Global warning left the world uninhabitable one hundred and fifty years ago, and humans—even those genetically enhanced like me—couldn’t survive on the surface.
I long to exist outside the walls of this space station. I dream of the wind on my face and the ocean’s roar.
Daydreams become cold reality when I crash land on Earth. Now, the four people I love most are lost somewhere in what used to be Australia.
I have no idea if they’re alive.
I have no idea if I’ll live to see tomorrow.
And I have no idea how the handsome man with grey eyes on the surface even exists.
But if I want to see my friends again, I’ll need his help.
Prepare to crash into fast-paced adventure, fierce friendships, and slow-burn romance. A story full of heart, with a large twist of humor, discover this exciting new tale by USA Today Bestselling author, Kelly St Clare, today!
