The first book I read by Vande Velde was called _User Unfriendly_ and was
also about virtual reality (sort of). It left me with a distaste for her
books for years, mainly because I was playing computer games AND roleplaying
games at the time and recognized where she hadn't done her homework. Too
bad, because she's a decent writer and tells interesting stories. I later
read _The Changeling Prince_ and enjoyed it much more.
