1989 was a big year for the world: it was the year the World Wide Web was conceived, as well as - slightly less importantly - Emma Gannon. Having grown up quite literally alongside the Internet,Ctrl, Alt; Deletetells the story of Emma's online life. From fighting her parents in order to use the family computer, to spending late nights experimenting in chat rooms; editing photos for MySpace and conducting dubious webcam exchanges, Emma was social networking way before it was a thing. Back then it was impossible for Emma to go viral. Now, in this laugh-out-loud memoir, she has decided to stop hiding behind a firewall and share her online story: the f**k-ups, incriminating messages, the rise of Twitter feminism, MSN catfishing and the ups and downs of blogging.

Ctrl, Alt; Deletewill make you laugh, it will make you cringe, and then it will make you find the nearest WiFi hotspot and Google yourself!
