It’s 2052 and our world is dying – the population has reached 34 billion; the polar caps have melted and Earth has become a single-country planet. Our survival seems to be guaranteed by a draconian new law requiring the expendables to choose someone to die or choose to die in someone else's stead. Only the High-Potentials, those whose contributions are deemed essential to humankind, are exempt. Yana Perkins is eight and lives with her mother Sarah. But what if Yana were earmarked for death? And what if Sarah were not allowed to take her daughter's place? And what if the one who could replace Yana is being marked by someone else?
