In a world which is believed to be dead, man lives in enormous glass spheres, also known as the Globes. 

What they don't know, however, is that it is safe to roam the scarred earth once more. The Outsiders, the ones which have escaped the Globes, know this. They chose freedom--at a price. They live in constant fear of murderous wolves and the Authorities of the Globes, which are all keen on killing all the Outsiders. But, it's all worth it: freedom over dictatorship. 

Tenna Finley, a curious, headstrong 17-year-old is an Outsider, abandoned by her mother when she was an infant. When her camp gets attacked by the Authorities, she has to find help, and the only person who can has been jerked out of her reach. 

Tenna has to save her friend. But that also means, that she has to return to that glass prison, which she thought she'd left behind forever...the Globes.

A very fine start, and I absolutely loved the last two sentences! And stylistic perfect writing, I think (with the exception of one globe's instead of globes')

                              First off, amazing introduction! It has a really nice flow and it has the reader ask questions like; what is Tenna story? and will the world become clean again? There weren't any grammar mistakes, and I really want to keep reading on!

I am merely a fish, who fell for the hook, but I do believe I'll enjoy life in this glass prison of mine.
                              That's a metaphor for both the reader AND the content. Two birds one stone, yeah?
