Series overview: Aaron is a master game programmer. He programs incredible virtual worlds for online, multi-player games. Gamers can experience virtual worlds for real in their online avatars.

Ananya, Aaron’s daughter is following footsteps of her father. Aaron has shared many secrets of programming virtual worlds with his daughter. But unknown to Aaron, Ananya has found a secret passage beyond the bounds of virtual worlds. An accidental discovery while playing with her old computer ‘Ankam’, opens the passage to virtual space for Ananya. She can move at the speed of light on the web with Ankam but is often restricted by limits of electronic hardware.

That is not a problem with Josh around in the neighborhood. Josh has a great inclination for robotics. Josh breaches all the hardware barriers and opens the whole internet for them. Josh and Ananya ride the web to the limits of connectivity with the help of Ankam. Web connects anything and everything in today’s world and they find it full of surprises. Their hunger for knowledge earns them the nickname ‘Questrons’. On a quest for knowledge, they make several secret voyages to a virtual world.

On this voyage, they explore secrets of the internet as they visit Space Agency to trace social network feed about an asteroid lurking to collide with Earth. But off course ‘Questrons’ can solve any problem with the right approach and attitude….

  • The paperback version would be a great addition to my friend’s classroom library. As she teaches at a Title 1 school, her students do not have access to a Kindle. This would be a very age-appropriate book for her students.

    Thank you,
