A lost game of rock/paper/scissors.
A boy forever changed.
After losing a bet to his best friend, Arlo leaves his home in Central Services Tower for the first time for a rally held by the student-led Resistance movement. Injured in a Services’ police force raid, Arlo discovers the truth about him and the other children living in the tower; all semblance of safety is gone and he can’t return to the life he knew. With help from his friends, new and old, and a kindred outcast named Imma, he must choose between a dismal but certain future as an enhanced soldier or find the rebel in him ready to risk it all for freedom.
