Nothing is as it seems. These are the first words Kiva's best friend Seth says, after three years of silence. Kiva thought she was growing up in ancient Alexandria. That's what she and all her classmates had been led to believe by their parents. It turns out she was living in virtual reality, in a sleep chamber in deep space, and three years ago, Seth woke up. Now it's her turn to join him. Together, Kiva and Seth must take an escape shuttle to search for the engine part their home ship needs to keep running. But it's been a long time since the Krakatoa has communicated with any of the other three ships harboring human civilization. Hand this to fans of high-concept science fiction and heart-pounding thrillers à la Ender's Game and Passengers.
