Fifty four years after the Corporate World War of 2050, fifteen-year-old Giluli wavers between angst and courage as she faces the prejudice that caused her people, the Red Mighties, to create their own Nationland in a territory in which squirrels and deer are extinct, clover and dandelion are nutritional staples, and even the water of the Great Lakes is putrid. Giluli wants to help mutant babies from all over the world, but she will have to deal with a very greedy politician first.

With a compelling, authentic and energetic voice, Giluli pulls us into her world and her adventure. Righteous and endearing, she forges ahead into the complexities of growing up at the epicenter of clashing ideologies, political tensions and ah yes, high school drama. I couldn't wait to see how she'd come through it all! 

– Soramimi Hanarejima, author of Visits to the Confabulatorium 

North Korea blasts a nuclear bomb on its southern neighbor, and the resulting corporate warfare changes history and human beings  . . . Debra Leea Glasheen depicts an intricate plot in a masterfully-constructed, highly-detailed futuristic world.
