Three years ago a mysterious
spill destroyed Addie’s hometown killing many residents including her parents.
Addie wasn’t there when the spill happened and thankfully her younger sister
Lexa was on a bus of kids that managed to escape. Now Addy travels into the
forbidden spill zone to take pictures which she sells to support Lexa and
herself. She takes Lexa’s mysterious doll with her who needs to “recharge” and
whom Lexa seems to communicate with. When a collector offers Addie a huge sum
of money for a dangerous task in the Spill Zone, Addie must decide if she is
willing to break her rules to help her and her sister.
It's bizarre,but a good bizarre. While this story may have
a female protagonist, readers who prefer male protagonists should not let that
stop them. The mystery of what happened to Addie’s hometown and the
illustrations of what she sees will intrigue readers.
