Kiki is a Year Eleven student in Jakarta, Indonesia. Her super-strict parents have moved her from her liberal high school where she was happy and popular to an extremely elite, expensive and highly acclaimed High School, much to her disdain.
Whereas in her previous school, students did not have to stand up in class to greet the teacher and were not sent to the principal’s office for calling someone a twat, Kiki is required to do so at her new school. Her only solace in her increasingly miserable world, is playing an online game called Warfront Heroes. Kiki plays as a male as she received online hate when she identified as a female playing this game. However, she didn’t expect to make her best friend in this online world and then to discover that he goes to her new school.
Can she find out who her best friend is, when he is not online, while keeping her identity a secret? And what will the consequences be in terms of the sexism inherent in her new school?
With an appealing protagonist and a sparky tone this is a hugely entertaining read.
