Summary
In the coming centuries the world's population has exploded. The earth's crowded with cities, animals are nearly all extinct, and drought's so widespread that water is rationed. There are no maps, no borders, no numbered years, and no freedom, except for an elite few. It's a harsh world for an orphan like Nadia Stepan, and she dreams of a green vacation spot called Lighthouse Island, in a place called the Pacific Northwest
Summary
In a future world where animals are nearly all gone and drought has taken over, an orphan embarks on a dangerous journey to Lighthouse Island, a vacation spot in the Pacific Northwest, during which she meets a man who changes the course of her life.
