Joanna is everything Joan wants to be. She's a sleek warrior with cascading raven hair, a girl who is smart and brave. The catch? Joanna exists only in the Virtual Reality program of Joan's computer. Devastated by her recent accident, and confined to a wheelchair, Joan is searching for a new reality. She thinks she's found one in an exciting experimental computer game she plays with her new friend "Whizkid." But Joan and Whizkid are discovering that their game is becoming too a little too real - and dangerous. There's only one way out: Joan and Steve must confront the faces of their own fears ...
"... a gripping story of triumph over the fears that keep people from being free to be themselves." - Quill & Quire
