To the reader it is clear from the start that Jaimee is living in a virtual world, but he is very young so everything is new and fascinating to him; he readily accepts and enjoys and learns from what is presented to him in this normal family life, but inevitably he grows up and notices when things aren't right. He already suspects what his sister reveals, but self-awareness and control don't make him happy. An intriguing look at some of the possibilities and abuses of virtual worlds, with plenty of interesting ideas about artificial intelligence, cloning, personality transfer, raising children, and more. This future isn't so far away.
