You shared your life online. Now how will you get it back?

There's no such person as sic_girl. She's just a piece of code, a fake internet personality turned internet celebrity that Dani Farr designed to win a bet.

But she's just started spilling state secrets.

Dani can't imagine why anyone would hack a bit of code she created as a joke... but sic_girl has Dani in her sights, and now she risks losing everyone and everything she cares about.

Government minister Bethany Lehrer has put her job on the line to launch Digital Citizen, a national online ID scheme. sic_girl seems determined to bring that down. And if Dani and Bethany don't figure out who - or what - is behind sic_girl, it won't just be their lives and privacy at stake.

Because the more secrets sic_girl spills, the clearer it becomes:

Nothing is private.
No one is safe.

MEDIA REVIEWS

A fascinating and hair-raising examination of just how much we are in thrall to computers, and how willingly we give up our privacy. - Guardian

Embedded with techy jargon and shards of wit, Sockpuppet takes a snapshot of our age of online shaming and oversharing and runs it through a skewed, feverish filter. The result is compelling. - Financial Times

Dani Farr is a splendidly memorable protagonist: foul-mouthed, antisocial, extremely clever with computers but awful with people, not conventionally attractive and into rough sex. Hurrah for tech and her fellow travellers. - Interzone
