What is Rebels of the 512
Laid off from her job, thanks to Texas Governor Nick Harry’s most recent round of budget cuts, high school history teacher Suzie Jimenez does not get mad–she goes rogue. Joining a rebel band of ninjas in their quest to fight the power and the pirates that support it, Suzie is swept up in the ultimate battle between good and evil. Can one woman beat the system, or will Suzie be consigned to the dustbin of state history along with Cesar Chavez and her fellow freedom fighters?
