)-- Data theft is on the rise, yet millions continue to trade their privacy for the convenience mobile technology provides. Self-driving cars loom on the horizon. How long before mobile devices are hardwired to our brains? A new book for young adults addresses the true price Millennials might pay for too much tech.
About the Book
Are you a "Jimmiehead," or are you still using one of those old-fashioned smartphones? Jimmies are tiny microchips, that when painlessly implanted into your brain, magically transform your eyes and ears into the ultimate hands-free device.
Every teen wants one—except 16-year-old Amy, who detests technology in any form. But when thousands of Jimmieheads mysteriously vanish, only she can save them. Immune to Jimmie's influence, Amy’s search for the missing teens reveals an ominous connection between the bizarre disappearances and the Fun Zone—a spooky amusement park that's been dark for 50 years!

Along the way she observes the dark side of human nature, wherein lies the root cause of all the world's problems.
