Overview

Fourteen year old Jing and her brother,fifteen year old Gyp Crawler, do whatever they must to survive in a place that is like "Vegas for Children." A place where enlistment-officers cruise for runaways to send off planet to labor camps. A place where the nice people in town want to buy children's glands and organs to stay young.

Jing and Gyp used to live a good life with their mother on the moon, but their father took them for a weekend visit and abandoned them years later on Earth in a dark arcade called Squirrels in Frankfurter Highlight, a 24 hour gamblers’ haven of vidmind games. Jing must save her brother from the arcade's ogre, Base, the biker-bouncer who hunts the boy to trade him for cash to the cruit-joes who will sell him as cheap offworld labor. A bad gamble costs Gyp his consciousness; now his mind is lost and locked inside a Gamm, the arcade's gaming machines, where bleeders lurk. Gyp can only be saved by Jing, but she's never before played a game in void link.
