Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"Social media status determines real world status in this near-future YA coming of age story. Averee is a typical high schooler living in the near future where social media status has real world consequences. The app, Ranked, determines everyone's status, not just online, but in real life; who you can hang out with, what places you have access to, what schools you can get into, and what jobs you can get. And Pretty Kitty, the virtual pop star, is the spokesperson for it all, letting everyone know what products they should buy and hangout spots they should frequent in order to increase their rank. Averee's rank is just high enough for an enjoyable like. Unlike her best friend, Zoe, who has no rank, Averee is able to eat lunch where she chooses and to have a boyfriend of a high rank. That is, until one day when her rank mysteriously drops all the way down to Zoe's level. With nothing left to lose, Averee and Zoe hatch to kidnap Pretty Kitty and hold her ransom. They embark on a quest that takes them to the corporate underbelly of Ranked, and discover how the technology was originally developed with good intentions but was twisted in order to fuel corporate greed and control people's lives. They team up with the scientist who originally developed the app in order to expose the dangers of Ranked, and restore proper order and control over their own lives."-- Provided by publisher.
