In a time where the Dept. of Reproductive Management controls who can have children, those that break the law are mercilessly hunted, arrested and often killed. Their illegal children are sent to reeducation centers where department-approved classes can ensure their distorted views are not passed on.
Despite growing up in one of these centers, 16-year-old Maggie Ward has a difficult time believing their lessons. She tries to ignore her misgivings, but after learning her brother is secretly being trained as a Remo – government agent that violently breaks up illegal families – she concocts a plan to escape. With the help of a tech-savvy illegal, they locate the Resistance and finally learn their parents’ identities.
The truth is more disturbing than any of them could have imagined. Dark government conspiracies, unstable Resistance members, and a dangerous cross-country journey collide as Maggie races to keep the truth about her past from destroying those closest to her.
