Summary
In the wake of a devastating plague, two communities emerge as bastions of survival. One is called the City, and its people scrabble for scraps in the wasteland. The other, New Charity, enjoys the bounty of its hydroelectric dam and refuses City denizens so much as a drop of precious water. When City-dweller Cressyda inherits her father’s ranch within New Charity, she becomes intent on opening the dam to all--no matter the cost. But when Syd reunites with her old best friend, Casandra, she realizes that her plans could destroy the fragile lives they’ve built in order to survive. Yet when Syd discovers evidence that her father might have been murdered, she is more determined than ever to exact revenge on New Charity’s corruption. Pitted against Cas, as well as her own family, Syd must decide how to secure the survival of both settlements without tipping them over the brink to utter annihilation
Summary
Only two communities have survived a deadly plague, but the water controlled by one of the communities, New Charity, threatens the existence of the other and it is up to Cressyda to make the water available to all without risking a violent rebellion
