This is not just a story for sci/fi or post-apacolyptic junkies. This is a story for anyone who loves a good story. It is about loyalty and friendship. It is about one young girl facing her fears and finding the strenght within herself to protect her people and another young girl rebelling against the savagery of her people and her own mother.
