Fourteen-year-old Hannah is thrilled when her mother is elected the first female President of the United States. But joy turns to devastation when her best friend Sasha dies in a freak virtual reality accident while surfing the Grid, the world’s highly evolved electronic network.
Two months later and only seconds after Hannah’s mother takes the oath of office, a ghostly anonym appears at the inauguration. Hijacking every video screen, the anonym delivers an ultimatum. Hannah’s mother must resign within forty-eight hours or a powerful virus will destroy the Grid. The cyber-terrorist’s transmission yields only one clue, a digital signature
identical to one created by Hannah and Sasha. With less than two days to go, Hannah is recruited into NEST, a top-secret cyber spy agency located in a hidden basement of the White House. Using the tremendous power of the newly developed quantum computer, she takes to the virtual world to track down the terrorist and save her mother’s presidency. But, as she delves deeper into the Grid’s alternative universe, she uncovers a frightening connection
between her mother, the terrorist and her dead friend Sasha.
