Shut-in hacker girl? Missing sister? Virtual reality? Count me in.
I've always been fascinated with the lives of shut-ins and hackers. I'm fairly certain if given the opportunity I'd have already slipped into the life of a shut-in, and I definitely fall in love with hacker girls - admittedly, almost instantly (my one exception to insta-love :) ).

Our protagonist, Diana, is supposedly computer literate. She's a reformed hacker who conducts all of her very successful business in the Otherworld, which is an online game simulation? I guess?
