Seventeen year old Aralyn Clearfield is princess (soon to be queen) of WestBank, a large city that takes up almost half of the island it's located on. So it's safe to say Aralyn has her fair share of stress! Fortunately, she has her good friend/traveling pedaler Cleo Black to keep her company and from going off the deep end. But when his letters depicting his travels top coming, Aralyn jumps at the chance to get away from her duties and go on a rescue mission for her dear, dear friend. But as she travels further into the island, she starts to unearth more questions than answers. Who is this enigmatic boy in white? Why have these people become outcasts and refugees in their own country? And exactly what happened in this "war" twenty years ago…?
