For Ages: 12 and up
In this futuristic, outer space thriller that #1 New York Times bestselling author Veronica Roth calls “richly imagined” and “beautifully written,” Terra has to decide between supporting the rebellion she believes in—and saving the life of the boy she loves.

“This richly textured first novel deserves to be widely read” (Publishers Weekly).

Sixteen-year-old Terra’s situation is tough. A dead mom. A grieving dad. A bitchy boss, and a betrothed who won’t kiss her no matter how bad she wants it. She’s doing her best to stay afloat, even when she gets assigned a vocation she has no interest in: botany.

But after Terra witnesses the Captain’s guard murder an innocent man, she’s drawn into a secret rebellion bent on restoring power to the people. The stakes are higher than anything she could have imagined. When the rebellion gives Terra an all-important mission, she has to decide where her loyalties lie for once and for all. Because she has started to fall for the boy she’s been sent to assassinate…
