I read a book that was science fiction in the future (nearish). It was about a kid who played a game and his school was hosted in VR. There was this massive VR wide scavenger hunt that the winner got control of the VR company. It was a decent length book and relatively new. Any ideas on what book it was?
I think there is another company that has groups that are trying to win for the company and they kill the main-chars guardian.
