In the year 2163 a corrupt World Government controls everything on our planet and beyond.
Sixteen year-old Sierra has been so caught up in her own world of saving animal test subjects and her father’s disappearance, she hasn’t paid much attention. When she finally finds his location, she and her friend set off on a covert interplanetary mission to rescue him, she begins to see the corruption first hand.
Discovering that her father has been on the front lines secretly trying to save human test subjects inspires her to join a revolution. But she is afraid of the collateral damage of hurting the people she loves. Will she find the strength to make a deal with the mad scientist Cromwell to save not just her friends and family but everyone?

After the meal, Yesha and Al both help me to the red door. I hold on a little longer than I have before. This is a comfort I’ve yearned for lately. I wish I could bottle it up and take it everywhere with me. When it’s Al’s turn, we hug and he peck-kisses me. The butterflies have become angels. I let the feeling lift me from my physically depressed state. I smile and blow him a kiss as his railcar leaves.
I limp as I step forward with the line and with less help. Yesha notices my limp and switches sides to put my bad side arm over her shoulders again. She makes a perfect-sized crutch. I smile sideways at her, and she smiles in return. When we’re first in line and Colsam sees us, he steps off the car, walks to me, and lifts me up. He carries me to the car, but before setting me down he asks me a question.
