Sixteen-year-old Jaxon is being committed to video game rehab . . .
ten minutes after he met a girl. A living, breathing girl named
Serena, who not only laughed at his jokes but actually kinda sorta
seemed excited when she agreed to go out with him.
Jaxon's first date. Ever.
In rehab, he can't blast his way through galaxies to reach her. He
can't slash through armies to kiss her sweet lips. Instead, he has
just four days to earn one million points by learning real-life
skills. And he'll do whatever it takes—lie, cheat, steal, even learn
how to cross-stitch—in order to make it to his date.
If all else fails, Jaxon will have to bare his soul to the other teens
in treatment, confront his mother's absence, and maybe admit that it's
more than video games that stand in the way of a real connection.
Prepare to be cured.

He published a short story called “There Are No Marshmallows in Camelot” on Cast of Wonders and co-created a website called the Foxing Bureau. He’s never met a cute girl at a car wash, but he does live with the love of his life in Salt Lake City, Utah . . . and he often wonders how in the hell he did it. Cure for the Common Universe is his first novel. Learn more at cmheidicker.com.
