This book is set in England, only a few years into the future. England is very different though - because of Vurt Feathers. They are drugs that induce virtual reality. The story follows Scribble, and by extension his group of friends called the Stash Riders. Scribble is searching for a way to get his love out from a Feather where she has been imprisoned. I absolutely loved this book - it's really quite weird & all, but it's brilliant. There is a strong theme of incest, which could squick some readers; it's comparative to the 'Flowers In The Attic' series in that respect. If that doesn't bother you & you are into sci-fi, this book might really appeal to you.
