NaNoWriMo 2012 book. Last updated
Saffron's father has been grouchy since her mother died after they moved to the Seaweed Slum, but he is all Saffron has in the world, and she prays to Infinity the patrols won't catch him when he sneaks off on his secret missions. Dad was an astronautics engineer in his heyday and his obsession with space junk gives metal fatigue a whole new meaning. That stuff is a waste of space.
