Overview

Cyberia by Chris Lynch


From National Book Award nominee Chris Lynch, the third action-and-humor-filled futuristic series about talking pets who are tired of being pets ... and the boy who must help them.

Zane and his animal comrades have foiled Dr. Gristle's terrible plots twice--he can't talk to animals, and he can't get at the heart of what makes them wild. Zane can talk to them. He can understand them. He almost is one. Almost.
Zane keeps getting in Dr. Gristle's way though - and he's being sent as far out of the way as Gristle can get him. In fact, he's being sent right into the middle of a new plot of the bad doctor's--and in his new, utterly foreign surroundings, he's entirely too human.

Zane lives in the future where everything is networked and microchipped, computers are responsible for telling you when you need to go to the bathroom, telling you what you're temperature is, adjusting your food so you're not gassy, and performing other such daily functions. His parents are wired, too, but he never gets to see them unless he has an appointment. When Zane receives a gizzard chip that synchronizes all of his information feeds, he starts picking up on extra information. With only his dog, Hugo, for companionship, Zane is excited to be able to understand his dog's speech. Hugo, however, starts telling Zane about how Dr. Gristle, the vet who put the dog's microchip in, has been performing twisted techno-experiments on animals in hopes of harnessing their abilities for government use - and that Zane is the only one who can rescue them. With technology that can be tapped in to and watch your every move, will Zane manage to rescue the animals? A great, fast-paced adventure for technology junkies. The characters are well-developed, and the story is unique and gripping. Readers who like science fiction, adventure, and action will like reading CYBERIA.
