Told through a series of deleted computer files, direct messages, and secret recordings, this young adult sci-fi fantasy novel takes the reader through an “alien” reading experience. The main character, Kady, must be prepared to save her home planet as she pulls forth her hacking skills as well as brace up to the fact that the only person she can rely on is her ex-boyfriend. There is almost no other novel out there that allows for quite this type of reading experience to happen.
