Forging a powerful team online, two gamers who do not realize that they attend the same middle school find their virtual and real lives turned upside down by an act of wrongdoing that challenges their partnership."Miles and Rhys know each other only as GRYPHON and BACKSLASH, and in the video game Mecha Melee they're an unstoppable team. They're the best friends they've got, online or in the real world. But real-life wrongdoing blasts their duo into a crater the size of Arcticon. With life online and off a complete mess and BattleCon--and the Every Game Ever tournament--just weeks away, can the boys play their way back to each other?"--Page  of cover.
