How the Hacker Stole Christmas 

For Children Everywhere 
who aren’t staring at a screen.
That's how this book begins. It's a playful, funny parody of the Christmas classic with a modern setting, a modern theme, and a modern villain.
In this story a sad, angry teen lashes out against her classmates on Christmas break because of how they act and how they treat her. She's sick of being bullied by her classmates in school and online at home. So she does something about it. 
So what happens when this hacker takes out electronic distractions on Christmas Eve? What happens when the teens can't post pictures of their presents on Christmas day? Does the town get together and learn the meaning of Christmas? Or did the hacker steal that too?
This story has been created by the team behind Hacker Highschool, a non-profit initiative to use hacking as a learning methodology to engage teens, improve cybersafety awareness, and train the next generation of cybersecurity professionals. So we get the hacking parts completely correct. We also (unfortunately) get the teen cyberbullying and abuse of social networks completely correct. Which is why this story is so important to be told.
The book has been co-illustrated by the (then) 13-year-old Ayla Madison of Youtube and Instagram's Happy Mopey and Carmen Sullo, an ontological leadership coach with a special interest in all things art and family.
This book is fun for everyone with many learning points about hacking, technology, society, and self esteem.
