Doomed by Tracy Deeds

Synopsis (From Goodreads): Beat the game. Save the world.

Pandora’s an average teen, glued to her cell phone and laptop, until the day her long-lost father sends her a link to a mysterious site featuring photos of her as a child.

No traffic lights, hospitals or law enforcement. Only Pandora’s Box, a virtual-reality game created by Pandora’s father, remains up and running. Together with her neighbors, gorgeous stepbrothers Eli and Theo, Pandora must follow the photographs from her childhood in an attempt to beat the game and track down her father—and rescue the world.

Bumped by Megan McCafferty

Mmm, satire. How I heart thee… and I kind of heart this book, because it’s filled to the brim with the beauty that is satirical writing.
