Anda has recently moved from her hometown, her grandmother, and her old friends. She has a hard time fitting in because of her physical appearance and love of gaming. She’s only played off-line games until Liza the Organiza, president of Clan Fahrenheit in Coursegold Online, comes and talks at her school. She offers the girls there a temporary three-month membership to her clan with possible full membership afterwards if they can prove themselves. The only catch? To embrace themselves as girls, in-game and out. Anda accepts and learns about economics, different cultures, languages, bullying, and helps a ‘gold farmer’ named Raymond who she finds out works online and in-game to survive in real life.
