Young Adult Science Fiction
The future Earth where Nubbin Beck lives is as unforgiving
as The Company that runs it. She has never been outside,
only peered through a glass barrier at a punishing desert
where daytime temperatures boil the blood and monstrous,
human-devouring insects dominate the night. Nubbin's family
survives in a technology-driven cave community named
Hopelight Enclave, one of dozens of enclaves net-worked and
managed by The Company, which came to power after developing
a disease-eliminating microchip. Now every man, woman, and
child carries a chip, so the Company can monitor the health
of its employees, while controlling access to water, food,
and other life-sustaining resources.
After her family risks their lives to rescue a stranger from
the desert—an ex-Company employee thought to be dead—Nubbin
struggles to keep the fugitive hidden in her home. He has
plenty say about The Company and its malicious plans for the
microchip. If what he says is true, she knows she must warn
her friends and their families. Determined to uncover the
truth, Nubbin learns that questions are not only prohibited,
they can be deadly. And of all the secrets she uncovers,
Nubbin herself lies at the heart of the most shocking.
Secrets of Hopelight is the first book of a middle grade
dystopian series where humans cling to scattered enclaves,
giant lizards roam the wasteland, and a paternalistic
corporation rules every aspect of life.
