This is a tale of mischief, a tale of adventure in a satellite above North America, where we meet the little creatures that cause all the mischief on the internet. When your grammar is wrong in a tweet when your spelling has been changed in a text message, it was a grembot, Why do they mess with autocorrect, no one knows it's just what they do.
In this tale of mischief, we meet Pat, a brilliant student who is awarded a desperately needed scholarship to attend a university. She excels in all her classes but one, Computer Science. She is the worst, she blows up every computer she touches, and because of the property damage, she may lose her scholarship. To help her Pat's professor gives her a notebook to study from which ultimately sends her to a satellite where she meets a grembot named Rem. Rem has his own troubles of life and deletion, he asks Pat for her help and offers his in return and a friendship grows. Until Pat learns Rem has been lying to her. With their friendship fractured and their fates hanging in the balance, will Pat keep her scholarship, and what will happen to Rem?
About the author
Alyssa A. Means, known to friends as Ally, is a Black American author, musician, with a passion for politics. She was born in Houston, Texas and lived there for all of her youth. She attended colleges in San Antonio and historically Black university Prairie View A&M. She graduated from Texas State University, where she gained her nickname Ally after being overly annoyed at the lack of respect in the pronunciation of her given name. No, it is not said how you think. She now resides in Austin, Texas, where she knows what to expect, great music, friendly people and so much family. Unbeknownst to young Alyssa, her family has a rich legacy of Civil Rights and barrier-breaking, which explains the political activism in her blood. She was once a delegate for then candidate Barack Hussein Obama, she has marched for Women's Rights, and LGBTQ rights. Her stories reflect the world she came from, the world she wants to live in and some of them the silliness that lives in her brain. Her genres range from young adult to OMG what the heck is happening this is not for children. Her pronouns are, She, Black, Woman, Ally, a friend.
