Shy college student Shih Yi-Yu is invited to an exclusive VR summer camp by the class heartthrob.

Shih Yi-Yu is a shy college student would rather eat than talk to people – especially to Feng Yueh, the class heartthrob. Thus, when Feng Yueh approaches her before class with an invitation to the exclusive “Recall” VR summer camp, she refuses to believe her ears.

 

Summer camp turns out to be a much more immersive and more fraught experience than she expected. She is repeatedly placed inside a virtual world designed like a cheap romance novel, in which she is the female protagonist – the powerful executive’s cute secretary, the warrior’s younger sister, et cetera. To survive and advance, she must recruit as many other characters as she can while avoiding the subterfuge of her enemies. Yet the more the environment changes, the more it stays the same, and a chilly sense of foreboding gradually overtakes her.…

 

In this highly engaging and easily relatable tale, author Ping Hsu sends familiar protagonists into uncharted territory. Follow along as personalities you thought you knew – the diffident male love interest, the repressed female lead – come into their own in new, untried worlds in which imagination is the only limit.
