Alicia is president of the Chaos Computer Club, and a sixth grader at Genius Middle School. She is a fast-talking, wisecracking, know-it-all hacker who goes by the handle, White-Rabbit. Alicia blames computer-gnomes for eating her homework even though she believes the magical beasties are a myth in folk tales. Then one evening, comes a lightning storm to end all storms. Computer-gnomes kidnap Alicia and turn her into a tiny, virtual girl. Now, she is lost inside the computer. Time is running out. A virus will scorch Alicia, unless she can escape the labyrinth of technology. As the clock ticks down, Alicia will seek the help of a video games thief, a hacking legend named Caterpillar, a ghost, and cyber pirates.

The story is part Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Fairy Tale. The novel is smart, edgy, and unique.Belinda Vasquez Garcia is a former software engineer / computer programmer / web developer and award-winning novelist.
