Sixteen-year-old Angela and her father are the last survivors on earth. She dreams of adventure and romance, but only finds it in books. In the confines of her garden paradise, she’s untouched by contaminants that caused the rest of the humanity to mutate into murderous beasts or die. But staying in the garden sure gets lonely. When a 17-year-old boy stumbles upon Angela’s home with news about a thriving community, his presence challenges everything she knew about the world. She dares to leave her garden for the first time to find a better home.
In the authoritarian society that she finds, the line between man and mutant is murkier than she expected. Secrets from Angela's past reemerge, and she learns life outside the garden isn't all it's cracked up to be. Her father is in danger, and the men tasked with protecting the settlement are extremely fond of murder.
With their lives on the line, can Angela create one last happy ending in a hopeless world?
