Sixteen-year-old streetwise orphan Jax Stone is an expert at surviving in a dangerous city, where the rich have fled to the New Continent and the deadly daytime sun forces the middle class and the poor to live in sewer tunnels. But she and the other homeless must be wary of rats —the furry ones underground that steal their food and invade their shelter, and the human ones above-ground who steal their children and threaten their lives. When Jax discovers her singing has a hypnotic effect on rats and children, she uses her gift, outwitting the tyrannical mayor, to lead her brother and all the children in the dying city to safety with the help of a ragtag band of friends and a handsome stranger, who holds the secret to her past.
