Synopsis

Everyone tells 14-year-old Jordan Fontaine not to worry about the summer camp that isn't really a summer camp, not to worry about the survival statistics she's been calculating since elementary school, or about the quickly averted eyes and frowning mouths of her peers when she tells them her Liaison is coming to visit her family.  She does not dare to tell anyone that her pulse quickens when she looks at the beautiful Liaison. But the Liaison, whose role is to supply their inhuman masters with bodies, is being manipulated by another. And Jordan will be drawn into a dangerous coup of which she is unaware.  This is a world where women are bred like cattle, ensuring the continuation of the human race--or, as they are known to the malevolent Over, sustenance. Perhaps some children need to be seen and heard.
