The Secret Society of Words
“Now everybody is a Van Gogh, because they can just use a painting app; everyone is Beethoven, because they can play music on their tablet. Nobody is a master because everyone is a master.”

Novels are not written but are rendered into interactive movies.
This is the world of fourteen-year-old Alathea Jones, whose discovers just how much humanity lost when technology took over.
