AN UNSUSPECTING YOUNG WOMAN HAS PLANS TO SAVE THE WORLD, BUT SHE'LL HAVE TO STOP A DANGEROUS LIAR FIRST, IN THIS DYSTOPIAN FANTASY BY AUTHOR S. ANDREA MILNE.
The Earth’s lakes and oceans are mostly gone, and grass has been replaced with red sand. Humans survive this inhospitable environment by living together in cement compounds. Survive, that is, if they don’t contract the deadly disease that plagues the world.
Sixteen year-old passionate rebel Nora Watson wants only to get by until her 18th birthday, a major milestone most don’t reach. Then she’ll move to the central compound, where she’ll become a scientist and help humanity.
But her plans are about to be derailed by two men.
First, there’s Tomas Classen, a cute older boy who insists on hanging out with her, even after Nora accidentally breaks his nose. Then, there’s a slick travelling salesman by the name of Mr. Manners, who claims to be in possession of a cure for the disease.
His promises sound like salvation...but Nora can tell something's wrong.
Can she prove Mr. Manners is a fraud, and save her community from theft?
And what’s the deal with Tomas? Is he really interested or is he playing pretend?
