Set on a family-run interstellar freighter called the Harland and a mysterious remote space station, E. K. Johnston's latest is story of survival and self-determination. Pendt Harland family sees her as a waste of food on their long-haul space cruiser when her genes reveal an undesirable mutation, but if she plays her cards right she might have a chance to do much more than survive. During the layover at the space dock, Pendt escapes and forms a lucky bond with the Brannick twins, the teenage heirs of the powerful family that owns the space station. Against long odds, the trio hatches a long-shot scheme to take over the station and thwart the destinies they never wished for.
