Publisher's Summary

The blockbuster debut adult thriller from New York Times best-selling author David Yoon. 

Three friends. One broken world. And a quest to save it. 

Sometimes you have to break the world in order to fix it....

Max is fortunate enough to be employed by Wren, the world’s most powerful social media company. He works in a sprawling campus made of glass on a project so secret he can tell no one about it.

But one day, he discovers something sinister going on beneath the surface of the company. A terrible secret that makes him rethink not only his work but also the true consequences of modern technology.

When Maxi is fired from Wren for asking the wrong questions, he joins up with his two best friends to form Version Zero, a top-secret group with a simple goal: break the internet and build something better and kinder in its place....

Critic Reviews

"A high-speed, edge-of-your-seat adventure with stakes higher than you can measure, told in David Yoon’s unique and singularly engaging prose. Version Zero is an addictive, brain-hacking exploration of the tech-run world we live in, and a roller coaster so fast it will blow your hair off." (Sylvain Neuvel, author of Sleeping Giants)

"Version Zero is fast and fun, but, more importantly, it’s an incisive, thoughtful takedown of Big Tech, our own social media consumption, and ultimately, may just serve as a call to arms." (Rob Hart, author of The Warehouse)

"David Yoon’s adult debut Version Zero is the Silicon Valley story of your nightmares." (Entertainment Weekly)

we all know about the data harvesting that goes on in the background on the Internet.
Do you just click or do you read what you sign up to? The Internet knows more about us than we want it to but we still use it.
The novel raises this issue and more asking us to think about who is in control of our information.
