-Life Inside the World of Status
Status is an on-line MMORPG (Massively Multiplayer On-line Role Playing Game) where popular players make money and get free items in exchange for advertising. The more status points a player scores the more contracts a player can win. Start off as Zombies (pre-human; economically challenged). Then choose your path. For players with a bit of Hollywood, Celebrity track is an excellent way to pick up some fast points. For strategists, you may want to consider the Political track. Either way due diligence will help you work your way up to Strider (human: credit card carrying, economic contributor). Players will gain Status Points by spreading rumors and/or succeeding in daily life.

-Life Outside of Status
Bob Brooks enters Madison High as an inexperienced teacher that should have never landed the full time teaching position he applied for. He has ulterior motives that have nothing to do with teaching, but everything to do with playing Status. Thinking his students will be easy pawns to gain popularity, Bob naively walks into unchartered territory and discovers a dangerous world without rules.

The game uses social media to spread rumors instantaneously. Vicious lies as well as untold truths destroy both friends and enemies. Nothing is sacred in a world where image is everything. Players stop at nothing to win points and increase their status in the hopes of becoming famous, maybe even wealthy.

Everyone is suspect in this thrilling adventure of social battles that pits brains versus brawn and haves versus have nots. Find out who wins! Oh and by the way, obtaining enough status might just make you the next big star of the Internet. With fame and fortune just a rumor away, who wouldn't want to play..."Status?"

Stay Strong! Stay Loyal!

Reviewed by Mamta Madhavan for Readers' Favorite Status: The Game by Vincent Robert Annunziato is an exciting story, original in its concept with a great story line. Bob Brooks is an inexperienced high school teacher who becomes popular with his students with the help of an online game. Bob Brooks has an ulterior motive of becoming rich too, but he finds that it is not going to be easy. The game Status is a dangerous online game, but it might make you famous. Now who wants to play this game? The plot is exhilarating and it targets an audience of all age groups. Bob's character as that of an Technology teacher and a gamer is relatable and the original story line will have readers hooked on the book. The story is a bit slow initially and then it becomes interesting. It is a perfect plot for the age we live in where children as well as adults are hooked on online gaming. It is indeed a refreshing idea to use this theme as the story line. I just fell in love with the plot and the characters. The hazards of technology and online gaming, and the harm that it causes have been captured by the author. Status is a book that tells us about what is going to come as we live in a world filled with technology and social websites. It teaches us a good lesson and I am sure readers will want to read the sequel when it comes out.
