26. Epic by Conor Kostick

            This YA-level novel carries us into the future on New Earth.  The society there is controlled by playing a fantasy adventure game called Epic.  Societal standing is derived by how well you play the game.  There is a problem though.  Somehow all the resources go to Central Allocations and the small outlying areas are breaking down.  From the breakdown families are “reallocated” so that they can be more productive as a whole, thereby breaking families apart from everything they have ever known.  Erik gets mad about the reallocation of his family and decides to do something about it.  If only he could make enough money to challenge the Committee.  He comes up with a brilliant plan to slay the dragon, refurbish his town, and make enemies of the planets’ ruling body.  Will he be able to save his family or is everyone out to get him?
