Fast cars, friends and fame. Who needs a real life when you are a top-level racer in the online world?

Ben Cheng used to live the good life — he had wealthy parents, lots of friends and respect as an online gamer. But when his parents separated, he had to move to a small apartment with his mom, his dad was out of the picture, and his new schoolmates started teasing him for his family's fall from grace. All Ben has left is his virtual life, where he still reigns supreme as an online driver.

Ben's life starts to spin out of control when he takes his mom's car out for a joyride and gets caught. Then he's in even deeper trouble when his mom finds out he has charged expensive upgrades for his online car on her credit card without permission. When Ben's dad secretly starts emailing him, Ben gets his hopes up that everything will return to the way it once was — he just has to loan his dad the money to get to Ben's big tournament coming up. It's not until Ben's dad is a no-show that he finally realizes the effect that his dad's gambling addiction and his own gaming addiction have on his family and his life.

STEVEN SANDOR is an award-winning magazine editor, author and sports broadcaster. Although he has yet to master Formula 1 racing games without the cheats on, Steven explores the world of online car racing games in Spin Out, his first SideStreets book. Steven lives in Edmonton, Alberta.

"Spin Out (and other stories in the series) would be a perfect read for teens wanting a narrative they can connect with...a great book for school and public library collections, not just classrooms." - Resource Links

"An excellent book for those reluctant readers who need a solid story and relatable characters." ? Rated E, Excellent - Resource Links
