For 18 years twins Ava and Mira have shared a single life, trading off a day at a time.  When their secret is exposed, they must run for their lives to the border, leaving their father behind.  If they can escape the Rule of One they have a chance at a life. And while they just want to live, they also may be that needed spark.

Students who love post-apocalyptic books will totally go for this.  The second book will have a weightier burden to bear, as this one was all action and danger – but now the work of the rebellion will begin.
