About The Book:
Tyler MacCandless can’t focus, even when he takes his medication. Tyler’s dad is dead, his mom has mentally checked out and his brother, Brandon, is in rehab for heroin abuse…again. The only person he can really count on is his Civilian Air Patrol Mentor, Rick. The one thing in life it seems he doesn’t suck at is playing video games and, well, that’s probably not going to get him into college.
Just when it seems like his future is on a collision course with a life sentence at McDonald’s, Rick asks him to test a video game and Tyler thinks his life might finally be turning around.
That is, until Brandon goes MIA from rehab and Tyler and he discovers that the game is more than it seems. Now Tyler will have to figure out what’s really going on in time to save his brother… and prevent his own future from going down in flames.
Praise for Playing Tyler
I found the story to be fascinating, and a little sad at times. But the fact that the author can evoke such emotions, to me, is a sign of a good storyteller.
"Playing Tyler" is just one of the many wonderful books being highlighted this summer by BookSparks PR with their Summer Reading Road Trip promotion. Click here to learn more - http://www.booksparkspr.com/src2013/
