Addie joins her father on a six-week business trip to Spring Haven University where he's involved with a virtual reality lab. Addie has been struggling with her mother's absence (revealed late in the book that she is in prison for counterfeiting prescriptions and selling drugs) and isn't really interested in socializing with other kids her age, including Mateo, their neighbor down the hall. After experiencing the virtual reality projects her father's students are working on, Addie can't contain her wonder and awe and escapes into various virtual worlds whenever she can. Eventually she and Mateo team up to create a VR project to help distract kids during their cancer treatments, and Addie learns it's not so painful to connect with others. Readers will be intrigued to explore more about VR and will empathize with Addie's evolution from withdrawn to embracing.… (mere)

Review
After reading the Lost Library by Wendy Mass and Rebecca Stead, I really wanted to explore some of their other works. This book was truly a heartwarming graphic novel and is perfect for middle grade readers. It discusses many challenging topics from drug abuse, and cancer to single parent households. The integration of modern technology and Virtual Reality as a tool to escape from the challenges of reality was brilliant.

This book would do well with a sister text and research on virtual reality. A book such as, Virtual Reality by Jack Challoner or Virtual Reality Gaming by Betsy Rathburn would provide more background knowledge to the reader about the technology behind virtual reality tools. Through the graphics you could see in Lo and Behold how much it takes to design, more science knowledge would be beneficial to the reader for context.
