I wrote and illustrated a series of books to help my daughter survive without heartbreak in the new world of digital revolution.
“Kara Kedi” resembles Cinderella. Kara is the hardworking, house cleaning, cooking, step sister of two, struggling to find herself enough social media followers for a respectable social position. One day Auntie PR changes that, and after an intesive make up session, Kara becomes the star of an event. She finally gets the personal attention of the most successful CEO of the town. When she leaves the party to catch the Uber that was set up earlier, her shoe falls only to inspire the most popular hashtag of the following day: #mysterygirl.
In the chaos of the social media, #mysterygirl attracts all sorts of theories, loses its meaning quickly, and Kara’s claim of being the #mysterygirl is neither seen nor believed. In the end, the hashtag is just forgotten.
