It is 2056, five years after an influenza pandemic wiped out nearly half the world's population. Local level government and law enforcement have stabilized society to the point that 12-year-old Tharon Trace's biggest concern is being used as a pawn in her fickle friends' quest for popularity. But all that changes when Tharon and her two best friends, Helm Harris and Kaid Walker, are tangled in a web of murder, abduction, and government conspiracy. No longer a pawn, Tharon, Helm, and Kaid must escape and survive to block a strategic move that, if left unchecked, will destroy the fragile freedoms and security her friends and family have left.
Is it a coincidental fluke that thrusts Tharon in the middle of danger or is it her destiny? If destiny, then who is orchestrating her fate?
