Anda Bridge used to live in San Diego but now she lives in Flagstaff.  She’s a new girl at school desperately in need of fitting in and making friends.  On her birthday she’s offered the chance to join a guild on the popular MMORPG, CourseGold.  Online, Anda becomes the warrior KaliDestroyer.   Life becomes complicated as the lines blur between the real and online worlds.  How real are her online friends?  Can her actions in the game affect people in the real world?  Can she make a difference in the lives of people on the other side of the world?  If you’re interested in gaming, great  art, or the interconnection of the world around us you will really enjoy this graphic book.
