When America attempts to "purify" earth to maintain its own dominance, it sparks a worldwide nuclear holocaust. Teen friends Jessil and Soraj are among the few survivors. They escaped on a cruiser that now orbits the planet and is designed to help regenerate the earth's ecosystem. Soraj’s father leads the regeneration process and is hopeful that he can salvage a region in North America for the cruiser’s return.

But when Jessil discovers a message indicating her own father may have survived the holocaust back on earth, she’s determined to rescue him immediately with Soraj's aid. Can they succeed even though the planet they return to is very different from the one they left—and that their success could mean failure for the regeneration process?

{My Thoughts} – This book is rather interesting. It reminds of the movie Wall-E to be honest. A bunch of humans are sent off onto a ship in space until they are able to return back to Earth. The catch is however, only certain people were allowed onto that ship and many were left behind to die during the decontamination process. The objective was to completely destroy Earth and what was left of it’s inhabitants in order to create a purified race. Some of those that had made it on the ship as stowaways had been separated from their father. Over the years in space they soon are able to connect to some video feed in which one of the children learn their father is still alive. The book then goes on about them trying to locate and rescue him. This book is well written, it has a lot of potential and was really hard to put down.
