If you think living in the present is hard, try living in the future.
For fifteen-year-old Fumie Nakamura, trouble starts when her flight home from Tokyo takes an unexpected detour bringing her back to a world she no longer recognizes.
San Francisco is broken, a city of divides. On one side of the bay is the Sprawl, a crowded slum where virtual reality sims keep the masses entertained. On the other side, gleaming skyscrapers filled with the rich and powerful.
Torn from the only people she knows and placed in a group home on the edge of the sprawl, Fumie has to find her way in unfamiliar surroundings. How she deals with the things she discovers will change her life—and the people around her— forever.
This is the first book in a fresh, new young adult science fiction series that will captivate you with its characters and keep you turning the pages.
