"The bells of St. Marks' were ringing changes up on the mountain when Bud skated over to the mod parlor to upgrade his skull gun." (from the first line)

From the Publisher:
Set in 21st century Shanghai, this novel of the cyber-future follows Nell, a street urchin, after she stumbles on a very powerful interactive device that has the power to decode and reprogram her entire life. Reprint.
Annotation:
Neo-Victorian and genius nanotechnologist John Percival Hackworth has created an interactive educational device, the Primer, for the granddaughter of one of the rich and powerful. He also has created an illicit copy of the device for his own daughter, but that copy is stolen from him and given to Nell, a child with no prospects for education or advancement. Winner of the 1996 Hugo Award for Best Novel.
