No longer the land of the free. But home of a few brave souls.
From #1 New York Times bestselling author Ellen Hopkins comes an edge-of-your-seat novel about two teens struggling to survive in a radicalized, militarized United States.
The United States government, now called the Confederation, has redefined what it means to be “American.” The parameters are narrow; the exceptions few.
In danger and on the run, two teens who fall outside the “correct” Confederation designation must join forces on a thousand mile journey north for safety. But survival means relying on strangers and not everyone is who they appear to be. Who do you turn to when the only person you can trust is yourself, and one wrong whisper can be the difference between freedom and imprisonment, life and death?---from the publisher
