Young heroes decide that they
are not too young or too powerless to change their world in this gripping,
futuristic young adult novel by the New York Times bestselling author of the Printz Award–winning Monster.
It is 2035. Teens, armed only
with their ideals, must wage war on the power elite.
Dahlia is a Low Gater: a
sheep in a storm, struggling to survive completely on her own. The Gaters live
in closed safe communities, protected from the Sturmers, mercenary thugs. And
the C-8, a consortium of giant companies, control global access to finance,
media, food, water, and energy resources—and they are only getting bigger and
even more cutthroat. Dahlia, a computer whiz, joins forces with an ex-rocker,
an ex-con, a chess prodigy, an ex-athlete, and a soldier wannabe. Their goal:
to sabotage the C-8. But how will Sayeed, warlord and terrorist, fit into the
equation? Download and start listening now!
