sixteen-year-old Sev is forced to run away from the only
home she’s ever known in this “richly imagined”
(BCCB, starred review) post-apocalyptic debut novel
from Caitlin Sangster.
Sev is branded with the mark of a criminal—a star burned

kept in a paralyzed half sleep by the same plague that
destroyed the rest of the world. And as further punishment,
Sev is forced to do hard labor to prove that she’s more

When the government blames Sev for a horrific bombing, she

Unimaginable dangers lurk outside the city walls, and Sev’s
only hope of survival lies with the most unlikely
person—Howl, the chairman’s son. Though he promises to lead
her to safety, Howl has secrets, and Sev can’t help but

life and the lives of everyone she loves may hang in the
