[u]I Used To Be So Messed Up: The Totally True Autobiography of Paypa Pl8[/u]
You might be thinking, "So, Paypa Pl8, I remember you as the lead rapper of that band Cilantro that indulged excessively in the excess of the pop-star life and lost everything, and now you've written a book. But doesn't every celebrity do that when they sober up? What's so interesting about your story? Why should I spend my time and dime reading about all the stupid stuff you've done? And isn't it a little early for you to be claiming to be on the straight and narrow anyway?"
And I'd say, "Whoa. You're kind of hitting me with a lot of stuff at once here. I've got to think about this." Then I'd light a stick of incense. Probably sandalwood. Then, after a quick call to my publicist, I'd come back with a really snappy set of answers. So don't you worry your pretty little head about that.
Anyway, this book takes the reader through my topsy-tilty life, from my childhood to my rise to prominence in Cilantro to the days when it all went Horribly Wrong because I was so messed up all the time. Then I openly talk about being in rehab, and how I've been clean for five months now and totally have it all together again. So it's got a happy ending. Which is the real reason you'd like this book. Seriously! Have I ever lied to you before?
An novel written for the internet age. A highly original way of telling stories using words on a screen. A story told entirely through emails, blogs, chatroom logs, websites and diary entries. A world where anyone could be a terrorist.
Joseph Brady is not a normal 11 year-old. The brightest kid in his school, but also the worst-behaved. His teachers despair and can't control him. In the end they decide to put him into isolation in the artroom at lunchtimes. It doesn't take Joe long to work out how to use the artroom computer.
In 1997 Joe finds a way of getting the artroom computer online. Twenty years later, he'll be conducting highly co-ordinated terrorist attacks, beginning in the online world, but very quickly spreading into the offline world.
Nobody can trace their source until a quiet, shy professor in terrorism called Penelope Hunt discovers a link to Joe. She finds herself sucked into a conspiracy which transcends race and religion. With only a radical tele-atheist to help her, Penny decides to shut down Joe's activities, placing her own life in grave danger in the process.
'Joe is Online' spans continents and decades. Its setting is the boundary where the online and offline worlds meet.
