If you lived in a world that decided your future and who you would love... what would you fight for?
Como is still recovering from the devastating water war which decimated the population. To regrow the population the government decides whom a person will marry at 180 moons old.
Twell has one year of education left before the genetic partnering, and it’s already starting on a bad note. She’s secretly in love with her best friend, but he’s fallen for the most obnoxious girl on Como. The most popular boy in school delights in provoking her. And Twell has another secret- she can move objects with her mind.
But Twell isn’t the only student with paranormal gifts. The popular yet infuriatingly handsome boy has the power to heal. The best friend stealer can electrocute people. Then Twell and the other gifted students are assigned to a program that will turn them into human weapons.
When Como's attacked again Twell risks her life to protect those she loves, facing enemies she never saw coming.
If Twell's lucky, she might find more than her calling, she might find true love. That is, if the government will let her.
