Seventeen-year-old Sunny O'Donnell has grown up with the knowledge that she will work as a bonded slave her entire life and then meet her fate in the annual Cull when she reaches the age of thirty-five. This is the price the urchins of the Pit pay for their place inside the Biodome, safe from a world teeming with radiation from the nuclear war of 2024.
Then Sunny’s mother takes her death walk to the Cull, and the hopeless reality of her existence becomes painfully clear. Bereft and disillusioned, Sunny’s grief leads her down a reckless path that sets off a riot in the Pit and leaves her accused of treason. Her only way of escaping public execution is to make a truce with her prison mate, Jack, who happens to be the heir to the presidency and hated by the Pit. Caught between two worlds on the brink of war, Sunny and Jack must weigh their own survival against risking everything to save the Pit.
S.M. McEachern delivers the action and adventure of The Hunger Games with philosophical notes of Les Misérables in her debut novel set in a future that is disturbingly plausible.
