There was a book I read back in middle school (I'm 23 now) that I can't remember the name of and I've been trying to track it down for years.

From what I can remember (and my memory is not that good), it was about a guy playing a video game that took place in his town. It had him committing crimes but in the end the game turns on him and he watches the character in the computer screen go towards his house to kill him.

That's all I really remember. I think the book was fairly old when I read it; it looked like an old book and for a long time I even thought it was a Christopher Pike book, but I haven't been able to find it through him.

If anyone knows this book please let me know because I've been going crazy trying to find it.

  • Hi, welcome to the site. Roughly how old was the main character? Also, do you recall anything about the cover? Sep 13, 2022 at 20:58
  • I think he was a young kid. Maybe a pre teen or teenage. As for the cover i dont remember Sep 13, 2022 at 21:00
