In Averee’s world, the usual trials of making your way into adulthood come with the added stress of Ranked, a ubiquitous and all-knowing tech innovation that awards you points for socially acceptable behavior and takes them away when you don’t conform. It seems fun enough at first, but it becomes much more than a game when Averee’s rank suddenly drops overnight. Now she’s getting hassled at school, blocked from her favorite restaurants, and her mom is out of a job. Luckily, her bottom-ranked BFF Zoe is a perfect accomplice for what’s about to be the heist of the century: a raid on the app’s corporate HQ to set things right and its spokesperson, the virtual popstar Pretty Kitty!
