Unison Spark by Andy Marino
The world is divided in to the privileged, who live above the canopy in the Eastern Seaboard City and have access to Unison (like a virtual Facebook), and those who live below the canopy and can barely get a signal strong enough to run a cell phone. These worlds collide when Ambrose Truax, son of the inventor of Unison, wanders into the subcanopy world and Mistletoe saves him from the men who are chasing him. Ambrose has no idea how to protect himself in this world and it falls to Mistletoe to teach him. But first they have to rid themselves of all the tracking devices that Unison has implanted. As their friendship evolves, they discover they share an odd, disturbing dream. As they unravel the meaning of the dream they discover they are involved in a much bigger mystery than they thought. I might have liked this story better if I'd had a clue what was happening. Too much techno jargon that didn't add to the story.
