About the Book: A fable of a terrifying near future by critically acclaimed author Elizabeth Scott.

Grace was raised to be an Angel, a herald of death by suicide bomb. But she refuses to die for the cause, and now Grace is on the run, daring to dream of freedom. In search of a border she may never reach, she travels among malevolent soldiers on a decrepit train crawling through the desert. Accompanied by the mysterious Kerr, Grace struggles to be invisible, but the fear of discovery looms large as she recalls the history and events that delivered her uncertain fate.

Told in spare, powerful prose, this tale of a dystopian near future will haunt readers long after they've reached the final page.

GreenBeanTeenQueen Says: Elizabeth Scott is one of those authors who can write no wrong in my eyes. She's one of my author heroes and I think she's amazing. I'm always raving about her books to my teens and they are go-to books for booktalking. I can't wait to see Ms. Scott take on a dystopian novel and Grace one of my must reads for 2010!
