A group of kids faces the dark side of the Internet
Mara Turing is about to start her summer vacation when she receives a mysterious message: “I need your help.”
The enigmatic call comes from his uncle, Arnold Turing —a member of the dangerous cracker group Dirtee Loopers—, who vanished without leaving a trace when she was only five years old and who is supposed to be dead!
His absence left her with an emptiness that marked her childhood.
Soon, Mara and her friends will understand why the Internet is not only a playground.
