Hi everyone,

I still need any help you can give regarding the following book description. It is none of the following. She said it is not part of a series, and she thinks the author's first name might be Michael or start with an M. 

Happy Tuesday everyone!


"I got a response back from someone at the Augusta Public Library suggesting the following options:
“Alterworld (Play to Live series), by D. Rus:
The Eye of Minds (The Mortality Doctrine series), by James Dashner: 
The Otherland Series by Tad Williams : 
Ready Player One, by Ernest Cline:”

Subject: Need help figuring out title/author

Hi everyone!

One of our users is looking for a book, doesn't know the title or author. It is possibly a YA book. It was possibly published after 2006. It is a sci-fi/fantasy book about a few people who are in capsules in a coma. They are in a video game while in the coma. One of the characters imagines he is jumping off a building so that he can kill his "video game" self. Then one of the characters starts to have mental disabilities from the video game.

Thanks for any help!
