Short Synopsis
From Caragh M. O'Brien comes the first book in a series of dystopian novels that follow the life of Gaia Stone, a young midwife who is forced to question everything she believes.

Full Synopsis
In the future, in a world baked dry by the harsh sun, there are those who live inside the wall and those, like sixteen-year-old midwife, Gaia Stone, who live outside. Gaia has always believed it is her duty, with her mother, to hand over a small quota of babies to the Enclave. But when Gaia's mother and father are arrested by the very people they so dutifully serve, Gaia is forced to question everything she has been taught to believe. Gaia's choice is now simple: enter the world of the Enclave to rescue her parents, or die trying.

"[People] who enjoy adventures with a strong heroine standing up to authority against the odds will enjoy this compelling tale." ---School Library Journal

"This science fiction adventure is a brisk and sometimes provocative read, thanks to solid pacing, a resourceful heroine, and a few surprise twists." ---Publishers Weekly

"Reminiscent of both 1984 and a Brave New World, this gripping page-turner is a perfect intro to futuristic, dystopian fiction." ---Education.com
