his move from Chicago to a small town where he doesn't know anybody, he copes by staying up way too late playing Killswitch online. Then he discovers a "mod" version of the game that is an exact reproduction of his new town. Strange things start to happen in the game, and they are somehow connected with events in the real world.

Sean Rodman is the child of two anthropologists, who gave him a keen eye for observation and a bad case of wanderlust. His interest in writing for teenagers came out of working at schools around the world, including the Snowy Mountains of Australia, where he taught ancient history to future Olympic athletes. When not working on his own books, Sean works with The Story Studio, a charity that is dedicated to getting kids excited about writing. He lives in Victoria, British Columbia.

"Readers, reluctant and avid alike, will be quickly drawn into Josh's lonely world…It reads almost too quickly." - School Library Journal

"Rodman is a capable storyteller, and the portrayals of high school kids is quite good—there is no whiff of 'hello, fellow kids'-type failed attempts to capture the youth of today in this book. With good pacing and an interesting plot, Firewall will appeal to reluctant teen readers." - CM Magazine

"Firewall zips along without sacrificing character development or writing quality…A gripping read that doesn't underestimate the intelligence of its reader." - Resource Links
