Uma is a teenager who lives on the moon and doesn’t quite fit in. When she gets a chance to visit earth, where she hasn’t been since she was a small child, she is thrilled. But then she is suddenly forbidden, she makes the trip anyway and is now a wanted runaway. She bumps into Talitha, a teen who has been trying to survive in the wasteland with her twin brother. Talitha is looking for a moonling, but since Uma is earthling looking, she doesn’t make the connection. They start to fall in love and eventually Talitha must decide where her loyalty lies. Even worse, the moon base is in danger and the trio are dragged into the nefarious plot.

I had a difficult time describing the plot to this book, as there is a lot of going on. The world is masterfully crafted and the characters are distinctive. It was a hard to book to put down and a very fun read. I think the cover is appealing and its great sci-fi, it will leave the reader questioning commercialism.
