Orphaned as a child by a near-extinction event, Beth is now a feral teenager, scavenging amidst the decaying urban no-man's land sandwiched between the City, with its deadly technologies, and the encroaching wilderness. Beth expects her life to end brutally. What she discovers, at the very edge of survival, is hope.
