Kaffia Lang's an experienced hacker. She's cautious, but her inability to turn down any network cracking challenge often leads her and anyone with her into danger. Alex, a geeky skater, new at school, works his way into the mysterious technological world she's created. He doesn't know whether he loves her or fears her, but he's forced to choose when he finds himself caught in a tangle of revenge, and Kaffia's life hangs on every decision he makes.
