Georgia has spent a year unbound from her life as an Unwanted in a dystopian America.
After searching for her best friend, Oval, but with no luck, Georgia has settled in Calgary, Alberta, where she has a boyfriend, a job, and a studio apartment. A normal life is starting to feel nice. But she can't let go of her past. And even if she could, it won't let go of her.
One night, she finds her apartment ransacked, and she realizes someone is looking for her, prompting her to leave behind the small life she's built and to keep her promise to find Oval. An attack by a mysterious girl her age reveals that someone knows who she is, and they want Oval, too. But why?
The answer will lead her into the middle of an underground resistance, and Georgia could be the key to taking that resistance to the next level. She's offered a mission that will put the freedom she has known at risk. A mission that will reveal a shocking secret. A mission that could change everything.
