In Karo, no one is safe. The government is looming over the people, and even though Upper Karo is thousands of miles away from Lower Karo, their power is painful and their punishments unjust. Karo is rebelled against, war breaking out. People die and people lie.
Sadie's father will never return, never laugh with her again. Sadie is left sliding across grief's slippery surfaces. She's losing touch with life, forgetting how to live at the worst time ever, when survival is down to skill not chance, when she needs to remember most how to protect her family. But Karo is crushing, putting to much weight on her shoulders. Balancing is to hard for her, and she makes fatal mistake after fatal mistake. Who will Sadie become? Will she let go of who she is and kill? She can't make a good choice; whatever she does creates chaos and reveals secrets best left hidden.
The question on everyone's mind; Will Karo stand or will Karo fall?
