Book Description: Beulah has the worst luck with computers. They lose her files, corrupt her data, and in her more sleep-deprived moments she feels they conspire against her. When she begins to see little fox-faced demons spring out of the CPU of one machine, she fears she must be losing her mind, but what if they aren't hallucinations after all?

Mary's Review: Beulah's English final is lost somewhere in the computer. Without it, she will lose her scholarship and she won't pass.
The computer has been giving her trouble from the beginning. It lost her room assignment assigning her to roommates who are loud, uncaring party girls. It has also misspelled her email name just to name a few things. The computer does not like Beulah.
She had until 8 the next morning to get her grade in the system. She had to get the sysadmins team-Mike and Rodney- to help her. This was not going to be easy. While helping the sysadmins team, she meets Root a pixel dot image and thinks she is losing her mind. Now the adventure begins. Come along and see where this syfy adventure takes Beulah.
I really liked this short story. Once started, I could not put it down. It's a great sci-fi fantasy short story and I recommend it for all young adults ages 13 and up.
