Editorial analysis

John Percival Hackworth is a nanotech engineer on the upward thrust similtaneously he steals a replica of "A young Ladycff0four78#three9;s Illustrated Primer" for his daughter Fiona. The primer is if truth be told a perfect lapbest built with nanotechnology that was once as soon as designed to show Lord Finkle-McGrawcff0four78#three9;s daughter and to show her how you are able to think for herself inside the stifling neo-Victorian society. alternatively Hackworth loses the primer sooner than he can provide it to Fiona, and now the "e e-book" has fallen into the palms of young Nell, an underprivileged lady whose life is in a position to amendment.
