Overview

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.

Nanowhere...is a love story with all the usual elements: rogue soldiers, computer hacking, tyranny, cryptography, hit-men with an affinity for rolled adhesives, rebellious skateboarders, and sentient billion-node self-organizing nanotech ghosts.

"Chris Howard has released an...interesting and well-written..sf thriller called Nanowhere along with a bunch of supplementary materials that purports to be the lab notes and publications of one of the book's characters..."
-Cory Doctorow, BoingBoing
