Dragon Ops

Dragon Ops by Mari Mancusi

The narrator, with his sister and cousin, is off to adventure -- at the new virtual theme park based on his favorite video game, Fields of Fantasy, not even open yet.

He meets a girl as they arrive, but is assured there are no beta players still there, and talks with a dragon that he should not have been able to.

Things go haywire, and all three of them are trapped in the game, to face rats, dragons, side quests and sneak quests, heights (despite his fear of them), questions of online identity, and more.
