The blockbuster debut adult thriller from New York Times bestseller David Yoon. Three friends. One broken world.
And a quest to save it. 'A high-speed, edge of your seat adventure with stakes higher than you can measure' Sylvain Neuvel, author of SLEEPING GIANTS Sometimes you have to break the world in order to fix it... Max is fortunate enough to be employed by Wren, the world's most powerful social media company.
He works in a sprawling campus made of glass on a project so secret he can tell no one about it. But one day he discovers something sinister going on beneath the surface of the company. A terrible secret that makes him rethink not only his work but also the true consequences of modern technology.
When Max is fired from Wren for asking the wrong questions, he joins up with his two best friends to form Version Zero, a top-secret group with a simple goal: break the internet and build something better and kinder in its place... 'With Version Zero David Yoon holds up a mirror to our ways of life, our hardships and vulnerabilities. As he lures us into the story of a smart, naive young man's desire to make the world a better place, the mirror turns black.
This propulsive, visceral, tech-rich tale is both all head and all heart , which is to say, it's all David Yoon' Caroline Kepnes, author of You
