Ninjas of the 512: A Texas-Sized Satire
Good gals wear black
Suzie Jimenez is a rabble-rousing Texas history teacher who's always taught her students to fight oppression. Teaching an alternative curriculum that celebrates nonviolent protest, methods of peaceful rebellion and the state's homegrown freedom fighters, Suzie encourages her students to question everything, including unjust state laws. But all of that is about to come to an end, thanks to Governor Nick Harry.
A week before classes resume for the fall, Suzie and the rest of the teachers at Rebel Yell High School are laid off by the Governor's new budget cuts. Harry declares war on the teachers, cutting their jobs and confiscating their paychecks for his Rainy Day Fund. But Suzie won't back down from this fight.
Instead of getting mad, she goes rogue.
Joining a rebel band of ninjas Suzie starts a revolution in the state capital of Austin, but quickly discovers she's in over her head. Not only does Governor Harry have a secret weapon, but he's also employed a ship full of pirates to protect him as he launches a campaign for the Presidency! Suzie and the ninjas have to act fast to stop another arrogant Texan from taking the White House, but in the ultimate battle of good versus evil, it's every ninja for himself.
Can one woman beat the system, or will Suzie's ideals betray her?
