"Filled with exotic aliens, dangerous situations, and fast-paced adventure. Younger sci-fi fans will happily hang in with JT." — Booklist

Thirteen-year-old Johnny Turnbull has always known there was something different about him. It turns out he’s the first-ever human softwire — able to enter and communicate with computers with his mind. Now that JT and two hundred other orphans have been put to work in alien factories on the first ring of Orbis, things are going very wrong. The "perfect" central computer is malfunctioning, and suspicious eyes are turning to JT. Could he be the one responsible?

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

What happened next surprised even me.

The back of my eyeballs exploded into a ring of brilliant blue light. Instead of seeing the files in my mind's eye, my eyelids melted away and exposed the complex mechanics of the computer. It was as if I had pushed my head inside, as if I had physically entered the central computer. I felt a rush of electricity across my skin, exploring my face, as though something was trying to read me. The horrible noise outside quieted, and soon I was able to see things much more clearly. The colors inside the computer were as bright as in my first nightmare.

Then I saw a small figure running through the files cloaked in radiant green electrons.
