|Plot Summary of Invitation to the Game|
|"It is the year 2154 and all jobs are done by robots. Lizzie and her friends are unemployed when they graduate and are assigned to an unemployed neighborhood. They form a life for themselves there, doing art and other jobs to get extra money. Then an invitation to a game in another part of the city shows up and, following it, they find a virtual reality world which they explore. Every time they play the game seems more and more realistic, until they find themselves actually on the planet in the game, having to hunt, live through sicknesses, and build their own society."
