This Way Lies Mayhem
First they banned her. Then they hunted her. Now that they caught her, 18-year-old Alex is forced to tell the story of how she joined an underground movement to re-establish the user rights and privacy laws that we, the generation of her great-grandparents, allowed to be taken away. A 21-day net ban for using an illegal tracking-blocker on her comm turns Alex into a social pariah faster than she can say “Department of Global Net & Communication Affairs”. Not long after she learns that things will never be back to normal for her. To escape the government and corporation watch lists she is now on, Alex joins charismatic Shim and his group of idealists in their fight against the lack of privacy, online and offline. But as fun as setting up a secret network and smashing spy cams as part of the fierce “anti-cheerleaders” initially is, Alex soon finds that there are different agendas at work within the group. And the playful opposition just as soon turns into deadly reality.
